Meet the team

Hannah Smith

Nursery Manager

My name is Michelle Thatcher and I am the Nursery Manager here at Busy Bees Reading International.

I first qualified as a nursery nurse in 1992 when I gained my NNEB. Since then I have aquired a wealth of experience within different childcare settings from being a full time nanny, working within a Pre Prep department in a private independent school and I have also managed a small independent nursery where my team and I gained a Ofsted rating of Outstanding consecutively.

Since joining the Busy Bees I have gained various qualifications and training including First Aid, First Aid at Work, Food Hygiene 2 & 3, Health & Safety, Safeguarding Children and Behaviour management.

I absolutely love my job - every day is different, every child is unique and being part of their growth and development is a real pleasure and very rewarding.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Busy Bees.
