Helen Smith

Nursery Manager

Hello, I'm Helen and I'm the Manager here at the new Busy Bees in Rotherham. I joined Busy Bees in June 2012 as the Manager, previous to that I was the Deputy Manager at another establishment. I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and have been in childcare for 16 years. 

I have worked in nurseries and as a Nanny since leaving college. I was working in Dublin as a Nanny when I met my Husband.

I have gained lots of experience of working with children and I am very focused on building positive relationships with the children, parents/carers and the staff. I have worked with children for a number of years and I never tire of seeing children achieve and grow, I am privileged to see so many children reach their milestones and never take these moments for granted.

My team and I are very proud of our new nursery and we hope you will enjoy all it has to offer.
