Sarah Chandler

Nursery Manager

Hi I am Sarah the Nursery Manager.

I have worked with children for over 20 years. Prior to working at Busy Bees I have worked in many different Early Years sectors, including being an Early Years Improvement Advisor for the local authority. I have always been interested in Early Years, while studying,gaining qualifications and working full time. My highest qualification is BA Hons degree in integrated Working with Children & Families.

I have recently moved to this area having lived in the Midlands for nearly 20 years and i am excited to be given this exciting opportunity to work for Busy Bees. I believe in creating a warm and exciting environment for children, staff and parents. The start of your child's journey with us is getting to know your children through your knowledge, with careful planning and assessment.We will provide an inviting environment where your children can have many learning experiences which excites, inspires and nutures their key interests.

By working in partnership with parents and other professionals we improve the outcomes for each individual child.

Please feel free to come to me with any queries or questions, my door is always open.
