Daniel Harvey

Nursery Manager

I am Daniel Harvey, the Centre Director of Shenley.

I began working at Shenley 21 years ago (the Centre was not trading under Busy Bees at that time), straight out of school as an Early Years Apprentice. I achieved my Level 2 in Early Years Education whilst here and started my Level 3 qualification before joining other Early Years Centres within St Albans where I achieved Levels 4 and 5 within the early years sector.

My returning Busy Bees journey started in October 2019 where I was appointed the role of Assistant Centre Director at St Albans Hospital, before moving here to Shenley in December 2019. I was offered the opportunity to become the Centre Director and this was a role that I could not turn down; ‘Going back to my roots’ in early years.
