Meet the team

Claire Bye

Nursery Manager

Hi my name is Claire Bye, the nursery manager here at St Albans Hospital. I have worked at the nursery since 2004, I absolutely love my job and my nursery.

I lead a well- qualified and dedicated team of staff who like myself have a passion for working with children and helping them to develop. As a manager I take great pride in leading my team to ensure that every single child within our care is given the best possible care during their Early Years.

Busy Bees at St Albans Hospital is a fantastic setting and we have been recognised as a Busy Bees 'centre of excellence' for five consecutive years and this is something that I am extremely proud of. The entire staff team work extremely hard to welcome every child and their family into the nursery and ensure they have an unforgettable journey through our nursery.
