Ann Bradley – Play Leader. Ann has worked at Beehive since 2003.

Bev and Ann are the certified ELLPs (Early Language Lead Practitioners) at Beehive.  They lead the team and inform parents in encouraging early language development right from the outset, so that the children are confident and skilled communicators before they start school.

Amanda Storey – Play Leader.  Amanda has worked at Beehive since 2008.

Vicky McClaren – Play Leader. Vicky has worked at Beehive since 2010.

Suzy D’Elia – Play Leader. Suzy has worked at Beehive since 2018.

Lisa is our administrator and also holds her Level 3 Early Years Educator.

Every member of our team has NVQ level 3 in childcare (or equivalent) as well as holding an up-to-date certificate in first aid.

The staff meet regularly to focus on each child’s individual learning development and care.  We are very proud of our high ratio during each session.  Consequently, we do not have a parent rota but parents are very welcome into the group at any time.  If you have a particular skill or feel you can contribute in any way – however small – we will be very grateful.
