Hello, my name is Biljana Dokmanovic and I am proud to become Centre Director for Busy Bees in Fulham. I have over 20 years of experience of working in the nursery sector starting out as a nursery nurse and working my way up to becoming a Nursery Manager. I have two grown up children and two very different experiences as a mum. Being a mum, I completely understand a parent’s point of view on how hard it can be to leave your children, but rest assured I have supported many families from their first day at nursery until they are ready to spread their wings and fly off to school. There is always a place in my heart for every child I have looked after!
I grew up in Bosnia and came to England 30 years ago. From an early stage in my life, I always knew that I am destined to work with children as I felt that I understand them individually and that each child is special. I had the chance to work in childcare for many years and tried my best to inspire young children and make a difference to help them accomplish their dreams.
As a Centre Director I look forward to using my experience and my skills to inspire staff and parents in setting a good example and being a role model to all children. I am L3 qualified in Early Years Childcare and Education and have many relevant Childcare qualifications such as SEND, DSL, Management, First AID at work, Health and Wellbeing for children and staff and many more which helps me to provide best practice.
I enjoy going for long walks, visiting farms and generally being in nature. I also like to ride my bike and go swimming. I am well known for my story telling and my love of art. Cooking is one of my favourites and all those skills I use in my work as children love them too.
I look forward to meeting new families and welcoming them at our wonderful nursery in Fulham.
