“Work hard, have fun and make a difference”

Lesley Keillor

Manager at Blossom Downtown

“Work hard, have fun and make a difference” is a quote that I feel very passionate about and follow along with all other Blossom staff. It is important to have fun in any workplace and this is something Blossom Nursery implements through the Blossom Way.

I take pride working for such a respectful and environmentally friendly nursery. I have been with Blossom for over 2 years and have grown successfully during this time. I came in as a teacher and have evolved into the Nursery Manager for Blossom Downtown. This role has given me the confidence and the ability to manage a team of 30 staff with the help of my Centre Director.

I studied Early Education and Child Care in Scotland for 3 years, with a Higher National Certificate, then continued in this field as a Supervisor for a private nursery for a further 3 years. After getting married, we decided to settle down in Dubai and immediately I joined Blossom Nursery and have not looked back since. I have been in the childcare sector for over 8 years and it still gives me the energy to provide a safe, stimulating environment for children as my first day did.
