Why choose Busy Bees at Farnborough Q: -
Busy Bees at Farnborough Q is situated on the IQ Business Park just a short walk from the town centre. The nursery is a converted building over two floors benefitting from bright spacious airy rooms. Within the nursery we offer four base rooms with separate rooms for our younger babies, toddlers, and two to three year olds, and we also offer a large Pre-school room for our over threes. We are very pleased to offer a newly refurbished garden that the children, parents and staff are extremely excited about, with sensory areas, digging, planting, balancing, texture exploration and quiet areas.
We have a fully equipped kitchen on site where our long standing chef prepares nutritious meals and snacks for the children, working to a balanced healthy menu. As well as the chef many of our staff are long standing in the nursery with a variety of experiences and backgrounds, and we pride ourselves on a strong motivated team. Our senior staff are well trained achieving Foundation Degrees and BA (Hons) in Childhood Studies leading them to be excellent role models and mentors.
Our Parent Partnership group play a very active and important role in the nursery, meeting every few weeks and help with the organising of special events as well as contributing to the day to day running with ideas and input which we feel is a very important part of our successful nursery. We also offer a variety of initiatives for an all-round experience for our children including ‘Wake and Shake’ to get our children active and motivated.
But don’t just take our word for it listen to what our parents had to say in a recent survey:
Overall I feel this setting is excellent, your child is very much an individual and their needs are met in such a way. The staff are exceptional and a credit to the nursery which is a very warm and welcoming place for both children and parents. I would recommend this setting to each and every one I knew looking for somewhere. Ema White – Mum to Davey.

Hi my name is Katherine and I have managed the Farnborough Q nursery since December 2009. I joined the Busy Bees team as a Manager in January 2012 following the company’s acquisition of the nursery and my return from maternity leave. With almost 20 years experience working with children I have a passion to ensure myself and my team deliver the highest quality childcare. During my previous experience I have worked in a variety of nursery settings, as a children’s representative in Spain, and as a Childcare Manager for Virgin Active to name a few. All of these have combined to give me the wealth of knowledge needed to manage a busy nursery.
I have 2 children of my own who come to nursery with me, my daughter who attends the pre-school and my son who has settled fantastically in to the baby room. Both children have formed strong bonds with their key workers and they definitely give me their own feedback as to how much fun they have at nursery!
I thoroughly enjoy my job and it is a pleasure to see all the children develop on a day to day basis. We have a strong vision as a nursery team and feel that we play an important role in this very key part of a child’s life.
