The Busy Bees nursery in Guiseley provides Outstanding childcare as reported by Ofsted in June 2013. The nursery opened in 2003 and is a 100 place purpose built setting, all on one level. The nursery is based in a great central location, with fantastic rail and road links to Ilkley, Leeds and Bradford.
The nursery has simple car parking, making drop off and pick up both safe and easy.
We also have a lovely large outdoor space with many play and learning opportunities for the children to enjoy.
We have a strong, caring staff team whose qualifications range from NVQ level 2 through to degrees in Early Childhood Studies. Also part of the team are a Health and Safety Coordinator, SENCO and Behaviour Management Mentor.
The nursery offers delicious home cooked foods prepared in our on-site kitchen. The foods are nutritionally balanced and the menus are on a 4 weekly rolling plan.
We are dedicated to ensuring that the children have an enjoyable time while at the nursery and that their needs and interests are met through fun and enjoyable play. This is achieved through a wide range of activities, such as creative craft, music, books, sand and water, role play, ICT, small world and construction. Daily feedback is given at the end of each session through Baby Diaries, for the younger children, and the older children are encouraged to share their experiences of the day with their key person along with their parent/carer.
Your child is assigned a key person and they would be responsible for ensuring your child’s learning and development is enhanced through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We ensure their developmental progress is communicated during Parent’s Evenings, or at any other time the parent wishes to discuss this. The children are able to take part in a variety of fun and exciting activities and our fantastic educational enhancements such as Babble to Chatter (to support early communication and language) Shake and Write (to encourage early handwriting skills) and Wake and Shake (to boost confidence and physical fitness). We also offer Spanish classes in our Preschool and a ‘Sing and Sign’ class in our toddler room.
Please take a look at our Events page to see what we will be up to in the next few weeks and see our News page for photos and write ups from previous events.
We have a Parent Partnership Group in place, which allows us to work in partnership with our parents and allows for on-going improvements and developments within the nursery. The meetings take place periodically and this allows members of the group to put forward their own and also other parent’s views and suggestions.
Come and see the fantastic facilities for yourself, we are happy to show you around. Simply call or email us today for more information and an appointment to suit you.
Great care from the staff, I feel at ease about leaving my child there! Good detailed feedback at the end of the day.
He's well socialised, regularly comes out with things that surprises us ie all of sudden recites days of the week, he has learnt how to share through encouragement not harsh discipline.
They helped with stages that can be difficult like removing dummy/potty training. In general he is just a confident happy boy which I truly believe the team have played a big part in.
Definitely the best thing I did sending my Son to Busy Bees - Maxâ€™s Mum.
Throughout our children have been well cared for, developed and most importantly happy. Thank you to everyone - The Morleyâ€™s
