Both our boys have enjoyed their time at Busy Bees and we feel they have always been well looked after - Michelle Evans.
A tour of the nursery was provided by the nursery manager as the setting has recently undergone extensive refurbishment. The nursery has a calm, nurturing feel using neutral colours for furnishings, flooring, decor and displays. Each room has been restocked with new resources which are well organised into areas of continuous provision. Parental involvement is strong. The Early Assessment Record meeting provides parents the opportunity to inform baseline assessments of their children. Home observation books have been particularly effective in involving parents in assessments of children's learning. Information was also gathered about children's transition to school and a range of effective strategies used by the nursery were shared. The nursery feeds into a number of schools in the local area and different approaches by schools were discussed. The nursery completes a 'Seamless Transitions' booklet which includes the child, parent and setting voice. It provides comprehensive information to a receiving setting/school about the individual child, their strengths, interests and levels of wellbeing and involvement. Children are well supported to manage their transition to school. - Roise Hoyle

Staff are loving and caring, I would recommend the Nursery to others - Julie Lee
I can honestly say much of this is down to the care and attention he received from the excellent staff at Busy Bees. - Joseph Wilshaw
