Your child's best start in life

A child's early years are critical. Nobody knows that better than us, and nobody does more to make them count. With our specially designed nurseries, child-centred approach, and tailored care, we give every single Busy Bees child the very best start in life.

That's how we've become the UK's leading childcare provider. Today, Busy Bees runs 378 exceptional nurseries spread right across the UK and Ireland - and more overseas. Whichever you choose, you'll find the rich learning opportunities and warm, nurturing environments that parents and children love.

Here's what makes Busy Bees so special

Why choose Busy Bees

Every time you drop off your child at one of our nurseries, you trust us to take care of their safety, health, and happiness. We take that really seriously, and always have.

You'll spot Safety Buzz, our safety mascot, all around our nurseries, where he shows children how to look after themselves and others. We help children stay safe outside of nursery too; our unique Safety With Buzz programme is packed with activities and resources for parents and carers that teach children to understand risks and make safe decisions.

Safety Buzz

During the Covid-19 pandemic, health and safety has felt more important than ever. We're working with our nurseries all over the globe to share and learn together, so that we can always protect the families in our care.

It's not always easy to cover the costs of childcare, so we're really pleased to offer government funding options for children in England, Scotland and Wales - including 30 hours funded childcare.
