Centre of Excellance 2017

After an unannounced visit Stowmarket Busy Bees have been awarded a centre of excellence status. 

We received this wonderful email from Julie Boulton our Divisional Director. 

Dear Amy

I am thrilled and delighted to announce that you have been awarded the Centre of Excellence status from July 2017 – Congratulations to you all!

This is a result of your Tier 1 score and verified by an unannounced visit from your Regional Director and childcare advisor Alana along with all the testimonials from parents and heads of departments.

Amy you and your team were so welcoming during this unannounced visit.  The nursery looked amazing with all children engaged in some fantastic activities. 

The staff were confident in what  they were doing and demonstrated in depth knowledge of the key children.  Amy you explained that getting COE status has been a long journey which took dedication, passion but most of all it was able to happen because you have a team with a shared vision. 

Your team have been nurtured to be fantastic practitioners under your leadership and I know they will be proud to share in this amazing achievement.

You have worked so hard Amy in the pursuit of excellence and now you have it. Well done we are very proud of you and your team, and we want to thank you for delivering amazing care to all the children attending Stowmarket.

Best wishes


We will receive a wonderful award at the Busy Bees award ceremony to celebrate this wonderful achievement. 

This has also been followed by another fantastic result where we received 94 % in our Quality assessment on Tuesday 12th September. The quality assessment is carried out just like an Ofsted inspection by our childcare advisor Alana.
