“I can’t believe that it was 40 years ago that we started our first nursery, and it just seems as though it was yesterday”

– Marg Randles, Co-Founder.

To celebrate our incredible 40-year milestone, our Co-Founder Marg Randles nostalgically explores the heritage of the brand. She recollects how the story of Busy Bees came to be, and proudly discusses how the brand has grown and developed since opening the doors of the first nursery in Lichfield in 1984.

Thanks to the initiative of Marg and the fellow founders of Busy Bees, in opening their own nursery, thousands of children have been positively impacted on a worldwide scale. 

As a result of their fantastic actions, there has been enormous demand for the incredible service Busy Bees provides, allowing us to grow from one nursery to nearly 1,000 across 10 countries around the world. 

In a celebratory video, we share thoughts and insights from some of our amazing staff, who describe their journey, experience, and continued passion for the Busy Bees brand, and the children in our care.

Jessica Sandall, an Area Director proudly states: “The future for Busy Bees is bright”, which reflects exactly what we want for every child who is welcomed into the Busy Bees family. 

The passion and drive to keep children at the heart of everything we do is something that has gone unchanged for the 40 years Busy Bees has been operating as a leading childcare provider.

“It’s about their safety, their education, their care, it’s about allowing every child to reach their full potential, to provide opportunities that will make them want to learn”

- Marg Randles.

At Busy Bees, we understand that we are being given the responsibility of the most precious thing a parent has – their child. It’s for this reason that the value of parent partnership is vital and is something we are passionate about nurturing.

As we have expanded across the globe, we've been able to share best practice from other countries, learning from our global territories so that the quality of our education is ever-improving – and allowing even more children to become part of the Busy Bees family. 

With thought and care packed into every single day at our nurseries, we’ve got no doubt that the children in our care will continue to learn, develop, and thrive.

“We want to reaffirm our commitment to delivering high-quality childcare and great education to our children”

– Marg Randles.
