The Magic Tower nursery is one of Hampshire’s best-loved day nurseries situated less than 10 minutes drive from Andover. We are delighted to welcome this outstanding Andover nursery, to be known as Busy Bees Andover, to our ever-growing Busy Bees family.
Located in Weyhill, the nursery is based in a beautifully restored former Victorian primary school and has easy access to both Andover and the surrounding villages. Boasting two bright and airy classrooms, our nursery is well-equipped with fun and stimulating resources offering plenty of opportunities for the children to develop both mentally and physically.
