Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees in Ashford provides GOOD childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2014). Busy Bees Nursery in Ashford is a 86 place purpose built day nursery on one level.
Our Nursery is ideally placed for journeys into and around Ashford. We have direct access to the M20 and are situated between the routes for Faversham and Canterbury.
There are two bus routes which serve the local area which run often and are within walking distance of the nursery.
We have 4 base rooms in the nursery all of which are open and airy with age appropriate equipment and activities and children’s art work displayed in each room.
Each room has access to our beautiful garden which has been recently refurbished, in the garden we have 2 large sand pits, balance beams and a wooden house to play in.
We pride ourselves on how well “free flow” runs in our nursery with the children being able to move from inside to outside as they wish still being able to participate in activities.
We have home cooked fresh food cooked on site daily by our level 3 qualified chef Sarah-Louise.
At Ashford we have excellent communication with our parents including our Parent Partnership Group which is a group of parents who meet with the Management team 4 times a year, the group is free to join by any parent; we also have parent’s evenings twice a year.
We have a strong Key person system in place with each child forming close and comforting bonds with their key children and completing fun activities for them to explore, they also complete personal Learning Journals for each child they care for.
We have hard working staff who our mainly qualified to a level 3 or above, we currently have 4 members of staff working towards their level 3’s and our training in house with our Busy Bees training team.
Ashford operate an open door policy and welcome feedback and input.
