"Adeena has been attending Nursery since 2021 January and has marked a year now. She has shown exceptional growth with her development from learning how to speak to putting sentences together at over 24 months. She is able to express herself and has learnt many things whilst being at nursery for instance she has learned how to get changed in to her clothes. This was really lovely to see and we understand that this is something she learnt during her hours at the nursery. The busy bees team has made such a great and positive impact on both Adeena and her parents lives, where we are confident that Adeena adapting very well. As parents we feel as though busy bees is an exceptional nursery and put effort in to children. Therefore we always recommend busy bees to our friends and family when they’re searching for a nursery. Thank you to the busy bees team for your hard work! :) Nasima K"
