Welcome to our nursery...

A full nursery refurbishment will begin at Chesterfield Barlborough on Wednesday 11th September. The refurbishment is due for completion in early October. 

At Busy Bees Chesterfield Barlborough Day Nursery and Preschool we absolutely love to play, create and educate together.

We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Busy Bees Chesterfield Barlborough is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.

Homely Nursery with a community feel in Barlborough

Our modern, purpose-built day nursery and preschool is perfectly positioned for the Barlborough Links housing estates and surrounding neighbourhoods. Though many of our parents choose us for our lovely warm, community feel we do attract a number of commuting parents – largely down to our close proximity to the A619, M1 motorway and other major road networks. We are moments away from junction 30 of the M1 for travel to Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham and beyond.

Our expert and passionate team cares for children aged 12 weeks up to the age of 5, in rooms specifically designed to provide tailored, age and stage-appropriate activities and experiences.

An Individual Approach to learning

Our qualified staff here at Busy Bees Chesterfield Barlborough take an individual approach to each and every child, monitoring their progress and development in line with the EYFS statutory framework. A combination of child-led play and structured learning helps the expert childcare team to maximise the potential of every child.

The team at Busy Bees Chesterfield Barlborough prides itself on delivering a friendly and homely environment for our babies, toddlers and preschool children – helping children to settle quickly and parents to relax

Maximising Learning through Outdoor Play

Here at Busy Bees Chesterfield Barlborough we’re particularly proud of our lovely open garden where children of all ages can explore and play. We take a keen interest in nature and use outdoor play to introduce subjects like the weather and seasons. There are many benefits to learning outside of the classroom including development of healthy and active lifestyles by offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being.

Our preschool children tend to move on to nearby schools including Barlborough Primary School, Renishaw Primary School, Woodthorpe Primary School, Mastin Moor and Norbriggs Primary School, Mastin Moor.
