"My daughter has been attending for just over a year now. Initially busy bees was wonderful! However over the past 6-8 weeks I feel it has gone down hill, often closed at short notice or having to send children home half way through the day due to lack of staff to meet ratios. They constantly seem to be short staffed, and my child’s Key person has changed between 3 different people since Christmas. They also seem to be having issues sourcing food for the children so are often having to go off menu and feed them whatever odd assortment can be sourced. "
