Welcome to our nursery…
Busy Bees at Basingstoke is a children’s day nursery situated in the grounds of Basingstoke North Hampshire Hospital. We provide quality child care for children aged from two months to five years.
The nursery provides 5 spacious rooms for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years and all rooms contain age appropriate equipment to provide a range of learning opportunities for all age groups encouraging them to explore, investigate and learn. The rooms are bright and spacious, and each room has their individual key persons who provide a safe and stimulating environment. The key persons follow the EYFS creating Learning Journals for each child to ensure their individual needs are being met and their development is being tracked.
The children also enjoy free flowing into our outdoor garden area, all of which are age appropriate. Our outdoor garden provide resources for all age groups giving the children an opportunity to explore outdoors as well as indoors.
Our team at Basingstoke Hospital are extremely passionate and committed to what they do and cherish their partnership with the children and parents. Our staff thrive to provide a high quality service to ensure that our parents and children are comfortable and confident in our setting. Our longest serving member of the team is Elaine Pattison who started here in 1999 . Our staff are either level 3 qualified or currently working towards their Level 3 in Childcare. Some of our senior team also hold Bachelors Degrees and Foundation degree’s in Early Years. All our staff take full advantage of the training that is provided by Busy Bees and all our senior team hold their First Aid at work certificate as well as the rest of team holding Paediatric First Aid certificates.
