Busy Bees in Bedford Elstow are a purpose-built nursery for children ages 3 months-5 years, situated within quiet surroundings in Progress Park, Elstow, alongside the Park and Ride. We are easily accessible from the A6 and the A421. We have a large private car park to ensure your child can be dropped off safely.
Our beautiful nursery has bright and spacious rooms for all children to play, rest, sleep and eat, all with highly secure outdoor play areas fully equipped with age-appropriate facilities to play and explore. All rooms are carefully furnished to suit the interests and ages of children and are designed to be comfortable 'home from home' environments that provide children with unlimited opportunities to explore and develop.
We provide a friendly and welcoming environment where our children and families feel safe and part of our Busy Bees nursery family. We ensure activities are regularly offered for all the family to enjoy together, such as Mother’s/Fathers Day breakfast, Christmas family fun day, open days and seasonal events.
We are proud to have a happy, motivated and qualified staff team, of which most are qualified to a Level 3 or above. We have our own training department, Busy Bees Training, that support our staff further to develop new skills, acquire new qualifications and always keep up-to-date with the latest legislation, so that you can have the confidence that your child is being cared for by a knowledgeable and committed team.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is the same statutory framework that schools and pre-schools attached to schools follow, so that you can rest assured your child is being provided with fun and exiting learning opportunities with educational benefits.
There is a strong emphasis on practical investigation and active learning through play, both in the play rooms and outdoors, carefully planned to develop children's individual skills, interests and understanding. We promote inclusive practise and encourage children to be independent and make choices.
We keep an updated learning journal for each and every child, to keep a record of all developments, interests and achievements with photos and observations throughout each day. These journals are regularly shared with parents and any at-home activities are also added to reflect their progress.
