Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees at Bernard Street provides Good childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2017)
Busy Bees at Bernard Street is a purpose built, single-storey nursery with a well-designed layout. We are Ofsted registered and have 61 children here on a daily basis, ranging from 3 months to five years. We have 3 large base rooms: Baby Bees 3 months to 2 years, Honeybees (toddlers) 2 years to 3 years and Busy Bees (pre-school) 3-5 years. The nursery has a good-sized garden which includes 3 separate areas for the children to play.
The nursery is located 15 minutes’ walk from St Albans Train station, and 10 minutes’ drive from A1, M1 and M25. We also have a small car park for the convenience of drop off and pick up times. We also have a buggy shed where parents can leave buggies, scooters etc to make drop off and pick up easier.
The staff team are passionate about the delivery of a range of indoor and outdoor activities that promote the developmental stages and interests of each individual child. We offer the children the choice to play indoors or outdoors by promoting free flow throughout the nursery.
Rose our nursery chef provides all the children with two fresh, healthy and nutritious meals a day, which are prepared on site. The children also get breakfast, a snack in the morning and a snack in the PM which they enjoy with fresh milk everyday which is delivered from the milkman. The staff are consistently trained in various aspects of childcare as Busy Bees offer their own in-house training to staff, and we are also able to access training through the local authority.
