Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees in Bicester is a large, purpose built nursery situated on Bure Park, within easy walking distance of a bus route, the Town Centre and both Bicester North and Bicester Village train stations. The M40 motorway, the A41 and A34 main routes are just a stones throw away, making commuting to work easy to manage.
The nursery aims to provide a warm and friendly, homely atmosphere for all the children, and we pride ourselves on having an outstanding partnership with our parents. We have built up good links within the local community and work closely with local schools, health visitors and other children’s professionals in the area.
The children are provided with many learning opportunities throughout all the age groups, experienced staff plan activities for their individual key children making sure that their needs and interests are met and developed.
The rooms are bright and stimulating with a wide range of resources available, each age group has access to the garden area where the children have opportunities to explore the outside environment.
Our Chef provides the children with delicious freshly made meals which are nutritionally balanced and healthy. We have a three week rolling menu which takes advantage of local, seasonal produce and encourages our children to experience a wide variety of tastes. We are able to cater for children with allergies and/or any dietary requirements. We always provide a vegetarian option to meat dishes and a weaning menu for the younger babies.
The nursery has a Parent Partnership Group if you would like to ask any questions or advice (contact details can be found via the nursery). The group consists of parents whose children already attend the nursery and are happy to give support when you are leaving your child for the first time or even when making transition from room to room. Please feel free to use this service if you have any questions or would like some feedback on the nursery.
