"Just wish you could book time off and not have to pay for the time you do not use the facilities especially if it is planned in advance or unforseen circumstances."

"Both my children are at Busy Bees Kings Reach, from day 1 the team made me feel comfortable and put my mind at ease that my little ones would have fun, be cared for and well looked after. They have delivered every word of that and I am incredibly sad that my little boy leaves them in September to go to school. My son has made wonderful relationships with his key teacher and my daughter who is very young is doing just the same. Well done Busy Bees for being a truly awesome team!"
