Busy Bees in Bishops Stortford is an 80 place single storey nursery with a security entry system located in the quiet community of St Michael’s Mead. The nursery is split into 6 base rooms with dedicated nappy changing rooms, toilets and kitchen areas in each room. The nursery is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are divided into each age group.
Our latest Ofsted inspection was in February and we were graded ‘Good’, and we also hold a Food Hygiene rating of 5 by the Food Standards Agency.
We have a long standing friendly staff team with many staff having been with us for over 5 years who are all either qualified to Level 3 or working towards their qualification. All staff are also trained in Child Protection and the majority hold 1st Aid and Food Hygiene certificates. The staff at our nursery are continually developing their knowledge by attending the various training courses run by both the local authority and Busy Bees training department.
We have a highly qualified and experienced chef who creates wonderful, nutritionally balanced meals using fresh ingredients for which we have earned the Food for Life Silver Award by the Soil Association.
Upon starting at Busy Bees your child would have a dedicated Key Person who would be responsible for their Learning Journal which tracks learning and development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. We also hold parents evenings twice a year which provide parents with the opportunity to talk with the Key Person about their child’s progress.
We would love for you to experience for yourself all the lovely things our nursery has to offer so please get in touch to make an appointment and we would be delighted to show you around.
