Welcome to our nursery…
Busy Bees Blaydon is a children’s day nursery situated on the edge of a quiet beauty spot, Blaydon Nature Reserve, which is on the outskirts of the town. The nursery is only a 5-minute walk to the local shopping centre and bus station, NHS and leisure centres and a 2-minutes drive from the A1 and A694. The nursery is entered through a secure, pin coded intercom system with CCTV covering the nursery grounds.
The nursery has a fully qualified, long standing staff team who develop strong relationships with their key children and parents, giving daily feedback to keep parents informed of their child’s progress. The nursery holds parents’ evening twice a year, and also holds fundraising events to raise money for charity which involves the whole community.
Our nursery Chef, Brenda and chef assistant Stacey are committed to providing nutritious and healthy meals for the children, using fresh ingredients which are locally sourced. The nursery has achieved the highest possible rating for Food Hygiene being awarded 5 out of 5 stars by Gateshead Council. The nursery menus offer a varied range of foods and any dietary requirements can be catered for by our experienced catering team.
We have an open-door policy for parents to ensure you are kept informed about all aspects of the nursery. We always welcome visits and regular contact with you and your family. Parents' evenings are held to allow you the opportunity to speak with your child’s key person about their current progress at nursery.
