"Louie started here a few months ago, and has settled in extremely well. Natasha and her team have catered to his needs and kept me updated through his process. It was the best move I made switching nurseries and I’m so thankful to Natasha and Beth for everything they’ve helped myself and Louie with. Thankyou so much! "

"The staff are helpful and engaged, and the nursery has a lovely, warm and inviting culture. The setting is well-equipped, with access to a spacious play area outside. Children have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities, including yoga, arts and crafts, songs and story time, some very useful pre-school learning such as learning to recognise numbers and letters through interactive play, lots of physical activity outdoors, etc. The food must be brilliant as well, since I can see on the app that my daughter has seconds of almost everything all the time - I wish it was the same way at home! ;) What I appreciate about BBs most is the cultural inclusion aspect, with children from different cultural backgrounds being celebrated and made feel very welcome. I would recommend the nursery to anyone in this area."

"BusyBees have been great accommodating my my sons extra needs (eczema and allergies) regarding food, creams and his own bed sheets for nap time. He really enjoys it, staff are caring and they do lots of fun activities. The manager Tasha is great and the nursery is well run. I would reccomend!"

"Busy Bees in Bradley Stoke has been our nursery for just over 3 years--we've gone through a fair amount of staff turnover and a lot of management changes, but I can confidently say that the current staff is incredible and I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else! The staff care deeply about the children and building strong relationships with them to improve their language, emotional, and physical skills. The current management of the nursery, led by Natasha, is excellent and committed to communicating clearly and in a timely manner which, as working parent, is invaluable. We are so happy with the nursery and continue to attend here despite having moved 30 minutes away! Would highly recommend sending your child(ren) here, its a lovely place for them to grow."
