Why You Will Love Our Nursery

Busy Bees in Bradley Stoke is a purpose built two storey nursery and is split into four separate rooms for each age group; babies, 1-2’s, 2-3’s and Pre-school. Every room has its own garden which the children have free flow access to throughout the day. We have also recently had a lovely refurbishment so all our rooms are newly decorated with new resources.

Our nursery is easily accessible from the M5, M4 interchange and the M32. There are also buses running past very frequently.

Our team are very passionate about childcare and making children’s learning as fun as possible. The majority of our staff are qualified to level 3; with some working towards their qualifications. We work towards the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum; which means planning for each child’s individual needs and interests through weekly observations.

We offer a range of initiatives for your child to take part in such as; Wake and Shake, Cooking with Me, Kindermusik, Stretch and Grow and the Golden Mile. Our baby room has an initiative called Busy Babies which is aimed at providing natural resources for your child and colours to stimulate their brain development.

 

Come and join in the fun at our stay and play sessions every Tuesday morning from 9.30am-11am!

We are proud to support:
