I would recommend Busy Bees at Braintree because the staff are excellent. The setting is secure and safe. There are lotâ€™s of things for them to do and an excellent outdoor space.
My daughter has grown up at Busy Bees and has learnt many things from social interaction, to learning numbers, letters, colours, shapes and even talking.
The staff are brilliant, both with the children and with the parents. All are approachable and friendly which makes it so easy for parents and we know our kids are happy and well looked after.
