Why You Will Love Our Nursery

Busy Bees at Bristol Barrs Court is a children’s day nursery situated close to the A4174 ring road. We open 7.30-6.30pm to support our busy parents. The Nursery is easily found and is situated next to ASDA Longwell Green. We have ample parking that provides a safe area for dropping off and collecting your children.

The Nursery is purpose built with six warm nurturing rooms for Under 2’s, including a calm sensory room, rooms to explore paint, sand, water and be creative!! We have two large rooms each for 2-3’s and 3-5’s with separate garden areas to enjoy different activities. We provide quality childcare for children aged between six weeks and five years and provide initiatives such as Busy Babies and Wake and Shake. Busy Babies is designed exclusively to enhance and develop babies’ sense, using everyday objects in high contrasting tones to encourage babies to reach and explore. Wake and Shake is a daily activity that is not only fun, but enhances child development too!

Music with Mummy and Jolly Babies also join us on a Monday morning.

We are very proud of our 5 star food standards rating, offering breakfast as the first meal of the day, then nutritional snacks, followed by a two course freshly cooked main meal and a high tea. These are all included at no extra charge and are freshly prepared by our in house qualified cook.

"JL Busy Bees is a really lovely Nursery with a friendly atmosphere. Through both of my children I have had experience of each room and dealt with most of the staff who are really approachable and friendly. There are a vast variety of activities carried out whether it's something creative like painting or baking or themed days and events. I would thoroughly recommend the Nursery and think they have played a massive part in my children's development which I am extremely grateful for."
