Absolutely over the moon with the nursery. Roman has moved his time at the nursery, I know he will be very sad to leave for big school. Your staff have all been amazing.

It is with great sadness that the Clayton family will be saying goodbye to Busy Bees. Ruby has thrived in the nursery environment and truly adores every moment of her time there. We would also like to acknowledge the outstanding leadership of Caroline and thank her team for their incessant hard work
