Welcome to our nursery...

Busy Bees Burton  is a warm welcoming nursery, with a dedicated  and passionate staff team. It is a purpose built nursery accessed only by a secure key fob system.

Being situated just off the A38, on the Centrum 100 Retail and Business Park, and close to local amenities means we are in a great location for parents who live close by, or travel past.

The nursery has 3 spacious rooms for children aged 3 months to 5 years. The rooms are exciting and stimulating and offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment, to enable them to learn the skills they need to develop into confident, happy children. Each room has access to their own outdoor play area which offers the children the opportunities to learn about the environment around them. The children enjoy planting and nurturing flowers and vegetables. The children are then able to pick the vegetables they have grown and enjoy them for their lunch/tea.

Our long established staff team have a range of qualifications and experience which helps us in providing a high quality service for children and their families. Qualifications range from level 2 in Childcare to Level 6 BA Honours. All staff members attend regular training to aid their knowledge and skills within the nursery. Each member of staff is passionate about their role and builds strong relationships with their key children and their families in order to help each child to reach their full potential. We hold regular parents evenings where parents are able to speak to their child’s key person to see how their child is developing.

Our Catering Team is committed to providing exceptional, nutritious and healthy meals for the children. The nursery has achieved the highest rating of 5 out of 5 stars from the Food Standards Agency. The 3 week rolling menus offer a varied range of foods and are nutritionally complied to meet growing children’s needs, in addition any dietary requirements can be catered for by our dedicated catering team.

The nursery has a parent partnership group who are available via email; they are able to offer support and advice to new parents and also existing parents.

There are several additional activities for the children in nursery to experience, for example:
Burton Albion Football Academy sessions for the 2-5yr olds , Satin Slippers Ballet Lessons 2-5yr olds – Extra charges do apply

The knowledge and expertise of the staff team at Burton is complemented by assistance from the National Support Centre with dedicated departments such as Health and Safety, Catering, Estates and an EYFS Childcare Team.

We would love to welcome you into our nursery family. If you would like to book to come and have a look around, please call Cathy on 01283 535 000. Alternatively feel free to pop in at any time.
