Busy Bees in Canterbury provides OUTSTANDING childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2013). Busy Bees at the Riverside Children’s Centre is a single storey, purpose built facility. We are situated within a children's centre that provides support and advice for families with children under five.
The nursery has a large well equipped outdoor play area for the children to enjoy as an outdoor classroom and physical play area, with lots of shady trees and awnings. The nursery was redecorated in December 2011.
The Nursery is situated close to the City Centre with easy access to both Canterbury East and West train stations and bus routes.
We pride ourselves on providing delicious home cooked food from our nutritionally balanced menu. The menu is written with support from our National Support office and parent involvement so you have the opportunity to let us know what your children enjoy eating at home. The Manager and Assistant Chef both hold a Level 2 Qualification in Nutrition and Food Safety in Catering and the Chef holds a Level 3 in Food Safety in Catering.
We have excellent communication with parents including daily sheets detailing information about your child’s day as well as verbal feedback, learning journals. We have an open door policy and welcome parent feedback and input.
Harrison enjoys nursery now. Was a little scared at first but is now settled, he is familiar with friendly faces now especially Clare. He has started to clap and trying to walk, He eats better as well
Alex really loves nursery and team in buttercups. I really love reading the feedback sheets at the end of the day, it gives me something to chat about at bedtime, creates a diary of his development - Lucy Fason
All the staff know my children, what they like and how best to look after them
Harry appears to be enjoying his time at Busy Bees playing with all the toys and in the garden. I think the blue book is a good idea as it is nice to know what he has been doing in the day /eaten etc - Louise Read
