Looking for excellent quality childcare in Leicestershire? Busy Bees Carlton Park in Narborough is a wonderful place for your child to begin their adventure.

Large and modern, our day nursery features welcoming rooms finished in soft colours to create a calming atmosphere. Each room is split out by age range, so children can be around those at a similar stage in their development. It also gives them time and space to learn at their own pace.

For us, learning while having fun is hugely important for children. Babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers all have access to a range of toys designed to help them learn about the world around them. There's something for all little ones too - whether it's Toddler's Quiet Area for children who love to read or the creative space where kids can let their imaginations run wild.

We also encourage the kids to be active in the fresh air and explore the outdoors. With our secure outdoor space, there are plenty of opportunities for them to have fun with friends and challenge themselves by taking safe risks in a supervised environment. There are trikes, bikes, or scooters for them to race around on, comfortable benches or seating to rest little legs, and lots more.

The team is always looking to keep the children engaged and involved through exciting and stimulating activities. Want to keep up to date with how your child is getting on at our day nursery in Narborough? Our ParentZone smartphone app is where we keep you informed on what your little one has been learning and how they're getting on.

Does your child have a specific dietary requirement or suffer from allergies? Don't worry - our team will account for any needs when preparing food and drink. Your Centre Director will be more than happy to discuss any dietary requirements or your child's diet in general.
