Here, at Busy Bees Carshalton Beeches, we can help your child to reach their potential during those important early years. 

Based in a spacious but welcoming building in a quiet, residential spot, our centre provides excellent quality childcare for babies, toddlers and preschool-age children. We know children develop at different paces, so we have separate rooms for each age group. It allows the children to learn, explore and have fun with others at a similar stage in their development journey. 

All of our Carshalton day nursery's childcare rooms are equipped with toys and learning activities to keep little ones happy and engaged. From cosy reading corners to role-play kitchens to motor sensory puzzles - there's something for every child. We're lucky enough to have an interactive whiteboard too, which provides fantastic learning opportunities. 

We know how important it is for kids to get outside, so the fun isn't just kept indoors. Our large outdoor space allows the children to learn about taking safe risks under adult supervision. And it also lets them enjoy exploration in the fresh air. 

When you enrol your child with us, they'll be assigned their own keyworker - who'll update you on any milestones your little one is reaching. Our staff follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, to ensure your child gets the preparation they need for the step up to primary school. 

Come and visit our preschool in Carshalton for yourself. Book a visit today - we can't wait to welcome you to the Busy Bees family!

"We’ve had a child at Busy Bees for almost 6 years. Our older one left a couple of years ago but has good memories of his time there. Staff are great with the children, and management has been flexible and helpful through what I’m sure has not been an easy year for the nursery."
