Busy Bees in Chelmsford provides OUTSTANDING childcare as reported by Ofsted 2014.
Our nursery has been designed with children in mind; from the single storey construction and separate self-contained base rooms, through to the large, spacious and fully enclosed garden which has just been recently refurbished; the nursery now covers all the areas of learning and is well loved by all the children. Every safety aspect has been considered. Our nursery is located in the heart of the community in Central Chelmsford towards the back of Central Park, in a quiet residential area. We are approximately 5 minutes from the town centre and approximately 10 minutes from the train station.
We received a third consecutive ‘Outstanding’ rating following our latest Ofsted inspection in March 2014. Less than 10% of early year’s settings in the UK hold this rating, and we are proud to have received this result for a third successive time. We are extremely dedicated about what we do. Our dedicated staff are all qualified to level 3 or above or are working towards their qualifications. We take full advantage of the training courses provided through Busy Bees and access support provided through our individual teams at Head Office.
We ensure that your children have an enjoyable time while at nursery and that their needs and interests are met through exciting activities and play opportunities. The children take part in a range of unique Busy Bees learning enhancement which include, Shake and Write, Wake and Shake, Busy Babies, Our Imagination Station, Cooking With Me, Talk Time Baskets, Nurturing Maths and Babble to Chatter.
Our nursery chef, Barrie and assistant chef, Andrew are committed to providing exceptional, nutritious and healthy meals for the children. The 3 week rolling menus offer a varied range of foods and any dietary requirements can be catered for by our dedicated Chefs.
We have excellent links within the community including children’s centres, primary schools, health visitors, colleges and the early years team at Essex County Council. We provide a Parent Partnership Group which allows us to work in partnership with our parents listening to their views and making any necessary changes/improvements.
We are always moving forward opening up new doors and doing new things to ensure we continue to provide excellent childcare. We would love for you to visit our nursery and experience our wonderful setting, meet the team and learn more about everything we have to offer you and your child. We hope to welcome you soon!
The staff at Busy Bees have from day one (and every day since) been nothing but exemplary. I feel like Jackson and myself have a great relationship with his key worker and also the other team members - Amanda Scruby
Attending the nursery has helped my child to develop good social skills with other children & adults. Attending Busy Bees has improved my child's behaviour, built confidence & encouraged creativity
Because well trained staff is providing fantastic care for my child, I can go to work and not have to worry as I know my child is in good care and I can focus on my job.
I believe that Busy Bees provides exceptional childcare & that pre school provides a great platform for their transition into school. I love the new Academy and the benefits it brings to the children. - Lucy Whitlock
Friendly staff, excellent facilities. The fact that we will be sending our second child there with no hesitation says it all. - Chris Morgan
