Why You Will Love Our Nursery

It's official...

Busy Bees in Colchester provides OUTSTANDING childcare as reported by OFSTED in April 2013.

The nursery in Colchester is a purpose-built nursery with bright, spacious rooms designed specifically for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Each room is filled with exciting, stimulating equipment which is put in place to enhance childrens areas of development. We have two large age specific gardens, 0-2 and 3-5 yrs, with activites and equipment to complement the childrens size, age and development.

Each day is a different day in Colchester nursery, the children will experience activities, teachings and excitement, in a secure happy environment. Each day closes with an in-depth explanation of your child’s day. The team have secure relationships with their key children and parents. The key person will track a child’s development and feed this back to parents when they wish or at regular parent's evenings which are held across all age ranges.

We have many supporting roles within our nursery to help provide for children with additional needs and an exhaustive team at our national support centre to support the manager and team in areas so we are able to provide the best quality environment and childcare possible.


We have a dedicated team, with an expansive range of qualifications, predominantly level 3, a manager with foundation degree and BA Honours in childhood studies and a staff member who is currently working towards this.

The nursery is ideally located with close access to the A12, A120 and the town centre, with good links to main roads.

We also provide Holiday Club facilities for children up to 8 years old in our 'Hive' room and send out club time tables when the exciting time arrives!

Gail and Sue provide freshly cooked meals on the premises and we have a great weaning menu for our smaller babies in nursery.
Meals are all inclusive of price as are nappies and wipes up to the age of 2 years old.

We are proud to support:
