Welcome to our nursery...

It's official...

Busy Bees in Colchester provides OUTSTANDING childcare as reported by OFSTED 2020.

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 predominately Level 3 and 4"

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