Our Busy Bees Nursery in Colchester Stanway is a stunning purpose built setting with six bright spacious rooms for children aged 0-5 years. Each age range has its own room and garden area filled with state-of-the-art equipment to assist the staff in providing unlimited learning opportunities which the staff then upload onto our online learning journal system in conjunction with Parentzone. Our nursery follows the EYFS statutory framework and we offer unique learning enhancements to develop core skills such as shake and write, we build strong links with the local schools, this makes our Pre-School Academy the perfect environment for children to develop. The nursery team work along side the Busy Bees Childcare team delivering the amazing learning enhancements that they have developed.
All snacks and meals are prepared in line with the Silver Food for Life catering mark by the soil association, on site by our Chef, Shena.
We meet with our Parent Partnership Group three times per year and discuss events for the nursery and fundraising, these parents are a great support for new parents who are getting used to using and settling into a nursery.
We are situated on the London Road Business Park, alongside First Strokes swimming school and Stanway Garden Centre, we are incredibly close to the Marks Tey train station linking straight into London and just off the A12 and A120. There is plenty of parking available making your dropping off and collection easy.
We would love to show you around our beautiful nursery and tell you more about everything that we have to offer you and your child. You can book a visit to see us here.
I chose Busy Bees Stanway because of the layout of the nursery, the rooms are spacious with lots of resources. The children are all very happy and the staff are friendly and welcomed Ruby - Mum to Rugby aged 3

Enrolling our daughter into the Just Learning Nursery has been the best thing we have ever done. The friendly staff and children she plays with have significantly increased her confidence
Since being at pre-school my Daughter has become confident, chatty and gained so much
Having previously used 3 other nurseries on a full/part-time basis, this nursery & the children, staff & other parents is by far the happiest & friendliest and we are very pleased with the service
