Why You Will Love Our Nursery

Busy Bees in Colchester provides GOOD childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2013)

Busy Bees Colchester is a children’s day nursery situated on the business park with First Strokes and Stanway Garden Centre. We provide quality child care for children between 6 weeks and five years.

The location enables easy access to the town centre, A12 and local train stations with direct links to London.

Our single storey building has separate self contained base rooms for our children aged 3 months to five years. All base rooms have access to their own gardens. These gardens have been completely re-landscaped this year so that each garden is suitable for the age group using it and it is full of exciting equipment for the children.

Our staff team are highly qualified and dedicated to delivering the highest standard of childcare. Continuous training opportunities are undertaken by all team members.
All meals are healthy and nutritious and prepared on site by our nursery chef. The meals are varied and our menu's go over a 4 week period, all special dietary requirements are catered for. 

We are passionate about offering outstanding care which meets the needs of all parents.
