Our Corby nursery is an impressive purpose built building designed for use as a children’s day care facility. It is situated close to the town on Oakley Vale and is a 5 minute car ride from the train station and also on the rail and local bus routes.
We have a strong consistent staff team here at Corby who are extremely passionate about what they do. 95% of the staff have a level three qualification or above. We provide lots of on-going training to support and develop out staff and to keep up to date with current legislation further to ensure we are giving the best possible start for all children in our care.
We have 2 members of staff at the nursery who will be starting their degree in early years and will use their knowledge gained from this in their practice.
As a team we are passionate about providing stimulating learning opportunities, each child's learning journal shows their current interests and achievements with photos and observations which promote the developmental stages and interest of each individual child
The nursery has 3 core rooms namely the baby unit (0-2 years) with a dedicate milk kitchen, sleeping area and separate nappy changing room. Our Toddler unit (2-3 years) with its own nappy change room and bathroom and finally our pre-school unit (3-5) with its own bathroom.
Each room is equipped with a wide selection of age appropriate resources, toys and learning materials. Rooms have easy access to our garden and the pre-school room can enjoy free flow thus encouraging their independence.
We offer a large newly transformed nursery garden with a separate area for the under 3’s. There are different areas for the children to explore and expand their learning such as a builders imaginative play area, 2 sand pits one shaded from the sun, a water pump, outdoor cosy area and a variety of different plants. There is also a raised gazebo area allowing all children access to shade and to interact with younger/older children under supervised conditions.
Why not come along and have a look at what we have to offer.
We promote inclusive practice and encourage children to be independent and make choices of their own.
Lucy enjoys everyday at nursery due to the friendly staff and fun activities she does daily - Rosemary - Mum to Lucy
Thank you so much to the first steps room for teaching Kai new words, sounds and signs. He is growing up to be a lovely little boy and I only have the staff at Busy Bees to thank for this - Leanne mummy to Kai
Busy Bees Nursery is a fun and safe environment. All the staff are really friendly, welcoming and care for the children very well. There is always a reassuring cuddle waiting.
The twins have settled so well, the staff are great and I feel happy and comfortable leaving the children in their care. They have also been fantastic with supporting potty training. Thank you BB - Mum to twins Chloe and Finlay
I am Sarah and I have been working for Busy Bees since i qualified in March 2002. I hold a Diploma in Child Care and Education, my first aid at work certificate and also food hygiene level 2. Since starting as a nursery nurse I have progressed through the company and in February 2012 I gained promotion to assistant manager at the Corby nursery. In May 2015 i became Acting Manager. I find my role very rewarding and can honestly say each day is never the same.
I am passionate about working in childcare as every day brings you new challenges and joy, you see the children learn and practice new skills though fun activities. We enjoy building positive relationships with the parents and children and always like to get everyone involved in events and activities
"I am very pleased to be part of the parent partnership group and as i have 2 children of different ages who attend the nursery i have been through all the different transitions. Tyler will be starting school in September so this will be another mile stone we will be going through with him and the nursery and i am looking forward to doing it all again with Tate.If you have any questions or would just like a chat please feel free to contact me."
"i am pleased to be part of the parent partnership group here at Corby. As a full time working parent i understand the emotions of leaving your child(ren) whilst having to go to work. I hope that should you need to talk to someone who has been there, i can help you feel more at ease. My little boy will soon be approaching 2 and will then be moving to the toddler room, and being introduced to potty training. Should you need support in any areas please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards Jody"
"Being in the parent and partnership group is an honour and I have lots of ideas and experience in leaving my little one at nursery. I have recently been through the potty training procedure and would be happy to help and give advice if you would like to introduce this into your child's routine. I would be happy to hear from parents if you have any questions ideas or if you just need support. Thank you Leanne"
