Why You Will Love Our Nursery

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.

Parent Partnership Group

Parent Representatives for Busy Bees at Corby


Emma Parish

Hi my name is Emma and i am mummy to 4 year old Tyler and 16 month old Tate. Tyler has attend Busy Bees nursery Corby since he was 18 months old as we relocated to the area from Surrey. i was very nervous and anxious about leaving him in a different environment but all the staff made me and Tyler feel very welcome. Tate started the nursery at 8 months old and as he was very clingy to me attending nursery has really helped him become more social and settled.

"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."

Leanne Rodgers

My names Leanne and i am the parent of a 2 year old little boy who attends full time in the toddler room. Kai has attended nursery since he was 8 months old and has progressed a lot since starting and has become a very confident, sociable and content little man.

"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"
