"We have had a wonderful experience with sending our little one to Busy Bees nursery the staff at Haling Park always go that extra mile and it is so warming. We have seen our little one develop over the year that she has attended and it is so promising. Busy bees provides and exceptional atmosphere which truely allows for nourishing and setting the foundations for life long learning. We would however like more photo updates and clear communication from the staff about offers they have which we can use in terms of loyalty schemes and extra sessions. Other than that we cannot fault the nursery staff they are brilliant in what they do and really care for the little ones. Communication around assessments would be excellent. We would love to be able to pick up our little one from their allocated room once safe to do so, we have only know drop off and collection at the door so this would be nice to have slowly eased in when safe to do so. Overall we have had a wonderful experience and our little one loves attending. Thank you to all the wonderfully dedicated teachers and staff at Haling Park you are doing a super job. Thank you."
