Darlington nursery opened its doors in 1996 and has served the local community and beyond to look after and educate children from birth to five.
The nursery was rebranded and fully refurbished in March 2013 and we are very proud to be part of the Busy Bees family.
The children and staff are supported by two members of staff who have gained the Early Years Teacher Status. They use their knowledge of child development to enhance the learning environment so that children achieve to the best of their abilities.
We have many long serving staff, with some staff achieving their fifteen year awards. This shows what a dedicated team we have, who are dedicated to the childcare profession and strive to ensure each child is happy and well cared for.
We have strong links with the local Children’s Centre and work closely with the Health Visitors so that children are supported in their learning so that they are ready for school when the time arrives.

We love Busy Bees, the environment, the staff and everything is of top quality. The staff are very approachable and feel the needs of the child is the most important thing
Even though my baby is still young, I feel she is getting so much more opportunities than I thought shw would be allowed for her age, 100% pleased with my choice at Busy Bees
After four children going through the nursery over the last thirteen years, I have never been more confident in the staff taking care of them. They are fabulous and do anything they can to support
We cannot tell you how much we appreciate everything you have done in looking after our precious little boy. You made everything so easy, and have developed his much needed life skills.
â€œ For a parent who works full time, its wonderful to know my child is safe and happyâ€
