Busy Bees children’s nursery in Oakwood is a large purpose built, two storey nursery, close to the A52 and Derby City Centre, with regular bus links directly opposite the nursery.
We are delighted to have been awarded a GOOD outcome from our latest Ofsted inspection.
We provide a variety of stimulating activities for the children to enjoy including Wake and Shake which encourages the children to dance and sing to get themselves energised for the day ahead. We also have a unique area in our baby room called 'Busy Babies' for our 0-2’s which creates a stimulating and calming environment where the babies are able to have close contact with their individual key person.
Whilst at nursery the children enjoy delicious home cooked meals which are nutritionally balanced and healthy. We have a seasonal three weekly rolling menu which takes advantage of fresh, seasonal produce and allows the children to experience a wide variety of tastes and flavours. We are also able to cater for children who have any allergies or dietary requirements.
The long serving staff team have a large range of qualifications which includes, NVQ 2 & 3 and Foundation Degree in Early Years and childhood studies. The staff are always very keen to attend different training courses both within Busy Bees and with the local authority. The staff team ensure that they build close relationships with their key children and their parents/carers, giving daily feedback to keep parents informed of their child’s day. Throughout the year the staff will also complete progress reports for each individual child and twice a year the nursery holds parent evenings.
