"Our experience with Busy Bees (Dundee) has been wonderful. From our initial meeting with the manger and then the ladies in the room, we immediately felt that our child would be kept safe, be genuinely cared for, and taught many new skills in a fun and happy environment. Our child loves the staff and runs in happy each morning he attends. MW."
