Welcome to our nursery...

At Busy Bees East Keswick Day Nursery and Preschool we absolutely love to play, create and educate together.

We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Busy Bees East Keswick is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.

Stunning Modern Countryside Nursery

Perfectly positioned on the A659 and in close proximity to the M1 our stunning Busy Bees East Keswick nursery has fantastic commuter links to York, Leeds and Harrogate and surrounding areas.

Purpose-built with stunning views of the countryside to the front our children can enjoy a spot of sheep gazing and all that nature has to offer.

The nursery opened in 2014 and retains a new, refurbished feel. Spread across two spacious floors our under 2’s enjoy a relative oasis of calm on the ground floor with their own safe and secure indoor and outdoor play areas. On the first floor you’ll discover the slightly more energetic over 2’s and preschool children, with dedicated classrooms for preschool learning.

Set back off a main commuting road, our parents enjoy ample, free parking for convenient drop-offs and pick-ups.

Quality Childcare in a Rural East Keswick

Our highly-skilled and passionate childcare team looks after children from the age of 12 weeks up to the age of 5 and provides an action-packed, fun-filled curriculum designed to meet the physical, emotional and educational needs of each of our key age and stage groups.

You’ll find light, bright, rooms with access to enormous, secure outdoor multi-surface spaces packed full of opportunities for learning through play – vegetable growing, heuristic play area complete with natural resources, wooded nature area, plus a sand pit and mud kitchen.

There’s a dedicated sensory room with soft-lighting, treasure baskets and tactile resources plus preparatory rooms for preschool children embarking on the next stage of their development.

Whatever the age of your child a fun approach to learning is the order of the day, every day. Using a tried and tested mix of creative play and child-led learning, our pledge to you is to maximise the potential of your child.

Home-from-home Day Nursery

Leaving your baby or child for the first time can be overwhelming and the welcoming team at  Busy Bees East Keswick Nursery are skilled in settling children and parents, easing families into the nursery routine as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

The staff are friendly and caring and invest time in growing relationships and partnerships with parents as well as the children they care for. They offer detailed and valuable feedback so that you can understand your child’s development and offer practical advice and tips on things you can do at home to supplement their learning.

School Readiness

Our Early Years professionals in the preschool rooms at Busy Bees East Keswick Nursery work hard to prepare your child for school life ahead. You can expect your preschool child to learn all of the staples of phonics, literacy and writing and elemental mathematics but play will continue to be an important part of their learning journey. We strive to develop happy, confident, independent little people ready to take on the challenge of ‘big school’.

Our preschool head of section has good links with many neighbouring schools and many of our children leave to go onto Collingham Lady Elizabeth’s CE Primary School Wetherby, Bardsey Primary School, Bardsey, Gateways School, Harewood, Leeds and Rose Court Pre-Prep School, Leeds.
