Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees in London ExCeL is a beautiful purpose built nursery all on one level. The nursery has four spacious rooms, one for each age group. Rooms are vibrantly decorated and arranged to offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment. Each room has access to their own well equipped secure outdoor garden where children can choose to free flow inside and out throughout the day.
We take pride in being a large and diverse family with many different cultures and religions.
The team here at ExCeL are passionate about their work and build strong relationships with their key children and families. The Team are very enthusiastic about promoting the unique individuality of each child and supporting their wellbeing and learning. Activities provided for the children are based on your child’s interest and development giving them the opportunity to discover, investigate and explore- gaining new skills as they develop. We at ExCeL provide a fun, stimulating and safe environment in which your child will play, learn and grow.
We have on site catering facilities with a Head Chef and Assistant Chef working together to prepare healthy meals on a daily basis. We do our best to cater for all dietary requirements. We have achieved a Bronze award through the soil Association, which means our menus have been recognised for being seasonal, not containing undesirable food additives, hydrated fats or GM ingredients and that our catering team are well trained.
Busy Bees at London ExCeL have a Parent Partnership Group which meets throughout the year. The aim of the Parent Partnership Group is to promote positive relationships with parents and to create a support network for all parents within the nursery setting. Members of the parent partnership can be contacted through e-mail and are able to offer support and advice to both new and existing parents.
