Busy Bees Brompton is nestled in a peaceful location within a quiet housing estate which caters for Military Parents. Our one-storey building was previously part of the Barracks but more recently converted into a nursery.

Our 4 spacious, bright, inviting base rooms are stimulating and engaging for the children to prepare them for their journey to school. Babies especially enjoy the sensory activities in their base-rooms. Each childcare room has their own secure garden area which the children can explore developing their self-esteem and confidence. Our UP library provides children with ample learning opportunities in addition to our home learning bags which will help support children and parents through bereavement, preparing for school, separation and having a new baby with the nursery staff there to help every step of the way!

Early starts from 7am are available on request.

"The staff are great. The rooms are great. Kids are generally always happy going in and coming out. No issues in that way. The only major issues is the cost. It’s roughly my whole salary to send my two kids to nursery. Such a shame "
