Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees at Glenalmond is a nursery set in a beautiful original building set on the outskirts of St Albans near to the town. We are in easy distance of the M25 and M1 and have our own car park. The nursery has a total of 8 children’s base rooms across three floors and is divided into different age ranges. The bottom floor caters for children aged between 3mths and 2 and a half. The first floor then ranges from 2- 3 and half, followed by our Pre-school 1 and Pre-school 2 for over 3’s.
We have a wide range of incentives for all ages some of which are; Busy Babies, Wake and Shake, Imagination station and and our Mamas and Papas baby room. The Mamas and Papas room and Busy Babies are focused on children under the age of 1, supporting babies with their development but also offering available space and support to outside agencies for both during and after pregnancy.
We have a large garden area and nature trail outside and a soft play and sensory room inside. We also offer additional extra curriculum activities such as Tiny Ballerina, Click IT, Tiny Mites, Mini Mites, Drama Mites and French.
As well as our childcare based team we also have a dedicated support team, consisting of a chef and kitchen assistant who prepares fresh, healthy and tasty meals for all our children. We are dedicated to making transitions as easy as possible so allergies or culturally based preferences will be catered for.
Due to the capacity of the nursery we have a large dedicated staff team, whose main priority is to provide the highest possible level of care to children. We provide a safe, secure, fun and happy environment for children to promote their talents, skills and development.
Our staff team largely consist of qualified level 3’s and we have staff who are currently training towards this and a level 4. All staff have been trained in safeguarding and first aid.
We also have a great Parent partnership group who support the nursery. If you wish to gain further information or book in to have a look at the nursery, please do not hesitate to contact us.

What our customers say…
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Busy Bees for the excellent care which both our children have received.
My 3 year old twins have been attending Glenalmond as normal through lockdown as I'm a nurse. They've been amazing. You've all been so kind, supportive, flexible, accommodating and professional.
