Busy Bees Kids 1st Gosforth puts the family at the heart of the nursery. We are a purpose-built nursery all on one level with 7 beautiful, well-resourced, inviting childcare rooms all with access to an alluring, garden ready for the children to explore.

Our pre-school focuses on school readiness. Each child has a special diary which they share between nursery and home to make sure communication links are strong to ensure your child will transition into school with the self-esteem and confidence skills in addition to self-help and social interaction, alongside the other areas of development that they need.

We have a dedicated full-time housekeeper, chef, and assistant chef. Nutritional, fresh, food is prepared daily accredited by NHS Sure Start, we can cater for any child's dietary needs. 

Our aim is to give your child lots of experiences during their time at nursery, to help them be the best they can be and to provide them with the best start in life.

We cannot wait to welcome you to the Busy Bees family!
