Why You Will Love Our Nursery

Busy Bees in Chafford Hundred provides GOOD childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2013).

Busy Bees Chafford Hundred is a children's day nursery situated underneath Bannatynes Health Club, just a 5 minute walk to Chafford railway station which is on the main line to London Fenchurch Street.

We are an established nursery and have been open for 15 years. 

We have a great team that have worked together over many years which helps consistency throughout the nursery.

We recently set up our parent partnership group with 5 of our parents, where we have meetings and plan events which involved the whole nursery. This is also a great way of new parents getting a view of the nursery from already established parents.

We have 6 rooms in total in our nursery, we are very fortunate in being able to offer the children free flow into the garden from every room and take full advantage of this.


Our baby room is for our 6 weeks to 1 year old babies/ We initiated the busy baby's incentive earlier this year, we have a black and white area which research has shown is stimulating for the babies with the contrasting colours, where the lilac area is calm and relaxing.


Our 12-18 month old room - A  large room with lots of light and space. We also have a separate garden enabling babies to free flow inside and out as they wish, we also have a large sensory are for babies to rest.


Our 18 months to 2 years room - We have 2 integrated rooms and a garden where the children free flow into the different areas, separate and messy play rooms, with staff encouraging self selection this gives the children choices and encourages independence at a young age.
A bright and airy space with the children's work on display in every room.

Butterflies ]

Our 2-2.5 year old room - This room has it's own access to the garden area, enabling free flow, giving the children freedom of choice.

Children are becoming more independent in this room, staff encourage this by working with parents on things such as potty training.
Our Butterflies also get a chance to interact with pre school in the garden, which prepare them for the transition into that room.


Our pre school room for children age 2.5-5 years - A very large room where we can take up to 40 children, which prepares the children for school. 
The designated learning area, free flow into the garden area, a great team of 7 staff who plan individually for your children and extend there learning, help to achieve t he many attributes our pre school room can off to assist your childs development in preparation for school.
