Welcome to our nursery...

Busy Bees in Chafford Hundred Station Side provides GOOD childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2017). 

Busy Bees Chafford Hundred Station Side 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 opened since 2002.

We currently have 4 rooms open 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. 

Bombo 1 

Our baby room is for our youngest babies, we take babies from 6 weeks and they will stay in this room until they are ready to go into the older baby room, this is a decision that is made with the key person and the parents together. 

Our Bombo 1 room, is newly refurbished, and offers our youngest babies a soft, home from home environment, to nurture their development. Our Bombo team have experience in working with our youngest babies and are passionate in delivering the highest quality care.  

Bombo 2 

Our older Baby Room offers babies a safe, fun environment, until they are 2 years old. This is 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. 

Our Bombo Room’s work closely together, meaning the transition from Bombo 1 into Bombo 2 is a seamless as possible.  


Our 2 year room, where the children will stay until they are 3 years old. Our children have a great time in this room, the staff team work very closely with the children, encouraging independence and helping support their development, in potty training – when parents feel their child is ready. This room has it's own access to the garden area, enabling free flow, giving the children freedom of choice.

Buzz – preschool
