Welcome to our nursery…
The Busy Bees nursery in Guiseley provides outstanding childcare as reported by Ofsted in June 2013. The nursery opened in 2003 and is a 100 place purpose built setting, all on one accessible level. The nursery is based in a great central location, with fantastic rail and road links to Ilkley, Leeds and Bradford.
The nursery has car parking, making drop off and pick up both safe and easy.
We also have a lovely large outdoor space with many play and learning opportunities for the children to enjoy.
We have a strong, caring staff team whose qualifications range from NVQ level 2 through to degrees in Early Childhood Studies. Also part of the team are a Health and Safety Coordinator, SENCO and Behaviour Management Mentor.
The nursery offers delicious home cooked foods prepared in our on-site kitchen. The foods are nutritionally balanced and the menus are on a 3-weekly cycle and change seasonally to ensure the best local produce is always sourced.
We are dedicated to ensuring that the children have a wonderful time whilst at the nursery and that their development needs and interests are met through fun and enjoyable play. This is achieved through a wide range of activities, such as creative craft, music, books, sand and water, role play, ICT, small world and construction. Detailed daily feedback about the child’s day is given via our online app ‘Parentzone’ and verbally at the end of each session.
Your child is assigned a key person and they would be responsible for ensuring your child’s learning and development is enhanced through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We ensure their observations and developmental progress are communicated through our online iConnect system. Formal Assessments are completed and shared with parents at least every 4 months. We also hold Parent’s Evenings at least twice a year, or at any other time the parent wishes to discuss their child’s progress with us. The children are able to take part in a variety of fun and exciting activities and our fantastic educational enhancements such as Babble to Chatter (to support early communication and language) Shake and Write (to encourage early handwriting skills) and Wake and Shake (to boost confidence and physical fitness). We also offer Spanish classes in our Preschool.
Please take a look at our Events page to see what we will be up to in the next few weeks and see our News page for photos and write ups from previous events.
We also work in close partnership with our parents, which allows for on-going improvements and developments within the nursery. We hold Parent Information evenings and meetings periodically and this allows parents the opportunity to put forward their own and also other parent’s views and suggestions.
Come and see the fantastic facilities for yourself, we are happy to show you around. Simply call or email us today for more information and an appointment to suit you.
