Welcome to our nursery…
Busy Bees Day Nursery in Hammersmith is a converted two story building that offers a warm and welcoming environment to both children and parents. We are perfectly located in the middle of Hammersmith where there are great bus and train links for commuters into central London.
Our nursery offers places for children from 3 months to 5 years old, with rooms tailored to meet the children’s needs with activities set daily to build on the children’s interests. Our baby room caters for children under 1 and is a soft, calm environment with resources to build on children’s early development. There is a black, white and red area where we explore sensory activities and also a physical soft play area for children to crawl and climb.
Pre-Toddler’s room is for children under 2 and it is a lovely spacious room for them to continue their physical development with different physical toys set up for them daily including jumping stones, balancing beams and mini obstacle courses. Pre-Toddler’s enjoy a range of creative activities such as corn flour, playdough as well as painting which they take home to share with their families.
We have an amazing space for our 2-5’s children with lots of room to investigate and explore. We have a Pre-School Committee for our older children; this gives them the choice of how they want their room to look and also demonstrates one of the many ways British Values is implemented within our nursery. We also offer a range of Math’s, Literacy and Science activities within our room. One of the children’s favorite activities is creating their very own volcanoes.
Our chef, Dianne is based on site and has been working with us at Busy Bees Hammersmith for over 15 years and who prepares fresh meals and snacks each day for the children to enjoy, in line with the Silver Food for Life Catering Mark by the Soil Association. All of our children enjoy taking part in various cooking activities such as creating their own pizzas, fruit salads as well as baking different healthy treats for their friends and families. We also have the 10 steps to healthy eating initiative in place within the nursery.
We love to build strong relationships with our parents, to ensure that the highest quality of care is provided to all children. We work in partnership with parents to understand every child's individual needs and interests so that we can deliver tailored care that suits every child's skills and development.
Our parent partnership group meets every quarter, giving parents the opportunity to be involved in fundraising for our charity or provide support to new parents. We are always welcoming new parents to join.
The children at Busy Bees Hammersmith go on regular trips to Brook Green Park, Hammersmith Library and for walks in the environment. Our Pre-School children enjoy going on technology and alphabet hunts continuing their learning in the outside environment. The staff in all rooms carries out different music activities appropriate to the children’s age.
Nappies and wipes are provided for all children under two with separate changing areas within the rooms. CCTV is in place at the entrance of our nursery for secure access and peace of mind.
Busy Bees Hammersmith offers an easy settling period to suit children and families and as well as regular play and stay sessions, there is also a baby group session that runs every Friday between 10:30-11:30 where parents are invited to stay with us for an hour and enjoy a morning with their little ones.
