Welcome to our nursery...

At Busy Bees Leeds Headingley we absolutely love to play, create and educate together.

We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Busy Bees Leeds at Headingley is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.

Busy Bees at Leeds Headingley enjoys a wonderful, secure and private position, situated in a walled garden in a residential area of Headingley, Leeds. A large converted Victorian house with high ceilings lends lots of character to our home-from-home nursery

We are a short 7 minute walk from the nearest town centre of Headingley, and for commuting parents Headingley Railway Station’s Northern Line services are only 7 minutes away by car.

Our expert and passionate childcare team caters for children aged 12 weeks up to the age of 5 across four individual rooms, specifically designed to provide tailored, age and stage-appropriate activities and experiences.

Quality Childcare in Headingley, Leeds

Children at Busy Bees Leeds Headingley enjoy a programme of stimulating and exciting activities and experiences, developed in line with the EYFS statutory framework. Our aim at Busy Bees Leeds Headingley is to maximise the potential of every child in our care and to nurture happy, confident, independent children.

There’s every type of play imaginable including messy play, sensory play, construction areas and junk-modelling plus we also host different themes in our well-resourced home corners from banks and post offices to hair salons and supermarkets. Imaginations are developed via role play and we develop early literacy, listening and comprehension skills during regular story and rhyme-time.

Home-From-Home Baby Room

Our experienced and caring team is adept at settling babies, and parents, into the new nursery routine. We know how stressful it can feel when you leave your little one for the first time so we’ll work closely with you to ensure that the transition from home to nursery is as smooth as it can be.

That’s why we’ve developed what we call a home-from-home approach to the styling of our nurseries.

Our self-contained baby room has been decorated to resemble a lounge or living room with all of the same creature comforts you might have at home. It makes for a friendly, homely and welcome environment.

Preschool Learning and School Readiness

We believe children learn best when they’re happy and relaxed so learning through play continues to be a dominant theme right through to our pre-school room. We are also mindful of the transition ahead for those going on to ‘big school’ so here at Busy Bees Leeds Headingley we work hard to gently introduce a little more structure into the daily routine.

You can expect your preschool child to learn all of the staples of phonics, literacy and elemental mathematics but here at Busy Bees Leeds Headingley Nursery we go one step further and run dedicated week-long school readiness programmes to introduce practical concepts like packed lunches, lining-up for class and getting changed for PE.

When children leave Busy Bees Leeds Headingley Preschool they typically go on to neighbouring schools including Shire Oak CE Primary School, Headingley, Meanwood CE Primary School, Meanwood, Leeds and Quarry Mount Primary School, Leeds.

Outdoor Learning

We encourage the children in our care to get outside every day whatever the weather and our beautiful English country garden provides ample opportunity for energetic play and exploration. We have three smaller gardens to allow safe age-appropriate play and a large garden at the rear for bug-hunting and Gruffalo-discovering!
