Welcome to our nursery...

Busy Bees in Hove provides OUTSTANDING childcare, as reported by Ofsted.

Busy Bees at Hove operates within a large two story detached house, where we have aimed to keep a lot of the original features of the house to provide a home from home feel. We are on the main commuter route and have easy access two minutes away from the A27, 10 minutes from Brighton and Hove stations that have direct routes to London. We are in a residential area but only 10 minutes away from the main city centre of Brighton.

We have a beautiful large garden that lends itself to a multitude of outdoor activities that your child can participate in.

We provide care for 0-5 year olds, operating all year round (except bank holidays) from 7.00am to 6.30pm – Monday to Fridays. Children are provided with breakfast, lunch and tea, with healthy snacks twice a day (e.g. fruit/vegetable crudités), milk and fresh drinking water. We have an extensive breakfast menu that includes croissants, bagels and breakfast muffins. All our food is made fresh on site by our chef Lee.

We have a dedicated staff team who work closely with you and your child getting to know you and ensuring the children in our care receive the best possible outcomes. Hove nursery has a real home from home feel with named rooms that allow the children to have a real sense of belonging within the setting. Displays are bright and colourful showing off all the children’s achievements within the nursery.

We also take the children out (ratio permitting) to places in the local vicinity to give children an opportunity to observe their local community and we have strong links with the wider community allowing the children to learn more about the wider world and places around us.

Please feel free to give us a call to gain more information about the nursery and book in a show around with one of our team.

The most welcoming nursery/preschool I’ve ever come across. Both my boys adore each member of staff that works with them. From start to where we are at now, my children love all of the activities and games that they are learning and their personal and soc...
