Busy Bees Ipswich Rushmere is a purpose-built nursery, situated at the edge of Rushmere Heath on the Bixley Farm Estate. There is ample parking on both sides of the nursery via Foxhall Road or Main Road. The local cycle path runs by the nursery providing another choice of transport which is very popular with parents. Safe storage of bicycles is available too if required.
The nursery is airy, spacious, and inviting with 10 childcare rooms full of stimulating, exciting activities for the children to enjoy. Babies also have the benefit of an additional quiet, calming sleep room where they can dream away.
At the rear of the building is a large, inquisitive outdoor area for the children to explore developing their self-esteem, confidence, and love of the natural environment with a separate area for the babies to allow them a safe space to experience away from the older children.
