Unlock your child's potential with Busy Bees Thurstaston!

Our large day nursery in Wirral provides a warm, welcoming environment that allows children to thrive. Featuring multiple childcare rooms for toddlers and pre-schoolers, the bright and airy nursery setting provides ample space for them to play and learn.

Our dedicated team encourages children to be imaginative and creative. So, they're always planning activities, such as having the children draw and paint their favourite animals or letting them role-play as cooks in the play kitchen. Everything is designed to keep their minds active and engaged.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework too, which is designed to prepare them for the school experience.

As well as offering lots of indoor space and resources, our nursery also features a great outdoor area. Here, we encourage children to be active, make their own discoveries and take safe risks under the supervision of our nursery team.

We aim to make life as easy as possible for parents., Whether that's through the healthy snacks, meals, and drinks we provide children throughout the day,  or our on-site car park, where you can safely pick up and drop off your children away from the main road.

So, if you're looking for childcare in Wirral, book a visit today. We can't wait to welcome you to our Thurstaston nursery!
