Welcome to our nursery...

Leicester City Busy Bees opened in 2003 and is situated in Leicester City Centre's conservation area of New Walk. It is a beautifully converted Grade II listed Victorian villa and is within easy walking distance of the city centre, train station, Leicester University and Queen's Road.

The nursery has three light and airy floors for babies, toddlers and pre-school children. Each room has been carefully planned to give flexible space for group and individual play within the activity areas The nursery is well resourced so children can make choices, set goals for themselves and be able to achieve.

In our Toddler and Pre-School rooms the can explore a world of IT. With touch screens and a wide range of hands-on equipment, development of sensory, fine motor skills, thinking and imagination are encouraged and supported.

Our two outdoor play areas keep the children at the heart of the space and design, allowing them to explore and be naturally curious. Children can engage in the world around them by growing plants and vegetables, climbing, being musical.

“Partnership with parents are strong and supportive, leading to effective key persons relationships. As a result, children feel comfortable and happy to attend.” Ofsted 2014.

Our experienced staff team is dedicated to provide the very best care and learning for the children whilst involving the parents by valuing their input in their child's time with us.

“Staff use their professional skills and expertise to best effect to plan a varied range of activities, that engage children's interest and curiosity. This helps them to develop the characteristics of effective learning” Ofsted 2014.
