Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees at Leyton Road is a 55 place nursery set on two levels in a converted house. The nursery is very easily accessible from Harpenden train station, which is only a five minute walk away. There are pushchair storage facilities available for those wanting to walk to the train station. The nursery is also within easy reach of both St Albans and Luton town centres. We are very close to the local park, dentist and library. This means that the children can experience outings whilst at nursery.
We have a very strong staff team working at Leyton Road. You can meet the team here. The staff are a mixture of NVQ Level 3 to 5 qualified early years educators and also staff who are studying towards their NVQ’s. The manager of the nursery has a level 4 in Leadership Capability and an NNEB.
The staff are consistently trained in various aspects of childcare, Busy Bees offer their own in house training to staff, these include such courses as Safeguarding Children and Paediatric First Aid.
Kershnie our nursery chef provides all the children with two fresh, healthy and nutritious meals a day, which are prepared on site. The children also get breakfast in the morning and two snacks during the day.
So that we can keep the parents fully informed of new things going on in the nursery we have set up a Parent Partnership Group. The idea of this is for parents to improve the service we provide by giving ideas for the nursery. They can go to a representative who will then relay the information onto management, improving relationships with parents and creating a strong bond with families.
Leyton Road was rated as ‘GOOD’ in our last Ofsted inspection. ‘Staff ensure that children have access to a good range of resources so that children receive experiences that promote their progress overall, as well as being enjoyable and fun’
We would love to show you around our beautiful nursery and meet our wonderful team. You can book a visit here.

What our customers say about us
Happy with the team and overall outcome but there is no communication to the parents. We are all completely out of touch with what's going on inside the building, what are children are learning, how they are doing, no updates or info on new staff starting, ...
There isn't much information communicated at the end of each day or generally. We feel out of the loop. We know our child is happy there but have no idea who his friends are or what they are learning each week. It is hard to reinforce what your child is pic...
