Whether your child enjoys reading, painting, role play, or exploring outside, there is something for everyone at our West Lothian nursery.  

At Busy Bees, we understand that choosing the right nursery for your child is key, and that you shouldn’t miss out on any key developments or milestones while they are in our care. It is for this reason specific reason that we have our Parent Zone app, where your child’s key worker will upload updates on day-to-day activities as well as any important events.
