Welcome to our nursery...

At Busy Bees Harlesden Day Nursery and Preschool, London we absolutely love to play, create and educate together.

We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Busy Bees Harlesden is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.

Quality childcare at Busy Bees Harlesden

Busy Bees at Harlesden sits in a one-storey purpose-built building just off Longstone Avenue in residential Harlesden. Our children enjoy a safe and secure environment in gated grounds and backing onto the open green spaces of Roundwood Park.

We are well connected for public transport with the 226 bus stop a 5 minute-walk away running between Golders Green and Ealing Broadway Station. Other major bus routes can be accessed on Harrow road, a short 10 minute-walk from Treetops Harlesden.

Willesden Junction station for Central rail services between London Euston and Watford is approximately 6 minutes by car.

The majority of parking nearby is for residents with parking permits with a small offering of pay-and-display bays available.

Our passionate childcare team cares for children between the ages of 12 weeks and 5 years.

Happy, Confident Children

Children at Busy Bees Harlesden Day Nursery and Preschool enjoy a programme of stimulating and exciting activities and experiences, developed in line with the EYFS statutory framework. Our aim at Busy Bees Harlesden is to maximise the potential of every child in our care and to nurture happy, confident, independent children.

There’s every type of play imaginable including messy play, sensory play, construction areas and junk-modelling plus we also host different themes in our well-resourced home corners from banks and post offices to hair salons and supermarkets. Imaginations are developed via role play and we develop early literacy, listening and comprehension skills during regular story and rhyme-time.

Preschool children receive more focused support on phonics, writing, literacy and mathematics in preparation for their move onto ‘big school’.

Our preschool children tend to go on to neighbouring schools including John Keble CE Primary School, Harlesden, Newfield Primary School, Harlesden, St Mary’s CE Primary School, Willesden and St Joseph’s RC Primary School, Willesden.

Magnificent Outdoor Play

Outdoor play is key to a child’s development and something we take seriously here at Busy Bees Harlesden. Not only does it support the crucial development of large muscles but it also encourages balance, coordination and important social skills.

Children at Busy Bees Harlesden can delight in our fabulous refurbished garden with plenty of space for energetic play and exploration. It’s well-equipped with a variety of resources and apparatus including a gardening area for our green-fingered guests. There are also hills and tunnels to explore.

Our under 2’s enjoy their very own area for safe play at their own pace.

If we fancy a change of scenery we also make good use of neighbouring Roundwood Park, getting the children out and about in their local community.
