Discover why parents love our childcare in Loughborough! We're here to help you unleash your child's potential and set them up for the best start in life.

Here at Busy Bees Loughborough, we look after babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers. With dedicated rooms and spaces for each age group, we ensure the children get to play, learn, and have fun at a pace that suits them. We make sure babies and younger children have everything they need while they're with us - including access to nappies, wipes, and formula milk.

The nursery features plenty of toys and games designed to stimulate learning. From building bricks to playdough, painting tables to reading corners - whatever your child enjoys most, there's always plenty of fun to be had. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, which helps to set children up for school education.

Our dedicated room teams are always looking to arrange activities that keep the kids fully engaged throughout the day. We're lucky enough to have access to secure outdoor space, where the children can enjoy the fresh air, learn about taking safe risks under adult supervision and most of all enjoy themselves. No two days at our Loughborough nursery are ever the same!
