Busy Bees Maidstone Ragstone House is a nursery set in a beautiful original building, 5 minutes walking distance from the town centre and local Railway station. We have own car park which is available for use by the parents. The nursery has a total of 3 children’s base rooms across two floors and is divided into different age ranges. The ground floor caters for children aged between 3 months and 2 years and over 3’s are located on the first floor.
The nursery was fully refurbished in 2013 and is spacious and provides a warm welcoming, vibrant and stimulating atmosphere. It is a unique environment that is a part of the community and has active links with local agencies.
We have successfully implemented many of the Busy Bees exclusive initiatives that are created by our Head office Childcare team. Each initiative has its own design to aid the children to succeed and enjoy many areas of learning and development.
Babble to Chatter - a unique educational enhancement to support communication for children of all ages.

We are very passionate at providing the best possible start for children and their families and involving the community.
All meals are prepared fresh on the day in our own kitchen by our onsite chef. Menus are developed by Busy Bees Catering Team and are designed to be nutritious and healthy. We have been rated 5* by Food Hygiene Standards.
We value our parent’s views and opinions and our Parent Partnership scheme is designed to ensure exceptional communication between the parents and the nursery and to suggest areas for improvements.
Our philosophy here at Maidstone Ragstone House is to go above and beyond all expectations and to welcome new children and family members to our ‘Busy Bee Family’.
The nursery has an exceptional, highly qualified team who are passionate and dedicated to providing fun, professional quality care.
