Our aim is to ensure that your children’s day at nursery is happy and memorable and strive to meet each individual child’s needs and interests by providing a wide variety of exciting activities and play opportunities. The children take part in a range of Busy Bees initiatives which include Wake and Shake, Busy Babies and Grow Your Own activities where the children can grow plants and vegetables in the on-site nursery allotment. Our outdoor play area has recently been renovated and provides a great outdoor learning environment where the children can play and explore.

Cheryl Renoyds


"This is a fabulous nursery and I would recommend it to anyone who lives nearby and is looking for a safe, caring and loving place for their child to play. My son has been at Busy Bees for approx 6 months. The nursery has been a big part of our lives since February and both my son, husband and I will miss the daily dropping off and picking up and finding out what exciting activities have happened that day."

Lucy Hunt


"I cannot thank you enough for looking after my child like one of your own for the past year and a half.You have all been so amazing throughout. Thank you all for being there when i couldn't be."

Michelle Murray


"I am confident with the services this nursery provides as both my children have attended with a 7 year gap. Whilst both children have attended it still has the same staff as previous and that to means a lot. Each child is treated with individuality and their needs are met. Staff are friendly and warming too."

Nikki Turner


"Ethan has really enjoyed his time and it is a shame that we have to leave as we are moving homes."

Sarim Ali


""I was very happy with my experience, the staff was welcoming and very friendly." "I felt very comfortable knowing my son will be looked after." April 2016"
