Busy Bees day nursery at Fallowfield is a purpose built nursery and is easily accessible from both Manchester & Stockport town centre as well as the M56, M61 and Princess Parkway, we are also close to the main Manchester Universities, Hospitals and Airport.
The manager and team are fully committed to providing good quality childcare and the senior team have been here for many years. Our company holds the Investor in People Award and all of our staff are encouraged to attend further training to develop their skills; we have a dedicated training team at our National Support Centre that provides a varied training package for all staff and we also attend Local Authority Training. The majority of the staff team are qualified up to level 3 and above or are working towards their qualifications.
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.
We have a qualified Chef on-site who provides healthy and nutritious meals for the children. Bradley holds a nationally recognised qualification in catering management and hospitality, a Food Hygiene certificate and also a Food & Nutrition qualification. The nursery also has the Level 5 Food Hygiene rating from the Local Authority and also holds the Soil Association approved Food for Life Bronze certificate which is a government backed scheme. All food is cooked fresh daily and is locally sourced. The nursery menus are varied and we can cater for any dietary requirements.
We have built good relationships with the local Sure Start Centre and we are a Sure Start Satellite Centre. We also work very closely with the Local Early Years Team. Julie our Finance Administrator is also highly qualified and supports parents on a daily basis with any issues relating to nursery funding and fees.

Hello my name is Lori Carroll, I have worked in Early Years for over 13 years and have a range of qualifications from an NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Management and my Foundation Degree in Early Years and Professional Development, I am currently studying for my BA Honours Degree in Early Years and Professional Development.
I am extremely passionate about providing high quality childcare to the families and children we look after. My aim is to ensure our families SMILE with PRIDE.
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Ethan has really enjoyed his time and it is a shame that we have to leave as we are moving homes."
""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"
