My little girl loves nursery. She has spent the last 3 years at Mill Hill and still talks about the staff every day. She has grown into a very confident, sociable little girl
All staff say hello to my child every morning and are very supportive during settle sessions.
My child is very happy in the nursery and I know she is getting great care by all staff.
My son adores his key carer....It completely reassures me, knowing that he is secure in her care gives me all the confidence in the world
My little girl very much enjoys her time at nursery. It's a great place for her to enjoy her favourite hobby...painting! She has developed great relationships with both the staff and her friends.
Busy Bees Day Nursery in Mill Hill is a stunning detached property located in one of Mill Hill’s most sought after turnings. It’s within close proximity of the shopping and transport amenities at Mill Hill Broadway, including Thameslink Station.

Mill Way is well located for popular local schools in both the private and state sectors, is close to places of worship and gives easy access to the A1, M1 and A41.
The nursery has rooms appropriate for each age group, which provide a homely atmosphere for all the children. We have a large garden surrounding the building where the children have opportunities to explore the outside environment. Experienced and qualified staff cater for all children’s individual needs and interests. Each child is assigned a key person who will observe, plan and assess their development and keep records of their personal learning.
Cecilia the Chef provides delicious home cooked food which is nutritionally balanced and healthy. We have a four week rolling menu which takes advantage of fresh, seasonal produce and allows our children to experience a wide variety of tastes, textures, flavours and colours within their meals. We are also fully equipped to provide food for children with allergies or intolerances as well as cultural preferences. We will always provide a vegetarian option to meat dishes. The nursery has recently been awarded a 5 star rating for food hygiene by the food standards agency-the highest rating possible.
The staff here at Mill Hill are dedicated, hard-working, skilled and most of all passionate about their roles, the children and the parents. Most of our staff are either NNEB, CACHE & NVQ level 3 trained or working towards it.
The nursery has a Parent Partnership Group (PPG) that can be contacted via email, if you would like to ask any questions or advice. The group consists of parents whose children already attend the nursery and are happy to give support when leaving your children for the first time or even when making a transition up to the next age group.
Busy Bees in Mill Hill provides GOOD childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2012)
Over the past 2 years we have successfully implemented many of the Busy Bees 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. The initiatives include Busy Babies for our Caterpillars Room, Grow Your Own, Cooking With Me, Every Child’s a Talker, Wake and Shake and the Golden Mile!
We also offer extra-curricular activities, for the Pre-school children we offer ‘Premier Football’ and ‘Stretch and Grow’ for our over 2 year olds where the children learn to be healthy, exercise and learn too!
Your child will have lots of fun learning through play as they develop into a confident, independent and sociable young person. The children are encouraged to explore, investigate, experiment and discover the world around them. Whilst having fun with all of these activities, they are also learning to develop in accordance with the national curriculum guidance, which is the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
If you would like your child to experience a happy, safe and stimulating environment, please arrange an appointment to come and visit the nursery and see for yourself what a great nursery it really is. We will be happy to answer any questions either by telephone or in person.
