"My 4 year has just left to go to school. She has been going to busy bees since she was one. Every single member of staff have been amazing during her time there. She left busy bees confident about starting school, all the staff have nurtured her and help her learn and built her confidence. My 2 year old is currently at busy bees again the staff do an amazing job with her. All the staff are helpful friendly and listen to any concerns or worries. I would definitely recommend this nursery for any child."
