Cares for children aged
Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees Nursery at Northampton Spinney Hill has been awarded GOOD by Ofsted (July 2017). The nursery is situated on the Kettering Road, next to the Morrisons' superstore. We are ten minutes from the town centre.
We provide quality childcare for children aged from 6 weeks to five years. We are open between 7.30am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday. All the rooms are beautifully resourced and have direct access to our newly refurbished garden areas. We have amazing mud kitchens for the children to play and explore in and climbing walls to test their skills. The rooms are divided as follows:
Bombos: Our under 2’s area has access to 2 large rooms. We have clearly defined areas for rest, sensory play and physical activities. Both rooms are bright, welcoming and full of great things for your child to do.
Both rooms have direct access to a large, well-resourced garden which allows the children to free flow from the room to the outside and in turn encourages independence from a young age. One garden has a soft surface the other is grassed allowing children to play in a safe and stimulating environment.
Bumble caters for children aged 2 and 3 years. These two rooms are newly refurbished and fully equipped for such a large age group. All equipment is easily accessible to the children to self-select. The outside area is equipped with things such as creative tunnels and cosy dens.
Buzz caters for children 3-5 years. This unit has two adjoining rooms which have recently been refurbished. The children have independent access to all resources such as small world, book corner and construction area. The outside area has a wonderful mud kitchen to play and explore in. We have great learning initiatives such as UP that is there to encourage and stimulate young bodies and minds with a variety of activities.
We have a wonderful parent partnership group. The team work well together and working in partnership has helped to really move the nursery forward over the last year
We provide wonderful weekly menus that are both well balanced and delicious.
