Welcome to our nursery...

Busy Bees Northampton Riverside Nursery is a large purpose built nursery situated on Riverside Park, conveniently tucked between Honda and Volkswagen. We have our own private car park making access to the nursery easy for parents with small children. We cater for children from 3 months to 5 years, we have bright, spacious, age appropriate rooms each with access to their own gardens making free flow easily accessible. We are open from 7.30 am offering busy parents a chance to start their day early and we close at 6.00pm.

All our rooms are very spacious and our staff are highly qualified and motivated in ensuring that your child will have fun whilst growing and developing. We have a Key Person system and every child has their own Learning Journal which records their development which is then shared with you at our parent evenings. Parents evenings are held twice a year where parents will have an opportunity to see their child’s key person and discuss their development.

Nicky the Chef is committed to providing delicious home cooked food, which are nutritionally balanced and healthy. We have a six 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 meal. We are also fully equipped to provide food for children with allergies or intolerances as well as cultural preferences and we will always provide a vegetarian option to meat dishes.

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.
