Busy Bees nursery in Northwich is a purpose built, single storey building with a vast outside play area providing enjoyment and OUTSTANDING learning opportunities for the children. We are situated on Kingsmead Square next to the doctor’s surgery, 5 minute drive from Northwich town centre and train station. Here at Northwich we have a dedicated staff team who ensure the children’s individual needs are met by providing activities tailored to them individually. We have 3 large base rooms where we care for children aged 3 months-5 years.
Younger babies are cared for in the cosy baby room by a devoted staff team and as they grow are able to access all areas of the baby unit. They will enjoy peaceful activities in the purple area together with stimulating ones in the black and white area. They will be encouraged to explore the numerous other areas of learning that include sensory and shiny areas, a wonderful role play area, messy play activities and communication friendly dens to ‘chill’ in as well as opportunities to free flow in and out of the garden as they like, taking their carer’s with them, of course!. The toddlers, aged between 24 months and 36 months are taken care of by the Toddler Room Team. They have two well stocked, spacious rooms, either side of their toilet and nappy changing bathroom and offer free flow between the inside and outside areas with challenging activities in and out. Our Pre-school room is the children’s final destination at 3 years, before transitioning to school. A team of experienced staff are dedicated to ensuring that they are ‘school ready’ by the end of their time with us. Children are encouraged to develop good social and communication skills that will in turn promote independence, problem-solving and reasoning skills and the ability to assess their own risk and behaviours. The highly committed staff have high expectations of the children which supports every child to reach their full potential.
We have a fantastic library which has over 600 books, a parents room and a secure outside area where we have some fantastic resources and play equipment including two sunken sand pits, musical chimes, story logs and a climbing wall, to name but a few.
We offer defined areas where the children in our care can play, rest and explore, including cosy quiet areas for reading stories and enjoying songs and rhymes, areas for sand, water and other messy activities for exploring their senses and mark making as well as areas for building structures and playing with small world toys together with opportunities to explore their imaginations in inspiring role play areas.

A tour of the nursery was provided by the nursery manager as the setting has recently undergone extensive refurbishment. The nursery has a calm, nurturing feel using neutral colours for furnishings, flooring, decor and displays. Each room has been restocked with new resources which are well organised into areas of continuous provision. Parental involvement is strong. The Early Assessment Record meeting provides parents the opportunity to inform baseline assessments of their children. Home observation books have been particularly effective in involving parents in assessments of children's learning. Information was also gathered about children's transition to school and a range of effective strategies used by the nursery were shared. The nursery feeds into a number of schools in the local area and different approaches by schools were discussed. The nursery completes a 'Seamless Transitions' booklet which includes the child, parent and setting voice. It provides comprehensive information to a receiving setting/school about the individual child, their strengths, interests and levels of wellbeing and involvement. Children are well supported to manage their transition to school. - Roise Hoyle
