Busy Bees Nottingham University Nursery opened its doors in October 2001 to general public, students and staff of the University to look after and educate children from birth to five.
The nursery is a single storey purpose built nursery situated close to the QMC with easy access onto the A52.
We have 5 spacious rooms which are bright and welcoming. We also have individual gardens suited to the age range of the children; all gardens have soft surfaced flooring and fencing around to enable a safe and secure environment.
We have an open door policy allowing parents to come and go as they please. Prospective parents are more than welcome to drop in as no appointment is necessary.
We have many long serving staff members that have been here for over 5 years and understand the importance of providing a warm, friendly and caring environment for parents and their children to feel settled. This shows what a dedicated team we have, who are dedicated to the childcare profession and strive to ensure each child is happy and well cared for.
Our Staff are supported from an excellent training department within our head office team. Staff hold qualifications ranging from NVQ2 to NVQ 4, 75% of staff are qualified to Level 3 or above.
Being on the Nottingham University Campus sees the nursery with a wide range of cultures allowing us to celebrate festivals throughout the year and ensuring children’s individual beliefs are valued.
The children are provided with a healthy and nutritious balanced diet which is prepared and cooked daily at the nursery by our experienced chef. We have received the highest rating from the Environmental Health of 5 stars during our audit.
We provide daily feedback, progress reports, learning journeys and regular parents’ evenings.
The nursery offers funding for children aged 2 years as well as the nursery education funding for 3 – 5 year olds.
We are very grateful to Busy Bees and all the staff working there.These last two summers have been a wonderful, great experience for our child and for us, it was so hard saying good-bye this time.
Staff are highly skilled at planning activities that enable the children to meet their learning needs that they need to build on. - Aline Nixon
We've been using Busy Bees for over 3 years now and both of our children LOVE going which means that as parents we are more than happy with sending them to the nursery.
I have been very impressed by the way the staff inform me about my sonâ€™s activities in the nursery. In addition to his daily diary, I get a full verbal report at the end of each day
I cannot say how grateful I am for your understanding and friendliness over the the years, you will be very much missed by our family
