Picket Twenty nursery was established in 2016 and is now part of Busy Bees Nurseries, to be known as Busy Bees Picket Twenty. We are thrilled to welcome educators, children, parents and carers to our Busy Bees family!  

This wonderful day nursery is conveniently located in Picket Twenty, a new development of houses with excellent links to the A303 and A34. Busy Bees Picket Twenty nursery is in the heart of the community maintaining strong links with Pilgrims Cross primary school which is a stone’s throw from the nursery.  

Caring for children from 3 months to 5 years, our day care nursery in Picket Twenty offers a home away from home with a welcoming and stimulating learning environment. With four bright unique rooms designed to meet children’s needs, there is always a resource or activity available to pique your child’s curiosity and interest. Boosting independence, decision-making and creativity, all our rooms are free flow,  opening directly onto the garden, enabling children to access the outdoors all the time. 

We can accommodate additional early starts from 7:40pm and late finishes to 6:20pm - this must be arranged beforehand with the nursery directly.

If you are looking for a nursery where your child will flourish in a nurturing environment, why not book a visit to Busy Bees Picket Twenty? Our team of friendly and highly-trained Early Years educators are eager to meet you and show you around.  

Please note we are currently updating this page with all the facilities, fees and nursery information (and the convenience of booking a visit online) that we know our parents and carers need when finding the best nurseries for their children. 

In the meantime, we invite you to call the nursery directly on 01264 353410 to arrange a personal tour.

"We adore the staff and they’ve been nothing but brilliant for our boy who has been with them for over a year now. The main reason we chose this nursery is because of the menu with its two hot meals a day and the opening times, so hoping that neither of these change as we’ll be forced to look elsewhere. We don’t see many updates on Tapestry, we had thought this would be a couple of times a week but especially in hatchlings compared to nest we don’t often see what our boy has been getting up to whilst at nursery. The crossing outside in the dark evenings is also really dangerous so hoping that the nursery is putting pressure on the council to make this safer. "
