Set your child up with a great start in life. Busy Bees provides high-quality childcare in Portishead for babies, toddlers, and pre-school-age children. 

Conveniently located just a short drive from the town centre, our nursery features multiple childcare rooms. This gives children at different stages in their development the opportunity to be around others at a similar point in their journey and allows them to thrive, grow and learn about the world around them at a pace they're comfortable with. 

We believe in making learning fun. Each of our rooms features educational toys and activities that keep them engaged throughout the day - always following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Role play toys and costumes allow them to explore their imaginations, while the indoor sandpit allows them to test their fine motor skills. Whatever your child enjoys, there's something for them at our Busy Bees nursery in Portishead! 

Whenever possible, we like to take fun outdoors too. Our secure outdoor space lets the kids get out in the fresh air and be active. The climbing frame and tunnels allow them to get used to taking safe risks - while supervised by our nursery staff. Meanwhile, picnic benches provide the perfect setting for those quieter times. 

Want to learn more about how our Portishead nursery could help your child thrive? Book your visit today - we can't wait to meet you!
