Welcome to our nursery...
At Busy Bees Cheltenham Prestbury Road Day Nursery and Preschool we absolutely love to play, create and educate together.
We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Prestbury Road, is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.
Busy Bees Cheltenham Prestbury Road Day Nursery and preschool sits in a cosy converted bungalow set back off the main Prestbury Road (B4632).
We’re a lovely welcoming and homely nursery with a large garden and ample parking for convenient drop-offs and pick-ups.
Our convenient location offers easy access to Cheltenham town centre, reached in approximately 9 minutes by car. Cheltenham Spa railway station is reached within 12 minutes by car with services from Arriva Trains Wales, GWR, London Midland and Cross Country.
Our beautiful nursery is also within easy access of major commuting roads including the M5 and A40.
We are currently undergoing a full refurbishment to give our homely nursery and preschool a luxurious new internal decoration.
Play, Create, Educate at Prestbury Road
The team at Busy Bees Cheltenham Prestbury Road take an individual approach to each and every child, monitoring their progress and development in line with the EYFS statutory framework. A combination of child-led and creative play helps to maximise the potential of each and every child in our care.
We deliver a programme of stimulating and exciting activities from messy play, sensory play, home corner and role play to the pre-school staples of phonics, literacy and elemental mathematics – we’ve got every age and stage of childcare covered.
We believe children learn best when they’re relaxed and happy so we work hard to provide a safe and familiar environment with lots of encouragement. We enjoy active play, building and construction, exploring nature and lots of creative activities and arts and crafts. We regularly take the children on walks to Pittville Park, feeding the ducks and exploring our community.
In addition to our educational curriculum we offer additional activities at a small fee. These include Yoga for our preschool children and Boogie Beats music and movement classes for our 2-3 year olds. We also offer a programme of topical workshops throughout the year including potty training and letters and sounds plus regular stay and play sessions.
Prestbury Road Preschool
Our preschool children enjoy the benefit and guidance of two members of staff with degrees in Early Childhood studies. Along with the rest of the childcare team they provide more focused learning opportunities to help our pre-schoolers get ready for their move to ‘big school’.
We support school readiness by working on letters and sounds, developing literacy skills to support reading and writing and by embedding mathematics into our everyday lives and routines. We also teach practical skills – fastening coats and shoes, independent trips to the bathroom and self-serve at mealtimes – to develop independence and confidence.
Our preschool children tend to go on to local schools including St Mary’s CE Primary School, Oakwood Primary School and Dunalley Primary School. We have close links with neighbouring schools, attending sports day at Oakwood Primary and St Mary’s for their annual Christmas carol concert.
