Our Busy Bees nursery in Warton is a 'home-from-home', with a warm, friendly atmosphere where your child can thrive.  

Conveniently located by BAE Systems, Warton, we provide childcare for babies, toddlers, and preschool-age children throughout the week. 

Each age group has its own dedicated space within our nursery. We like to ensure children can develop at a pace that they're comfortable with. Having these separate spaces allows children to feel confident as they grow and learn alongside those at a similar stage in their development journey. 

Your child's day at our Warton nursery will never be boring! Our rooms are equipped with toys and resources designed to encourage little ones to become curious explorers. We have a large outdoor space, so they can have fun in the fresh air. There's always plenty to keep your child involved and engaged. 

We also prepare your child for their next big milestone - the move to full-time primary school education. All our activities are tailored around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. Our fully qualified teacher provides lots of exciting learning opportunities. 

You'll always be kept up to date with what your little one has been up to at our Warton preschool nursery. Our ParentZone app is regularly updated with individual milestones and achievements. You'll also have access to UP - our learning and development app. It's a brilliant resource you can use to continue your child's learning journey at home.
