Welcome to our nursery...

Busy Bees in Reading Woodley has been established since 2000, it is a purpose built single storey nursery ideally located for easy access to M4 motorway, Junction 10.

Our nursery has a ‘home from home’ feel to the environment with bright, welcoming and spacious rooms. We have a low turnover of staff so the children really get to know their carers. Our staff are dedicated into giving your child the best start in life and take regular training opportunities with Busy Bees to ensure the education, well-being and safety of your child.

At nursery we provide regular extra-curricular activities and also implement specially designed initiatives into the nursery. Your child will get involved and learn about the importance of healthy eating and growing their own food with the ‘Grow your Own’ initiative. All children will get involved in fun physical activities. We are all about improving the development at an early age with our Busy Babies initiative by introducing special areas for enhancing their senses.

Here at Busy Bees we also have good relationships with the local community, we like to get involved with what is happening locally, improving our relationships with parents, carers and local schools.

We hold stay and play sessions every Tuesday 10 – 11am, where you can experience what we do at nursery, you can also be shown around the nursery to see what we can offer.

I started sending my children here in February 2020 and the team there has been so kind and helpful and have had no reason to complain at all! Since lockdown has happened there has been a few problems on my part with work as I thought I was going back, so...
