Busy Bees nursery is a large purpose built facility in the grounds of the University of Salford, featuring eight large playrooms, leading from a large central play area.
Here at the nursery we provide a varied menu and cater for various dietary requirements. We have an onsite qualified chef and use lots of vegetable and herbs grown in our kitchen garden by the children.
We are happy to have retained our 5 star rating from our Environmental Health Inspection 2014.
Busy Bees at Salford University is a large nursery with most of its staff being qualified either to level 3 or above or working towards their level 3 qualification.
For the second year running we have achieved a green rating through our “We are Clean” audit that is done by Salford City Council, we are very proud to say we got a full 100%.
We also received our tooth healthy certificate for the second year running, where the children learn to brush their teeth in nursery and support the children to understand good oral hygiene.â€‹
