Welcome to our nursery...

At Busy Bees Sandy Day Nursery and Preschool, Bedfordshire 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 Busy Bees Sandy, Bedfordshire 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.

Outstanding Childcare in Sandy

Busy Bees at  Sandy, Bedfordshire has been awarded Outstanding status three times by governing body, Ofsted. Our beautiful one storey nursery and preschool is located on a tree-lined drive in a quiet residential area of Sandy. We are located in the same grounds as Sandy Upper School and Community Sports College with our own self-contained entrance accessed by a gravel drive.

We enjoy good road networks and transport links for commuting parents including a bus stop serving Bedford and surrounding areas. Sandy train station with Great Northern services to Peterborough and London’s Kings Cross is a short 6-minute drive away.

Sandy’s First Choice For Nursery Education

A quiet location, ample resources and a passionate and highly qualified team are just a few of the reasons that parents choose Busy Bees Sandy, Bedfordshire Nursery and Preschool over other childcare settings.

Children at Busy Bees Sandy enjoy a stimulating curriculum devised in line with the EYFS statutory framework. Our rooms are bright and airy and enjoy a cosy home-from-home feel, designed to settle and relax babies and children into the nursery environment.

Our passionate childcare team delivers a programme of activities and experiences to navigate children through key childhood milestones. From arts and crafts, messy play and sensory play to home corner and role play there’s lots to do to challenge enquiring minds.

Though fun is the order of the day every day we begin to gently introduce more structure in our preschool rooms and deliver the foundations you’d expect for lifelong learning – phonics, literacy and elemental mathematics plus key social skills to help your little ones become confident and independent.

Outstanding Preschool Education

Preschool education is an important consideration for many families and when you choose Treetops Sandy you can be confident that our highly-trained and motivated staff will do everything they can to maximise the potential of your child, preparing them for ‘big school’ and the educational adventure ahead.

We instil good manners and social skills at every available opportunity and strive to develop confident, happy little people. Our preschool children tend to go on to Maple Tree Lower School, Laburnum Lower School, Robert Peel Lower School and St Swithuns VC Lower school.

Our links to schools stretch as far as Cambridgeshire and Bedford Borough and we are always extending invitations to feeder schools every year.  For us transitions are so important, you are a big part of this too.  With our seamless transitions and our regular updates you will be part of every step of your child’s journey to ‘Big School.’

Outdoor Learning

Our setting means we enjoy a large garden with separate under 2’s and over 2’s areas for safe play and exploration.

We also recognise the importance of getting out and about in the community and exploring the world around us. We visit Sandy Hills and enjoy visits to nearby Maple Tree and Bedford Road Parks along with regular visits to the local library for Rhyme Time.
