Welcome to Busy Bees’ Selly Oak nursery! This big building is the place where we set children up for the very best start in life. It’s split out into three areas, so children can be around others at a similar stage in their development. We have Bombo’s Room for babies, Bumble’s Room for toddlers, and Buzz’s Room for pre-schoolers. Each of these rooms is spacious, light, and decorated in soft, soothing colours.

Our nursery staff take a nurturing approach to learning – the aim is to fully unleash your child’s potential. So, this means giving them plenty of opportunities to get involved in fun and engaging activities. All of our rooms are equipped with toys that allow little ones to learn while having fun – whether it’s sand and water play tables, the dinosaur play mat or rattles that encourage fine motor skill development.

Here, at Busy Bees, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. With this, we help to prepare your child for the next big chapter in their life – primary school. Want to see what your little one has been learning at our Selly Oak nursery? Just download our Parent Zone app.

We also like to get the kids out and enjoying the great outdoors. Like our nursery’s rooms, this space is split into age groups. Each area features age-appropriate toys and obstacles, such as balance beams, seesaws and a racetrack. They’re there to allow the kids to challenge themselves and learn about taking risks in a safe and secure environment.
