If you're looking for a Sevenoaks day nursery to set your little one up for the best start in life, Busy Bees Riverhead might be the perfect place.

Formerly known as Squiggles Sevenoaks, our nursery provides plenty of space for children from zero to five to thrive every day they're with us. We have multiple rooms dedicated to each age group - babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers. Each room is equipped with age-appropriate learning toys, games and activities designed to help them learn all about the world around them.

We make sure your child has everything they need when they're with us. Meals and drinks, as well as nappies and wipes and formula milk, for younger children, are all included in your nursery fees.

No matter what your child enjoys, we have something for them - whether it's soft play shapes, puzzles they can challenge themselves with or craft tables where they can draw, paint, make and create to their heart's content. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework too, so all the activities are designed to prepare the children for primary school learning while allowing them to have fun.

Our nursery in Riverhead also benefits from having access to outdoor space. This means the children can get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air.
