Busy Bees Day nursery at Blythe Valley is a purpose built nursery nestled in the heart of 257 acres of beautiful parkland which is Blythe Valley.
We have a well established team at Solihull with some of the team having been here since we opened in 2001. On site we have 90% of our staff team who are qualified to NVQ level 3 or above, and we offer training for new staff to work towards level 2 and 3 through our apprentice programme.
Existing staff are able to access both Busy Bees and the local early years training which enables them to keep updating their knowledge and skills on current childcare issues and changes to policy.
Within the nursery the children are able to enjoy a variety of activities that builds around their interests, both indoor and outdoor with a large garden with wildlife, bird boxes and planting areas for the children to grow their own vegetables, herbs and fruit.
The children take part in Busy Bees enhancements including Babble to Chatter and Nurturing Problem Solving in Mathematics in all rooms and Wake and Shake for the over 2’s. The newly refurbished Foundation Class offers a stimulating classroom environment with state of the art ICT equipment and endless opportunities to explore. The older children are also able to extend their learning at home with a pre-reading scheme and home learning books.
Jo our chef and Michael the assistant provide healthy and nutritious meals for all the children, they cater for different dietary needs and the nursery has a 5 star rating from the local authority for excellent standards of food hygiene practices and procedures. Jo has also her Early Years Nutrition qualification from City & Guilds, and the nursery holds the Centre of Excellence award for catering within the Busy Bees Company.
The nursery has direct access to the major motorways to Birmingham, Coventry and Solihull, and just 2 minutes to the M40 to London. There is also a direct bus service from the park to Birmingham International. A key area of Blythe Valley is the countryside park which contains a rich mosaic of habitats around a nature trail, with reed beds to attract dragonflies and water birds to wildflower areas. We have bird and bat boxes attached to the trees around the nursery garden.
