Welcome to our nursery...
Busy Bees Day Nursery at Solihull Blythe is a purpose-built nursery nestled in the heart of the 257 acres of beautiful parkland that is Blythe Valley. The surrounding countryside park, which contains a rich mosaic of habitats around a nature trail, provides the nursery with natural shade and shelter all year round. Blythe Valley is a developing area which makes the nursery central to both business and residential areas and due to its prime location has direct access to major motorways links to Birmingham, Coventry, and Solihull, as well as being just 2 minutes to the M40 junction to London. There is also a direct bus service from the park to Birmingham International Station and Solihull Town Centre.
The nursery itself is a single storey building that comprises of five base rooms - two Baby Rooms, two Toddler Rooms and a Foundation Class for pre-school children. The children take part in a variety of different learning opportunities and activities, all tailor made to meet their individual interests. Staff have access to the exclusive Unleashing Potential (UP) app which they use to enhance the learning opportunities they provide for the children; and within UP are the exciting 'Up and Active with Buzz' and 'Safety with Buzz' programmes. The Foundation Class offers a stimulating classroom environment with 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.
We have a well-established team here at nursery, with some long running staff having worked here since we opened in 2001. On site, over 90% of our staff team are qualified to NVQ level 3 or above, and we offer staff the opportunity to start an apprenticeship or achieve higher qualifications through the Busy Bees Training Academy. As well as this, Jo and Charlotte, our chef and assistant chef, provide healthy and nutritious meals for all the children, catering for different dietary and cultural requirements. The nursery has a 5-star rating from the local authority for excellent standards of food hygiene practices and procedures.
