"I wish I could rate busy bees southport higher, fantastic nursery who genuinely care about your child and overall happiness/wellbeing "

"The staff here are so friendly and amazing at what they do. My daughter loves her time here and she learns so much while she is there. All the nursery staff ensure that her day is varied, so she spends time inside and out and activities aren’t repeated during the same week to keep her engaged. They also tailor learning to her preference and keep me updated via an app. I couldn’t ask for more!"
