Looking for childcare in Ewloe to help set your little one up for the best start in life? Busy Bees St David’s Park may just be the perfect place! 

At our large nursery, just a stone's throw from the village's centre, we deliver childcare for babies, toddlers and preschool-age children. Our childcare rooms are light, airy and spacious, which creates a welcoming atmosphere where children are free to learn and have fun. We have separate spaces for each age group too - allowing them to develop at a pace they’re comfortable with. 

We pride ourselves on keeping the kids happy and engaged. Our preschool in Ewloe is packed with learning toys, activities and books designed to spark imaginations and foster a desire to learn. All of our staff follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, which helps to gradually prepare your little one for the transition to full-time primary school education. 

The nursery also has access to secure outdoor space. Here, the children are free to have fun in the fresh air. Whether it's playing in the sandpit or learning about taking safe risks under supervision on the slide - there's always fun to be had. 

You'll always be able to keep up to date with what your child has been up to with us - via our free ParentZone app. You'll have access to our UP app too, which is great for supporting your child's learning at home.

"The team at Busy Bees St David’s have been an absolute dream and credit to your business. They’ve worked through a very difficult two years with children who have been born into a world which has seen the wearing of face masks and restrictions. The team continued to make the children feel welcomed and the parents included even though this has been via drop off and pick up at the door. They are friendly and welcoming. Wonderful! "
