Welcome to Busy Bees Stotfold! Our nursery is based in a big redbrick building right at the heart of Stotfold. No two days are ever the same here – they’re always packed with excitement and opportunities for your child to thrive during their important early years. 

The nursery features large, light and airy rooms, which help to create a welcoming ‘home from home’ atmosphere for the children. These rooms are split into age groups: babies, toddlers and preschool children. This means the children can learn and play with others at a similar stage in their development journey. 

There’s always plenty to keep the children happy and engaged – from toys to help them with their fine motor skills to quiet corners, where they can read their favourite story books. We also have an outdoor space, where they can explore and learn about taking safe risks under the supervision of our nursery team. 

At Busy Bees, we look to nurture your child’s curiosity for learning. Our foundation class helps to prepare preschool children for the next big step in their journey – the move to primary school. Everything we do is tailored around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum too – to help your little one get the best start. We'll always keep you updated with their progress via our ParentZone app

"My son started nursery when he was 11 months old and since he has developed considerably. He loves going to nursery so much that when we drop him off he forgets about his mumma and dadda. It brings me joy knowing that he loves it there. All of the staff are super friendly, helpful and gives a brief summary of my toddler’s day. He is due to move into the next class when he turns 2 and I hope that he continues to have as much fun. Well done Busy Bees Stotfold, we love you! "
