"Staff friendly, caring and helpful in person, our child enjoys their days there and always seem happy at pick up, staff also call if there is an issue at drop off just to update later in the day. Email replies can take a while. We did have an issue earlier in the year but this was dealt with quickly by headoffice and we had a phone call back. "

"Takes great care of my child and she loves going. The only thing that could do with some improvement is communication and more conversations about my child’s development and progress. "

"My son loves going to nursery and loves his key person, Naomi. He will talk about her and the infamous Ginny all the time. It is lovely to see how much he has developed and grown up in the year he has been at Busy Bees. Laura and Kim in the office are always so welcoming, kind and helpful. A lovely nursery and would highly recommend! "
