Busy Bees Ryhope Village nursery is an OUTSTANDING purpose built nursery situated within Ryhope Village between St Paul’s School and Ryhope Engines Museum. We provide high quality childcare for children from birth to 5 years old. We have a total of 4 rooms which offer childcare for different age ranges. With the addition of a dining room, which our older children use for lunch and tea. All rooms have their very own gardens too. Within in each room we have a key worker system in which each child is given a key person. The key person is responsible for your child’s daily care and education needs, ensuring your child progresses and achieves their full potential and is most importantly happy and settled, ready to learn.
