Welcome to our nursery…
Busy Bees in Bishops Stortford Thorley park provides GOOD childcare, as reported by Ofsted, (2015). Busy Bees at Thorley Park is a purpose built, two storey building situated on the Sainsbury’s site in the middle of Thorley. The nursery is easily accessible by road and has a large car park available. It is about a 20 minute walk from the station in Bishop’s Stortford, 5 minutes by car.
The nursery has a “home from home” atmosphere holding 55 children in 4 rooms. All of the children have daily access to one of our garden areas. The pre-school children have been enjoying the Grow Your Own initiative planting and harvesting their own vegetables, before the best bit, eating them!!
We are proud of our staff team qualifications; the majority of our staff have their Level 3 Qualification with others working towards this qualification, our staff are also studying towards their higher level qualifications as well as Level 4 and Level 3 in leadership and management.
Our Head Chef Kim and her Assistant Diane prepare delicious food from our nutritionally balanced, healthy menu each day. The menu is based on a 4 week rolling programme and is designed to make the best of seasonal fruit and vegetables. We also have a robust system for catering for children with allergies, intolerances and cultural preferences. There is a vegetarian option with each meal.
The nursery has a parent partnership group which consists of 6 parents who meet periodically with the Manager and Assistant Manager to discuss how they would like to see the nursery move forward. New parents are always welcome to join us.
Busy Bees, Thorley Park’s staff team are committed to making every day an exceptional day for your child, with the highest standards locally. We would love to welcome you to our nursery, why not come for a visit? We look forward to seeing you soon.
