Glowing reviews from parents and Ofsted alike prove that Busy Bees Thurmaston is the perfect place if you're looking for childcare in Leicestershire. We provide daycare for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Our large building features multiple childcare rooms, each designed for a different age group. This means your child can play, discover, and ultimately thrive alongside children of a similar age. Each room is decorated in soothing colours to create a welcoming environment where the children can feel comfortable.

We know just how important it is for children to feel active and engaged. That's why the team at our nursery are always planning fun activities for the children to get involved in. Whether your child loves to sit and read from their favourite storybooks or use construction toys to build something new and exciting - we like to ensure your child gets to do the activities they enjoy most.

Our Thurmaston nursery also has access to outdoor space. So, there's always the opportunity for the kids to get out, which is something our nursery team actively encourages to allow the children to enjoy some fresh air. They’ll also be able to learn a little more about nature in our popular sensory garden.

Come and see our Thurmaston nursery for yourself by booking your visit today. We can't wait to meet you!
