Busy Bees Walthamstow is a purpose-built nursery all on one level with 11 bright, airy, spacious childcare rooms. Each room has direct access to their own safe, secure, large outdoor area providing ample learning opportunities for the children to explore the great outdoors developing their confidence, physical skills, and self-esteem.

Parent partnerships are very important to us here at nursery to provide a strong relationship between home and nursery life. With this we have a parent partnership group where parents and nursery staff come together on various topics working together with the children at the forefront of everything we do.

Home learning bags are available to borrow. We provide you with an activity, the resources to carry this out at home asking you to document this in the book provided so we can incorporate your child’s interests into our planning at nursery.
