Welcome to our nursery...

A Very Warm Welcome to our Outstanding Centre, Busy Bees Wellington Road

Our experienced Centre Director is proud of his amazing and dedicated team of Superhero Practitioners – adding an element of diversity and rich learning opportunities for our children is at the heart of what we do.  Our caring and highly skilled team cater for children aged 12 weeks up to the age of 5 across individual rooms, specifically designed to provide tailored, age and stage-appropriate activities and experiences. 

The Centre Director and his team’s passion for childcare is evident in everything they do, and the parents comment on the welcoming, homely feel at our nursery. Some of the team have families themselves and the parents find this practical experience reassuring. The team use these experiences to ensure that we can be the best we can be.

Stunning Centre near Cheltenham Town…

Busy Bees Wellington Road sits in a stunning, characterful Georgian converted house just under a mile from the town centre, with grand entrance and large open spaces for the children to learn, grow and develop.

We enjoy a convenient location just off the main Wellington Road and close to the beautiful Pitville Park. Many of our parents walk to Busy Bees Wellington Road but for those driving we are well positioned for the A40 and M5 motorway. There is also a bus stop directly outside the nursery served by routes into Cheltenham town centre and residential areas like Prestbury. Limited on-street, metered parking is available outside the nursery.

An Individual Approach to Learning…

Here at Busy Bees Wellington Road, we take an individual approach to every child who comes into our Centre, monitoring their progress and development in line with the EYFS statutory framework. A combination of child-led play and structured, teacher led learning helps to maximise the potential of each child in our care.

We deliver a programme of stimulating and exciting activities from messy play, sensory play, role play to the pre-school introduction of phonics, literacy, and mathematics – we’ve got every age and stage of childcare covered to ensure that each little one can reach their full potential with us in a stimulating, safe and exciting environment.

We also offer extra-curricular activities including gymnastics, dance, and Yoga for our children. We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That is why every child at Busy Bees Wellington Road, is assigned their very own Key Person to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with the very best in quality childcare.

Outdoor Learning at Wellington Road…

The great outdoors is an important part of learning for growing children and is also a great way to expend energy, explore nature, the elements, and the world around us. Children at Wellington Road enjoy a spacious garden area with a wide range of resources for physical and mental development.

We also aim to broaden horizons by making sure the team and our children get out and about in the community. It is a great way to consolidate themes taught in nursery and teaches confidence and independence in the outside environment. We enjoy being able to visit the nearby parks to feed the ducks, the local library for special story time and baby bounce and rhyme sessions. This allows the children to develop a real sense of community and learn about the world in which they live.

Delicious, Nutritious Meals…

Educating children about healthy eating and nutrition is also important here at Wellington Road, we are lucky to have a fantastic Centre Chef on site to prepare deliciously tasty meals fresh everyday whilst catering to dietary and religious needs. The children are fully involved in aspects of the cooking here at Wellington Road and are given opportunities to become Master Bakers or Young Chefs.

We look forward to meeting you soon and our Centre Director cannot wait to show you around his wonderful Centre and meet the team here at Cheltenham Wellington Road.
