We know how important your child’s safety, development and preschool education is to you. That’s why every child at Busy Bees West Ealing is assigned their very own key carer to ensure that we can provide you and your little ones with continuous assessment and the very best in quality childcare.
West Ealing’s First Choice for Childcare
Busy Bees at West Ealing comprises of two buildings tucked neatly away from the busy main roads of Ealing in Green Mans passage, off West Ealing High Street.
Each building is a modern, ground-level only, purpose-built unit with its very own outdoor space. The passionate and committed childcare team care for children under 2 in the dedicated baby unit and the over 2’s in the Busy Bees at West Ealing Day Nursery.
We are within easy access of public transport services, including local bus routes and West Ealing mainline station is a short 4-minute walk away. Commuting parents also have the choice of Ealing Broadway underground station, just over 1 mile away. Ealing Broadway shopping centre is also conveniently located just over one mile away offering a range of shops and amenities.
Most of our parents live in the local neighbourhood and walk to the nursery but those driving can use the nearby Waitrose car park on Alexandra Road before 9am and after 5:30pm. Metered parking is also available on nearby streets and there are four spaces on Connaught Road where parking is permitted for 1 hour without charge at any time.
We offer free stay and play sessions every Friday from 10-11 am in both units.
Dedicated Baby Nursery
Babies at Busy Bees West Ealing Nursery are eased into nursery life in their very own home-from-home environment, a space designed to imitate the living spaces in your own home. Our childcare experts find that this helps to familiarise babies and relax parents, making the settling-in period easier for all. Secure bonds with key workers are developed here through cuddles and reassurance and a variety of sensory experiences are offered to support growth and development.
As our babies develop into toddlers they can enjoy an open plan space to challenge their physical development and there’s plenty of time for rhyme time, water play, singing and the exciting activities we offer to comply with the EYFS statutory framework. Here the Early Years team focuses on communication and early language, literacy and numeracy skills.
Also Good to Know
We very much see ourselves as a community nursery at Busy Bees West Ealing and we make sure that the children are exposed to their surroundings and the world around them. We enjoy weekly visits to the library and nearby parks and trips to the local train station and fire station to consolidate learning themes like transport.
Learning for the Over 2’s
Our Day Nursery for over 2’s benefits from the same combination of child-led and creative play and as our blooming toddlers begin to move through to the preschool curriculum we begin to gently introduce a little more structure and routine. This school readiness approach to get our youngsters ready for the next step in their exciting learning journeys – ‘big school’.
Our designated areas in the bright, open plan room are well-resourced with equipment and materials to help developing minds progress literacy and writing skills, mathematical and problem-solving skills and technology too.
We incorporate fun into everything we do and strive to maximise the potential of every child in our care by providing an individual approach to learning.
