Welcome to our nursery...

Busy Bees at West Suffolk is a purpose built nursery opened in August 2010. It is set in a peaceful wooded area in the grounds of West Suffolk hospital, We have bright spacious rooms, specially designed for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers, all have access to a garden which is well equipped with lovely toys and equipment. The nursery is ideally located, with safe drop off parking, and well signposted from the front of the hospital.

Each day your child will experience lots of exciting activities, in a secure and happy environment. At the end of each day you will be given in depth feedback of your child’s day at nursery. Nappies and wipes are provided for all who need them within nursery.

Over the past eighteen months we have implemented several of the Busy Bees initiatives, that are created by our childcare team at The National Support Centre, these include, Busy Babies for our Bluebells room and Our Imagination station for Caterpillars.

We have a dedicated staff team who hold a range of qualifications from a degree in childcare to level 2 and 3, and also staff working towards their qualifications.

All meals are cooked on the premises by our staff of chefs, these are healthy and nutritious, and we also offer a weaning menu for our little babies.
