Busy Bees Wigan Marylebone is an outstanding nursery.  We have a very long serving staff team who all go above and beyond for our children.

The nursery has 3 spacious rooms for children aged 3 months to 5 years. All the rooms are large and arranged to offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment, to enable them to learn the skills they need to develop into confident, happy children.

We are located on Walkden Avenue, close to Wigan Town Centre and the 2 local colleges. There is a direct bus route situated 50 yards from the nursery and there are great links for commuting parents.

We get more parents and children joining us through recommendations than any other method!

"I first came to busy bees in 2019 after my first little girl Florence was born. i work at the hospital and busy bees is around the corner which is ideal for drop off and pick up. i was apprehensive, nervous and had that mum guilt feeling for putting her into nursery. But from the first visit every member of staff put me at ease and made it a lot easier to hand her over in a morning as they were always doing something fun . it was hard at first as Florence had a bit of separation anxiety for the few fee weeks but after that she was great. she built up great relationships with her Key workers Kira, Joanne , Hayley, Laura, Vickey throughout her time at busy bees and is now in Reception at School and is flourishing with all the social and educational activities that they do. Now my second little girl Ruby was born during lockdown 2021 and she started busy bees in 2022 and for her nursery is the best time of the week. she absolutely loves nursery from day one, she walks into nursery and doesn’t look back when you drop her off. she has great relationships with everyone in baby room especially her key worker Kira but she’s friends with everyone and she makes everyone smile as she’s like a little parrot repeating words she hears. she loves playing in the water and on the slide especially. The staff are also so thoughtful as my father in law died a few months ago and i spoke to nursery as my husband was off work and wasn’t picking ruby up from nursery much so they sat down with Ruby and hand made lovely thoughtful cards with her for my husband to cheer him up which it did, they always make cards for family members birthdays and special occasions with Ruby which i think is so thoughtful . i’ve had nothing but positive experiences with Busy bees and Florence and Ruby have loved spending days having lots of fun and learning. i would recommend this nursery to anyone "
