Unlocking Curiosity

Home: Welcome

About Us

Since moving into our purpose built setting in 2010, we’ve focused on supporting children throughout their time at Busy Bees. All activities are designed to adequately nurture the emotional and intellectual growth of the children at our setting. We create this through stimulating environments that allow children to explore and create while being supported by dedicated early years educators. We believe all children should have the opportunity to develop their bright young minds and focus our learning through play and exploration. 
We originally started as a Pre-school based in two classrooms within Highfields primary school. As we grew in size we knew we needed to look at a larger premises and we began the journey to opening as a Kindergarten offering wrap around childcare. In September 2010 we opened our purpose built setting and were able to begin offering childcare from 3months old. We have continued to grow and have added a successful after school club - Bees after school.

At Busy Bees we believe it’s important that as a setting and early years educators we continuously strive to develop our nursery and be the very best we can be for the children attending our setting. 

Our ethos is a home from home setting that is child-led. We have created a homely and inviting environment that allows all children as well as our Tribe to explore and learn. As a setting we offer open ended play, created with loose parts and treasures. Our holistic ethos uses a mixture of well known theorists and pedagogy that has created a truly curious setting.

Parents review


Amazing setting. My son has thoroughly enjoyed his 2 years here. The staff and management have been great, he’s developed so well here and is more than ready for school. The link with Highfields is amazing as are the hot dinners they serve at lunchtimes. My son has multiple food allergies and the support and catering has been fantastic. Thankyou and we will miss you.
