Busy Bees is a privately owned professional high quality nursery school, established in 1983. Our aim is that all children succeed. Each child’s happiness is of paramount importance to our team of dedicated staff. We provide a warm, safe, caring environment which is an extension of the child’s family. We aim to make learning fun, meeting each child’s individual needs. We have excellent facilities indoor and out, with our own indoor heated swimming pool and qualified instructor. Outside we have a 10 acre organic farm where the children have so many valuable and enjoyable learning experiences. In addition we have our ‘Kids Club’ for children aged 5 – 12, where you are able to drop your children off early and we will take them to the designated local primary schools. We will collect them from school and let them snack, have fun and unwind, before you collect them on your way home. The ‘Kids Club’ also opens throughout all school holidays.
