About Us

We cater for six distinct age groups which we categorise as: Caterpillars (0-1 year); Ladybirds (1-1½ year) Butterflies (1½-2 years); Honeys (2-3 years); Little Bumbles (3 years); Big Bumbles (4 years). The dragonflies (5-11 years) are our grown ups who enjoy our excellent Holiday Club.

We believe in working in partnership with parents to assist their children to explore the world around them and develop their potential as individuals

Our Team

Busy Bears is staffed by experienced and fully qualified dedicated professionals.

Our center is run by a manager and deputy both with full training and extensive experience of looking after children in a day care environment.

The nursery is divided into six distinct units to cater for the 0-1 years, 1-1½ years, 1½- 2 years, 2-3 years, 3 years, 4 years and 5-11 years with each unit being supervised by a senior qualified nursery practitioner and a second in charge.

All staff at Busy Bears are committed to creating a loving, happy and stimulating environment which responds to the needs of enthusiastic and inquisitive individuals.

Our staff will maintain learning journey books for each child under five years of age which will show the progress made during their time at Busy Bears. These records are available for parents to look through and discuss with staff at any time.
