Busy Bees Great Notley is a large children's day nursery rated Outstanding by Ofsted in June 2018 for the second time running. We take children from 6 weeks through to 5 years. We are a purpose built nursery, whereby we have free flow access into the garden from most rooms, allowing freedom of choice for all children on a daily basis. We had a garden refurbishment in 2017, giving the children an even better space to play in with lots of natural resources and an all weather surface to allow year round outdoor play. We have a foundation class for our 3-5 year olds. The Foundation Class nurtures each child's natural curiosity within a structured framework providing Pre school children with an early introduction to school life. Through a balance of formal teaching and child-initiated play.
Established by 3 families in 1984 Busy Bees is now the UK's largest childcare company with over 350 nurseries across the UK.
