is for Caterpillars (0-1 year)

As babies we develop faster than at any other time in our lives.

In the first year, the excitement of sound, sight and touch will be accompanied by a series of extra special firsts ...including walking.

Our fully qualified staff provide expert care and encouragement every step along the way as your child grows. We aim to provide a gentle, loving environment in a homely atmosphere.

learning through play will help develop confidence and skills in this formative year and at Busy Bears the staff provide a wealth of experience to respond to children's natural curiosity.

is for Ladybirds (1-1½ years)

Babies curiosity knows no bounds as they become mobile and able to explore the wider world around them.

Busy Bears provides a safe, interactive environment which aims to encourage babies to explore and build confidence in their abilities. Our staff work to compliment the relationship that exists between parent and child and we actively encourage parents to be involved in the day car we provide.

is for Butterflies (1½-2 years)

Babies blossom between 15 months and 2 years as they begin the transition from baby to toddler.

Each child's character becomes more distinct and their capacity for speech and learning grows tenfold over the next 9 months.

At Busy Bears we encourage the children to express themselves through inactive play and gentle learning, building on the confidence and skill levels already achieved.

Daily activities are designed to help the children become aware of the wider world both within the nursery and out in the local environment on supervised walks.

is for Honeys (2-3 years)

Every child is an individual.

At Busy Bears we allow youngsters to develop at their own pace and explore the special delights of discovering the world around them.

Settling in can be a difficult period and parents are welcome to attend sessions to liaise with staff and help build up their child's confidence.

In the caring and happy environment of Busy Bears, children will be involved in all aspects of development and our carefully planned programmes will encourage the growth of confident secure individuals.

is for Bumbles (3-4 years)

At Busy Bears we pride ourselves on our ability to enable the children in our care to achieve the education goals as set out by the Department of Education. These are constantly being updated by the Government and our staff are always fully trained to implement new guidelines.

The nursery offers a secure and fun environment for the children to learn through play. Children at this stage are now eagerly seeing information about all the exciting aspects of their rapidly expanding world. They learn from their new experiences which teach them to try out new things, ask questions, and generally further their overall learning experience.

While the children are with us at Busy Bears the emphasis is on play in a safe and loving environment, which in turn is conductive to learning.

We anticipate that our children will make the transition from nursery to school with ease.

is for Dragonflies (5-11 years)

Our Dragonflies have already flown nursery but are always keen to return! The same love and attention will be given to our 5-11 years olds during those long school holidays.

We provide a wide range of both indoor and outdoor equipment to ensure children have fun during their time at nursery. Homework support, where required, is available together with leisure time activities.

All meals/snacks are included but most importantly we provide care in a safe and secure environment with fantastic facilities in which your child can play and learn

is for Sensory Room

To create an opportunity for children to discover and explore their sensory skills this room has been designed to cover touch, sight and sound. The room both stimulates the child by way of exploration and affords a sense of relaxation. It is within our two year old play space but is operated in a manner to ensure that all age groups benefit.
