From the Busy Bees Day Nursery at St Albans Hospital
We would like to extend an invitation to everyone to embody our values every day. Our values are essential convictions that serve as the basis for how we behave ourselves and how we operate.
We deliver great early years education while upholding the highest standards of care and safety.
Give every child a head start on school preparation by providing high-quality childcare and engaging learning opportunities.
In 1983, three families, all involved in care and education, decided to take matters into their own hands after they were left frustrated by the lack of quality childcare available for their children.
The Rocklands, the first Busy Bees nursery, debuted in Lichfield, Staffordshire, in March 1984.
Since then, Busy Bees has expanded to become the UK's largest childcare provider.
The original founders are still very much involved in the running of Busy Bees, and the standards of childcare they demanded, for their own children back then, are still enthusiastically preserved in every facility managed by Busy Bees.
Busy Bees has become synonymous with quality care, and adopts a practical child-centred approach, where children are respected as individuals and encouraged to learn and develop at their own pace within a home from home environment.
The needs of the individual child are paramount in all our childcare facilities, and Busy Bees work together to create initiatives, supply resources and provide outstanding care to ensure every childs interests, safety and happiness is central to everything we do.
