We believe in an uncomplicated approach to childcare – striving to make parent’s lives easier wherever possible. So, if employees have less to worry about at home, they will undoubtedly feel better and work more productively.
What’s even better, is that with leading childcare by Busy Bees at Work, you’ll save your employees much-needed time, money, and energy — and show them their wellbeing matters to you.
There's no team quite like yours, so there's no one-size-fits-all with Busy Bees at Work. We have an expert team who are dedicated in finding the best solutions when it comes to childcare for employers, and will work with you to create a bespoke company childcare package that perfectly suits your workplace. Depending on the size and nature of your business, it could include one, or some, of these services.
So, what is a workplace nursery, and what do Busy Bees do?
Your employees could enjoy dedicated workplace childcare, with your very own managed nursery. It might be in your company HQ, or just off premises - wherever you need it, we'll set up staff, resources and manage the entire thing.
There are many ways we can help manage this partnership with you, offering several financial models to suit your situation. For example, we can devise partnerships where you cover the initial investment, then pay an annual management fee, or we cover the initial investment and agree a profit share or child place contributions. The variety of financial opportunities means offering workplace childcare is achievable for a range of companies.
Whether you'd like it to be a company-exclusive workplace day nursery or be open to the public, talk to us to work out what's best for you.
Make your team's childcare more affordable with our special Partner Fees. It is a commitment that could save your workforce both money and stress, all handled in our user friendly parent enrolment process. Simplifying the process will take a weight off your employee’s minds, and will likely become one of their favourite workplace benefits.
With almost 400 nurseries spread across the UK and Ireland, it could be that there is already a nursery close to your workplace. If that's the case, make your employee’s lives easier by reserving spaces at your chosen nursery. Employees will consider this a well-thought out commitment to all staff or returning parents.
We understand that life can be unpredictable with children, and things don't always go to plan. With exclusive emergency childcare through Pebble, your team can book extra, ad hoc sessions at our nurseries in a matter of minutes. So, if shift patterns change, back-up plans can be made with just a few taps on the app. No stress, no fuss, and no need to make frantic phone calls or miss important commitments - all thanks to childcare for employers through Busy Bees.
Your employees will love our childcare. There are so many reasons to add company childcare to your benefits, and even more reasons to choose Busy Bees at Work.
Workplace childcare looks brilliant on your job descriptions. When yours comes from Busy Bees, the UK's leading nursery group, it makes your job descriptions more desirable than ever.
We’re sure you’ll have an exceptional team of staff. Busy Bees' workplace childcare is simply an extension of that and will set you apart from competitors, giving your employees even more reasons to stay.
By making childcare simpler and more affordable, you'll relieve unrequired worries from your employees, leading to lower stress and happier (and more productive) staff.
Statistics show that women are twice as likely than men to miss work due to problems with childcare. By offering reliable, flexible, convenient care, you’ll ensure they don’t miss out.
Offering workplace childcare could not be simpler. Your organisation will have its own dedicated landing page which employees can access directly to arrange the hours of childcare they require.
For us to make arranging childcare for employers as simple as possible, we limit the amount of paperwork required. The main piece of administration will be to keep Busy Bees at Work up to date with active employees.
Sadly, we are unable to extend the offer to wider family, and a parent, spouse or partner must be directly employed in order to utilise the workplace childcare.
Unfortunately, salary sacrifice is only available to companies with a workplace nursery.
Communication is key in ensuring businesses run smoothly. To keep you informed, we will send you a quarterly report which shows which employees are using the childcare for employer’s benefit.
Levels of subsidisation depend entirely on your company and what you can afford. There is no limit, and we can adjust the levels to suit your preferences.
Again, there is no limit to the number of employees making use of the workplace nursery benefit, meaning you can offer this out to all employees within the business.
No, only the overall agreement is with the employer. The childcare arrangement and fees are connected to the parents themselves and it’s their responsibility to make payment.
If an employee was to leave the business, they would lose their discount and workplace nurseries would give them notice of this change. We would agree a mechanism of sharing active employees.
A child's early years are so important. As the UK's leading childcare and nursery provider we know this better than anybody, and nobody does more to make those years count. With almost 400 nurseries spread across the UK and Ireland, we've become well-known for our enriching learning opportunities and warm, nurturing environments. There's simply no one better offering childcare for employers.
