40 Years of Busy Bees

Busy Bees Staff

The friendly atmosphere in our centres emanates from the warm and caring relationships between our nursery teams and the children in their care. The individuals that make up our teams are passionate and strive to deliver the very best care for every child. Recognising that children learn by example and observation, our teams always show courtesy, patience, and mutual respect.

Safety and security is our priority, and we recruit all our staff according to a robust safer recruitment process. All our people receive continuous Busy Bees training in all aspects of child development, as well as health and safety, food hygiene, and paediatric first aid, to ensure your child receives the highest standards of care.

Key Person

Every child at Busy Bees is assigned a key person – their own special member of our team. It’s an approach that sets us apart and is key to our child-centred care. The special relationship your child develops with their key person will help them feel cherished and secure – giving you peace of mind, too.

We’ll assign your child their key person even before they start at nursery, so that from day one there’s someone ready to support you both. The key person will be there for the settling in process, so you’ll know your child will have a dedicated person who fully understands their care and their learning and development needs.

Your child’s key person will keep you fully up-to-date with their progress at nursery. At the end of each day, you’ll know about the activities your child has done, what they’ve had to eat and drink, and what they’ve enjoyed most – so you don’t miss out on any part of their development.

As well as ensuring your child is developing and learning according to the Early Years framework, we’ll record special moments such as kindness towards others or eating something for the first time, and your child’s spontaneous reactions to new events and activities. Everything is captured in their unique learning journal, enabling you to look back on your child’s time at nursery for years to come.

There’s no need to worry about continuity. Each key person is paired with a ‘buddy’ who they make fully aware of your child’s needs and who can step in if they are absent or on holiday.
