Busy Bees Childcare is the largest UK day nursery provider with its own National Support Centre that allows professionals to draw on an extensive range of expertise. The Busy Bees commitment has always been to support children in getting the best start to life, thanks to fun and stimulating play environments where they can pick up new skills and abilities. Robust recruitment and training procedures keep standards high and draws the most committed individuals to the company's portfolio. The business has gone from strength to strength since being formed in 1983, which occurred because owners found a lack of quality childcare available to them. Children are supported in learning and developing at their own pace, with parents kept up with progress.
