Our son has settled in brilliantly, the staff are fab, dedicated and committed to their jobs, our son loves it here. The food is great, it has allowed our son to try food that we wouldn't have thought of! The volume of activities is perfect, it is enough to stop them being bored, but also repetitive so the children learn as well.

This nursery is fantastic and had become the most important stepping stone in our daughter's learning and development in early years education... Staff and surroundings are second to none and never pick up an unhappy girl always full of smiles.

My son thoroughly enjoys attending Busy Bees at Ryhope - the staff are all very good with him as he is a timid little boy. They have helped his confidence a lot. He has made some nice friends with the other children who attend.

Brilliant day care nursery, my children are very happy there and enjoy going! I also know that the staff here have really brought my little boys speech on.
Staff are always very helpful and friendly and are great with my little ones which puts my mind at ease. I can't recommend this nursery enough.

Thank you to the busy bees staff for all their hard work.

I cannot praise this nursery higher. It is fantastic, the time and effort they put into educating and nurturing the children. My 3-year-old loves coming to nursery and is developing life skills and communication skills quickly with the help of her key worker and staff.

My 2-year-old twin girls attend twice a week. It has brought them on so well regarding speaking. They are always a bit upset when I drop them off (it's the same when I leave them with family) but the staff are brilliant with them and have them settled within a couple of minutes. When I pick them up, they are always happily playing away. My girls now know all of the names of the staff and enjoy telling me about their day. There is lots for them to do and they have different areas to play in. My girls know all the nursery rhymes and actions that they have learnt from being at nursery. They are also helping them to learn how to get clothes on and shoes which help me out because with having twins, I don't always get that one on one time to show them how to do things when we are in a rush getting ready. I've only had positive experiences with Busy Bees and would highly recommend them to anyone.

We are extremely happy with the childcare we receive from Busy Bees. Our daughters have a love of learning and the staff put a lot of time and effort in the activities they do. When one of our daughters left for school, the reception teacher commented that she was very capable and could already write her name etc and we believe that's because of the great start at Busy Bees.
