Busy Bees at West Suffolk is a purpose-built nursery opened in August 2010. It is set in a peaceful wooded area in the grounds of West Suffolk hospital, We have bright spacious rooms, specially designed for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers, all have access to a garden which is well equipped with lovely toys and equipment. The nursery is ideally located, with safe drop off parking, and well signposted from the front of the hospital.

Each day your child will experience lots of exciting activities, in a secure and happy environment. At the end of each day, you will be given in-depth feedback on your child’s day at nursery. Nappies and wipes are provided for all who need them within the nursery.

Over the past eighteen months, we have implemented several of the Busy Bees initiatives, that are created by our childcare team at The National Support Centre, these include, Busy Babies for our Bluebells room, Our Imagination station for Caterpillars, and Wake and Shake for our Butterfly room.

We have a dedicated staff team who hold a range of qualifications from a degree in childcare to level2 and 3, and also staff working towards their qualifications.

All meals are cooked on the premises by our staff of chefs, these are healthy and nutritious, and we also offer a weaning menu for our little babies.

In 1983, three families, all involved in care and education, decided to take matters into their own hands after they were concerned by the lack of quality childcare available for their children.

In March 1984, the first Busy Bees nursery, ‘The Rocklands,’ was opened in Lichfield, Staffordshire. Since then, Busy Bees has grown to become the largest provider of childcare in the UK, with 250 nurseries across the country.

The original founders are still very much involved in the running of Busy Bees, and the standards of childcare they demanded their own children back then are still enthusiastically preserved in every Busy Bees’ nursery.

Here at Busy Bees, we are committed to giving every child the best start in life.

We deliver high-quality childcare and exciting opportunities for learning that give every child a head start as they prepare for school
