Our Team



Busy Bees is managed by a small but dedicated committee of parents and carers, managing the setting’s finances and fundraising, overseeing the staff and ensuring the staff and children have all the resources they need.

Additional support from parents and the community is always appreciated so please contact us if you would like to get involved in the Busy Bees Committee or would like to help with fundraising.

What People Say About Busy Bees

Teaching is consistently good. The staff provide a wealth of interesting and creative activities which engage children well and help them to become confident learners. Excellent use is made of the outside area and the pre-schools rural location to enrich childrens learning.
All the staff and friendly and welcoming and have helped with toilet training and behaviour advice. They have encouraged her independence in all things.

Our daughter only goes once a week to Busy Bees but really loves her time there, whether in the hall with the varied play and learning equipment, or out at Forest School, where she learns about bugs and sticks and tells us about them when she comes home!

The termly themes help explore ideas about a range of topics and she has come home with lots of fun stories which we also get to see on Tapestry.


Busy bees is a wonderful child care provider in a fantastic setting. Debbie and her team are devoted to their jobs and are very experienced in what they do. My daughter was a very anxious soul and struggled with all other childcare settings but the busy bees staff worked with us to settle her and she ended up going 5 days a week with a smile on her face everyday. The staff are consistent with a very low turnover and all appear to love their jobs. They do a range of activities including forest school which is a real privilege for the children. I honestly couldn’t recommend Busy Bees more highly. I feel confident leaving my 2 year old with them now knowing that he will develop and grow in a positive environment with lots of stimulation and support. Thank you Busy Bees team.
I have had children at Busy Bees for the last 4 years and my third child will be joining soon. We love the gentle and caring staff that make our children feel nurtured. They give the children space to explore and learn and encourage independence, which is great. The forest school is an amazing, unique experience in a beautiful piece of woodland. Our children have loved the chance to hunt for bugs, climb trees and learn how to light a fire. A really lovely local preschool.
