    My daughter has been attending Busy Bees since she was 16 months old. I had to leave the previous nursery near work as she didn’t like it and after 4 months was still not settling in and was crying every day. She totally settled down here after two weeks. There is something special about Busy Bees! The staff are all very warm, welcoming, and friendly. My daughter gets on with everyone and is always, ALWAYS smiling every day I collect her! As a mother, it’s very comforting to know she has been well looked after and basically having a blast every day! She was off almost two weeks during Xmas and couldn’t wait to return in the new year. She’s been going for two whole years now and absolutely loves it. I’m so glad she’s made many friends here and enjoys herself all the time. They don’t just play aimlessly but have a variety of learning topics, welcome and include parents’ feedback, and are constantly trying to improve. Very impressed and would definitely recommend.

    Busy Bees in Teddington is a lovely nursery with fantastic staff who really care for the children. Our boy has been going from the age of 1 year old, for the last 9 months and he always walks in excitedly. They provide plenty of fun activities and ways of learning and a great variety of food.

    As a first time mum going back to work seemed quite daunting especially during a pandemic. Teddington nursery have been so kind and understanding. Even though many government restrictions haven’t allowed for us as parents to enter the building, the staff have been amazing at communicating both positive things and also encouraging things we can work on together both at home and in the nursery. The app is also an amazing tool and allows you to see the ‘wow’ moments your child has had that day. I also have a stepdaughter who doesn’t attend the nursery, however, has had a recent diagnosis of autism and ADHD and they have given extra help, advice and support on what we can do to help the relationship between my son and his half-sister out of their own kindness and care for young children. Overall a lovely nursery. I’ve always felt comfortable and safe sending my son here and would recommend it to anyone.

    My two year old has been at Busy Bees, Teddington for one year now and I have been really impressed with the care and attention from the staff. My child’s onboarding and settling into the nursery was very personal and attentive and the staff are always friendly, helpful and willing to give you their time. It is clear my child has lots of fun when they are there. They always come back full of beans.

    A big thank you to all the staff at the Busy Bees’ Teddington branch including management staff/key workers/chef, the parent app service and the invoicing team. My wife and I are very pleased with the progress our son has made since he was 8 months old (now 3 and a half) moving through each room in the nursery and all the development milestones he has met during this time. The staff have been amazing in their level of care and support in meeting his needs and offering advice when sort to help us manage what he has learnt in the nursery so that we are in sync at home. The nursery itself is very spacious and bright from visits we have made in 2019 and now allowed back again in 2022 due to restrictions lifting, and is set in a lovely location. I am always pleasantly surprised when my son comes home to tell me his day and to see what new activities he has carried out and learned. I highly recommend this nursery, I have peace of mind knowing my son is safe and in trusted hands.

    Our son attends Busy Bees Teddington and he is always excited to be going to the nursery to see his friends and the staff. The nursery has really helped his confidence, his language and social skills development. The staff are always responsive and consider suggestions for improvements. His siblings will be starting there later in the year.

    My daughter has been at Busy Bees, Teddington since last August. She absolutely loves it and waves us off every morning and runs out with a huge smile when we pick her up! The staff are all absolutely lovely and have a great bond with the children.

    Our two-year-old attends Busy Bees and has done since she was ten months old. She settled in very quickly and has lots of fun doing activities and spending time in the garden. The staff are great, very welcoming and friendly, and clearly enjoy working with the children. The centre management has been very supportive and helpful whenever I have had any questions or concerns about development.

    Our son has been at Busy Bees from 10 months and it has been like a second home for him. The staff are very friendly and approachable and get to know the children really well. The children take part in a wide variety of activities every day and our son particularly enjoyed the Head Start programme that was offered at a small additional cost. During Covid, drop off and pick up were sometimes a bit slow, but that has improved with many parents now able to return into the nursery for collection.
    Our son has always felt safe and happy at Busy Bees and I am so grateful to the staff for their continued hard work in taking great care of him.

    My daughter has been at Busy Bees for almost 2 years and we couldn’t be happier with her care. All of the nursery staff are so caring and they feel like one big family. I love that the staff members from the other rooms also know my daughter and she has really strong relationships with several of the staff members. I’ve also always been very impressed with the management team at the nursery. I recommend the nursery highly and I feel like they really strive to develop my daughter and prepare her for school.

    Busy Bees has been great, and since my son started at one and now when he is in pre-school. The staff are friendly and kind, and there is a really nice atmosphere about the place. The nursery is managed very well – any concerns or issues are addressed immediately, and they are very willing to help. Any extra support needed is identified and offered, and he has really thrived. He is excited to go and comes back tired but happy, having been kept busy with lots of fun activities. I feel very confident with the staff at Busy Bees caring for my son and would recommend it to anyone.

    My son has been attending Busy Bees since he was fifteen months old – and is now almost three years old. He is very happy there and has forged strong relationships with the other children and with various members of the team. I appreciate the kindness of the staff, the professionalism in all correspondence, and the flexibility when it comes to adding extra days, altering days, etc. We very much like that there are four different rooms, so he has always been grouped with his peers and never with children much older or younger. We welcome the updates we receive throughout the day. But, more than anything else, we are thrilled that he enjoys spending time there.

    Our two-year-old son attends Teddington Busy Bees and has done since aged ten months. He loves all the staff and is always excited to go to nursery for the day. They do a fantastic amount of different activities and he has learned so much from the nursery in his time there. They spend time every day outside in the garden which is so important. Every member of staff I have met at Busy Bees is very caring and attentive, always happy and enthusiastic. Our son has thrived since attending Busy Bees and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Our daughter has been with Busy Bees in Teddington for 8 months now and she absolutely loves her time there. Before she started, she wasn’t great around other kids but now she plays with everyone and is a really confident little girl. The staff are great and listen to my requests and address the concerns I do have in a really timely manner.
    I’ve recommended the nursery to all my friends.

    My son has been at Busy Bees since September 2022 and he absolutely loves it and has achieved so much in the last few months with a lot of patience AND understanding from the staff at the nursery. I cannot thank all the staff enough for what they have done with him getting ready for reception in September 2023. My son will be very sad to leave, as will I.

    The review relates to the past 2 years actually, not just 1 month.
    We are very happy with the nursery and our daughter is happy. She develops well, she loves to go there. Knowing that your child is comfortable there, is very reassuring.
    There is honestly nothing to complain about.
    The staff and management is amazing.
    We are really grateful for all their work.

    Our daughter joined Busy Bees Teddington just after turning 2 years old. Since then, she has thrived so much and is now a very bright girl. We feel that our daughter is much loved by the staff and her peers and is always happy to go to nursery. Our son just joined too and he loved it since day one. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to go for Busy Bees Teddington.

    We are very pleased with the staff support and nurturing of our daughter at Busy Bees, Teddington. All staff take an active interest in her when we drop her off and pick her up and she has started to settle in very well. We are pleased to hear about the different activities and see pictures of her enjoying them. We continue to appreciate hearing about the new activities the nursery offer her and the feedback we get about her interests and development. The staff are always great to deal with and our daughter loves being in their company.

    We have had a lovely time settling in. The teachers really take a personal interest in our baby and have developed a bond that is comforting to see.
    He is developing new skills every day and is clearly super happy and fulfilled.
