Busy Bees Marshalswick Ltd


Busy Bees in Marshalswick is an independent and well established Preschool and Nursery offering a stimulating learning environment to children from 2 to 5 years. 

We have a highly qualified and experienced staff team with excellent adult to child ratios of 1:4 for our 2 year olds and younger 3 year olds and 1:6 with our funded children.  We recognise that children learn through playing, exploring, being active, creating and thinking critically.  Our broad and balanced curriculum develops a variety of skills, knowledge and understanding, ensuring that our children engage in exciting activities and experiences which support and extend their learning and development.


Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ 2010, 2015 and now 2020!

We are delighted to have been graded as outstanding in all areas. We are particularly pleased with the emphasis on our highly qualified and experienced team who ensure that all children “are challenged in their learning and make excellent progress.” The very high priority we place on language development was highlighted and our mindful approach supports children having “exceptionally high levels of concentration.”

Nursery Information Evening

We are holding our Nursery Information Evening on Tuesday 4th February from 7.30-9.00pm in the Upper Hall. This is for parents and carers of children who turn four between September 2020 and August 2021. Please come along to discover what goes on in our Nursery and how to apply for a place. We look forward to seeing you there!


Happy New Year! We have lots of exciting activities planned for 2020. It is the Chinese Year of the Rat and the children will be discovering what year they were born in. We are very excited to have been chosen to take part in a new professional development programme through the Department for Education to further develop children’s communication and language skills.
