Busy Bees Day Nursery at Walthamstow

Day nursery

What we feel makes Just Learning Nursery - Higham Hill special:

• Our facilities are purpose-built all on a single level, and nearly all rooms lead out into our extensive gardens

• Each room caters for small family groups of six children and two staff

• When our children reach their first birthday they move onto the next stage of their Just Learning experience: each room moves together so the children grow with a strong sense of security, continuity, self-confidence and self esteem

• We have another three classrooms for two to three year olds- we can provide care for 16 children in each room with four staff

• We offer nursery care for all children and include children with all special individual needs

• We have two pre-school classes that both cater for three and four year olds. In each class we can have sixteen children with two staff

• We have recently made one of the pre-school rooms into an intermediate group, so that when children reach their third birthday and move to a pre-school group they will have the opportunity to be introduced gradually to the Foundation Stage of the National Curriculum

We aim to offer you as a parent, the best possible care for your child, peace of mind and reassurance, enabling you to go to work free of worries.  Our staff are qualified and experienced with only your child's best interest at heart.  Because of our 'Open House' policy, you are welcome to come into the nursery at any time.  We aim to maintain the nursery and its equipment to the highest standards, ensuring our policies especially hygiene, safety and security are followed at all times. Our aim is to continue to develop and maintain our excellent Ofsted report which are available for you to view either at the nursery or on the website. 

With a varied and healthy menu, your child will get 3 meals a day, fruit and vegetables every day and an option of a vegetarian alternative if required.  Your child will be cared for by qualified and experienced staff who continues to update their skills with regular training.
