Our child & baby friendly activities include painting, baking, singing, story-time, messy play, dressing up and role play.  In addition, Busy Bees Montessori Nursery is delighted to offer children and babies a variety of extra learning opportunities, unique to our nursery, these include:


Exploring the great outdoors 

Outdoor play is an important part of learning and development and encourages children to practise and master emerging physical skills. Our large outdoor play area allows our children to fully and freely experience motor skills like running, leaping, and jumping. It is also the most appropriate area for practising ball-handling skills, like throwing, catching, and striking.   



Dedicated Montessori teaching 

We incorporate the Montessori philosophy into our early years learning and education and offer specialist sessions with a dedicated Montessori room leader to our nursery and pre-school children.  The Montessori method captures the children's imagination, ensures their attention and inspires their ambition. We use a variety of materials and teaching approaches specially designed to engage children's curiosity and instinct for exploration.

All of our pre-school children have access to weekly French lessons taught by qualified teachers, and we regularly provide music and movement sessions for under 3's.  These extra curricular activities are designed to be fun and interactive, as well as providing structure and opportunities for self expression into the children's daily routine.


Themed days and activities

Our themed days and activities are a great way to get all of our babies, children and staff having fun together, and learning something new at the same time.  Activities include; visits from local animal activity companies, national book week, Halloween parties and Christmas events, and we like to encourage parents to get involved too.

I am so pleased that we decided to send Harry to Busy Bees Montessori in Rushden last year. The staff are lovely, the facilities are great, as is the food he eats.


We have been able to see his development and the leaps that he makes in speaking, playing, motor functions, walking and confidence. Such a happy boy in such a happy environment.
