BIZZY BEES PRE-SCHOOL
West Wickham, BR4
Kanak and her team are absolutely wonderful. They put so much effort into making the children feel welcome and happy. They ensure there is a safe environment for the children to learn and play and as a parent i feel like I’m leaving my kids with family members. Throughout the year of on/off lockdowns, the preschool have gone above and beyond in trying to make these transitions run as smoothly as they can, with as little disruptions as possible for our little ones. They have been ahead of many other early years’ settings, sending weekly home learning ideas & tasks for us to do at home, should you choose to. I found this more of a support tool rather than a to do task. I also found this a lovely way to keep my little one busy & in touch with preschool whilst being stuck home.
Bizzy bee really is a wonderful place and I wouldn’t send my kids anywhere else!!
My older son joined BB, at the age of 2.5years old unable to speak, do his numbers, his ABC, or play with others. He was very shy and wasn’t very forth coming.
I would say Bizzy bees has been a home from home. He also came to Bizzy Bees during the pandemic. This was invaluable as this prepared him for school. Without this time at school I don’t think he would have been prepared for school.
This taught him instrumental skills, reading, writing and interaction with Children The love and attention the staff gave him really gave him the grounding for school. He is now a confident, articulate little boy.
My younger son started with his brother non verbal, unable to count to 10, or knowledge of the alphabet. Since attending Bizzy bees he has excelled. He’s now verbal, his numerical and alphabet skills have vastly improved.
Myself and my partner have been so pleased with both of our daughters time at Bizzy Bees, our eldest daughter loved going there so much there was no question where our younger daughter would go.
The staff are really lovely and attentive, they helped us settle in and made us feel comfortable to stay and help with the transition and to ask any questions we may have had, the setting is also amazing with lots of outdoor space.
The ongoing communication between us and them is so good and lovely to hear what the girls have been up to, they really put your mind at ease and would highly recommend Bizzy Bees.
My little boy attended Bizzy bees for 2 & a half years. He absolutely loved it & didn’t want to leave! I can’t recommend this preschool enough. The staff are all so kind & caring, my son was so confident & happy here. They allowed my son to be whoever he wanted to be & always were encouraging him. I couldn’t have wished for better staff to look after my son when I couldn’t be there. Every activity he got to do at Bizzy bees he enjoyed, there was something new every day & I can honestly say it wasn’t repeated over the years either. I can’t speak highly enough of every aspect of Bizzy bees. Thank you for everything
My son absolutely loved his time at Bizzy Bees. He started when he was just 2 and a few months old and although a bit unsure to begin with, the care he received from the staff soon meant he went in happily and confidently without looking back. All the staff are so friendly and passionate about what they do, making the children feel so welcome and loved. The setting allows for activities across the early years curriculum both inside and out. My son loved the days he got to go out into 'the garden' and explore the grounds. His key worker often told me of how he would get more confident trying things out of his comfort zone and he proudly brought home his art work.
Throughout the lockdown, we received emails with activities and games to do with my son which could be accessed by both the younger and older children at different levels. Once reopened, the children were welcomed back to a covid secure environment giving them the same exciting opportunities to explore and learn. Once in the final year before school, my son enjoyed choosing a book to bring home each week and sharing it with me along with the phonics and number games and rhymes.
The staff often offered me advice on areas such as potty training and there were many opportunities (pre covid) for all members of the family to come in and experience the fun with my son.
Bizzy Bees Pre-School set my son up wonderfully for starting school both academically and practically despite the disruption from Covid 19 and I am excited for my daughter to start there very soon."
I really wanted to say a very big thank you to Kanak, Pauline and all staff at Bizzy Bees. D has settled in really well so far, and my husband and I are amazed at the way that he has taken to attending.
After I picked him up yesterday, he was the most happiest I have ever seen him. He was really excited about his day and retold me everything he did, which he had never done before. He was so excited, he told everyone that he is a big boy now and sung the nursery rhymes songs.
I am so delighted at the choice we made of moving D to Bizzy Bees. All staff have been great, very welcoming and accommodating. I really couldn't praise everyone more highly.
With kind regards

Hi there Kanak and Pauline,
I just wanted to send you a little note to say what an amazing school Bizzy bees really is !
O. has had such a wonderful, happy and fun time at school , and that is totally down to you both and all of your wonderful staff !!!!
O. has grown quite attached to you all ( as have I ) and it will be a sad day when we "both" have to leave . Haha x
"Bizzy Bees has been a wonderful pre-school for our daughter D. The staffs are caring, friendly and thoroughly professional. Bizzy Bees offers such a variety of activities for the children, learning has been fun and D. has gained great confidence from her time at pre-school.
Her new Infants school has a lot to live up to and we are sad to move on. However, we look forward to our younger daughter attending Bizzy Bees in the near future.
We would like to thank all of the fabulous staff for such a great start to D.'s education”.
