Okay place to work.
When I first started busy bees I absolutely enjoyed my time. As time went by i found Busy Bees just wasn't for me. It felt like I was on the ipad more than being with the children and that just wasn't why I wanted to work for busy bees.

amazing place to work
I work at the Balbrough chesterfield nursery and the derby bishops drive nursery. the management is amazing at both the nurseries, the staff are welcoming and friendly and the children are lovely. Also, they give you lots of opportunities to advance and train.

Horrible place to work
Horrible place to work, bad management who constantly slag staff off behind their back, always made to feel bad if you were ill, mental health was taken as a joke with staff being constantly mocked and not believed. Staff were played off against each other making it very clicky place to work. Overworked and unpaid with massively big differences in pay for same titled job. Generally a horrible company to work for all they care about is numbers and having the most nurseries and the most children crammed in even if it means children constantly being moved around to fit ratios making them unsettled. Spend all their money on buying more nurseries rather than taking care of the ones they have. We were constantly on spending freezes meaning not being allowed to buy well needed resources for the children instead staff used to buy it out of their own money. Do not work for this company, you will be unappreciated, over worked, underpaid and left feeling horribly depressed.
Practitioner in Plymouth, Devon
Terribly lazy staff, rude management, long hours and poor pay. No respect received and no appreciation. Busy bees priority is profit and profit only. They were unable to manage covid bubbles effectively resulting in an outbreak. Terrible business. Stay away.

Working for Busy Bees was very rewarding and I blossomed as a early years educator while working for them. They offer so much training to help you advance in your field.
