Busy Bees in Bicester is a large, purpose built nursery situated on Bure Park, within easy walking distance of  a bus route, the Town Centre and  both  Bicester North and Bicester Village train stations.  The M40 motorway, the A41 and A34 main routes are just a stones throw away, making commuting to work easy to manage.

The nursery aims to provide a warm and friendly, homely atmosphere for all the children, and we pride ourselves on having an outstanding partnership with our parents. We have built up good links within the local community and work closely with local schools, health visitors and other children’s professionals in the area.
