Busy Bears Day Nursery 

Welcome to Busy Bears Day Nursery, Preston 

How to find us 
Busy Bears Nursery is located on Manor House Lane in Deepdale, Preston. We first opened our doors in 1992 and became a part of the Netstar 9 group in 2001. Situated within a busy local community with fantastic commuting options, our aim at Busy Bears is to provide a happy, caring, safe, and stimulating environment for your child. 
Our team approach is to provide a ‘home from home’ nursery environment in which your child will feel welcomed, encouraged, and eager to learn. We pride ourselves on our highly experienced team, and we’re proud to say that our staff have achieved qualifications above the national average for nursery schools. Our team develops a close liaison with all parents from the very first visit, and it is through this relationship that we can ensure the needs of every child are met. 
Busy Bears is a two storey farmhouse built in 1892 and set in half an acre of its own grounds. The building has been thoughtfully redeveloped to provide space for 50 children. Children are cared for in groups with children of a similar age and benefit from: 
Well resourced areas – both inside and outside 
Supportive adult interaction 
Smile4life accreditation  
Self contained area for babies 
Award winning kitchen facilities where we create fresh home cooked food  
We have strong relationships within our local community with local schools and children’s centres. We also work closely with outside agencies, which enables us to provide the best service we can for you and your child. At Busy Bears there is no place for prejudice or discrimination – each individual child and their families are valued and respected. 
“I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Busy Bears nursery, my daughter is happy, engaged, and excited about each new day” - Miss J Chambers, Preston 
Can I take this opportunity to say a big thank you for all the good work everyone has done in the last 6 months. The nursery has really improved and I can see the difference in the kids. All the staff are doing there best and I would just like to thank them for this. - Take care, Lindsay Hetko
