In 1983, three families, all involved in care and education, decided to take matters into their own hands after they were left frustrated by the lack of quality childcare available for their children. Through this Busy Bees Nurseries was created and has since gone from strength to strength to become the largest provider of childcare in the UK, operating 250 nurseries across England, Scotland and Wales.
