Our Setting

At Busy Bears Preschool and Nursery, we believe that children learn and develop best when they feel happy and safe. Therefore we are passionate about offering a warm, welcoming and exciting place for children.

We are located in the small village of Stoke Albany, next to Wilbarston. 

3.7 miles from Desborough 

5.4 Miles from Market Harborough 

6.3 Miles  from Corby 

We are a pack away setting, in a beautiful village hall. Attached to the hall is an enclosed courtyard which is set up daily for the children to explore and enjoy. As well as that, we also explore our surroundings with long walks, bug hunts, visits to the local park and much more. 

We also have weekly Forest School Sessions, therefore all the children at Busy Bears get to explore, learn and engage with nature on a daily basis. 

We are a small preschool and nursery who care for children between 0-5 year olds, offering term-time only and full time places. Being a small setting is a huge benefit for everyone, as all our staff build fantastic, close relationships with the children as well as their families. 

We offer the children in the preschool free flow between indoors and outdoors, offering a wide range of opportunities to explore different areas such as sand, water, role play, construction and mark making. We set up the different areas to support the children's learning as well as following their interests.  

Children in our under 2's room (Busy cubs) also get to experience lots of outdoor play, with daily walks around the village, playtime in our courtyard as well as visiting our beautiful surroundings to jump in muddy puddles or picnics in the park.

Holiday clubs - We are excited to offer a fantastic holiday club! They run during the Easter and Summer holidays. The length and duration of these clubs depend on the demand at that time. Our holiday club is open for children aged between 3-10 years old. (Please note, due to COVID-19 we cannot yet confirm if we are running our holiday club this summer)
