At Busy Bees Frimley, we value every child and see them as unique and a special taonga. We understand that your child’s education and care is a priority and that choosing the right centre can be a big decision. We would be delighted to share in your child’s learning journey. You’re welcome to call or visit anytime. 

We cater for tamariki up to six and we are open from 7.30am-5.30pmMonday to Friday


At Busy Bees Frimley we have 2 rooms, Pōtikī (under 2s) which embraces āhuru (cosiness and comfort) and Tuākana (2-6 year olds) which focuses on tūhuratanga (discover and investigation). Both rooms have their own outdoor space providing endless opportunities to explore the natural environment. We communicate, engage and work in partnership with parents and whānau regarding all aspects of children’s learning, interests, goals and holistic development. Parents love the rich sense of community at Busy Bees Frimley, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships.

Our Rooms

Pōtikī (up to 2 years)

Our Nursery environment is based on building aroha and trusting bonds between infants and teachers, who structure the day according to individual needs. Teachers work closely with families to understand infant cues and develop a routine that supports children’s natural rhythms. Teachers utilise sensory play, outdoor exploration, music and movement to create a fun, interactive atmosphere whilst maintaining a focus on the aroha and care that infants need to thrive. 

Tuākana ( 2-6 years)

Our Preschool provides a rich learning environment focused on the tuākana (older children) of our centre ensuring they have the opportunity to develop confidence, independence and self-management all of which align with Te Whāriki (Early Childhood Curriculum) and the pathways to kura (school). Children are encouraged to care for others,  taiao (the environment) and their own belongings and are supported to understand their growing sense of responsibility for themselves and the world around them. While reading and writing materials are available to explore, the curriculum is emergent and discovery-based, with teachers observing and conversing with children to develop learning based on their interests.

Nourish - Thriving minds, active bodies, nurtured hearts

With the inviting smell of home cooked meals and baking, you won’t have to search very far to find our fabulous and passionate childcare centre cook who freshly prepares all meals in the heart of our centre.

Across morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, our Nourish menu provides foods that are minimally processed, avoiding recipes that are high in added sugar, instead using fresh, real and wholesome ingredients. Children are provided with well-balanced meals from the four main food groups (breads and cereals, milk and milk products, fruit and vegetables, lean meat and meat alternatives).

Our centre has a number of small planter boxes which we enjoy planting in. These gardens help tamariki learn through hands-on activities, encourage them to work together to plant and harvest, and teach them where food comes from. They also help children develop a love for nature and care for the environment.


Our local curriculum incorporates learning dispositions, the principles and goals of our ECE curriculum Te Whāriki, and competencies derived from Tataiako. Our innovative learning environments are abundantly resourced with stimulating educational resources which complements the delivery of our local curriculum and educational programme. Our teachers are passionate about encouraging children's creativity, supporting their emerging social interactions, and celebrating their individual successes.

Passionate Teachers

We have a talented group of kaiako who have been selected based on their experience and passion within the Early Learning field, their professional knowledge of teaching and nurturing tamariki as well as their philosophy of education and knowledge of child development. We recognise parents/caregivers as the child’s first educators and through a supportive and collaborative approach we work together to develop shared goals and aspirations for children.


At Busy Bees Frimley, we believe that as an Early Learning Centre, we have an important part to play in our local community and a very special opportunity to positively impact the lives of our young tamariki in their early stages of development. We love to explore our local environment and are fortunate to be a short walk from Frimley Park and Frimley School. We encourage people in our community to come into our centre and share their talents and knowledge with us.



Beau has such a fabulous time. His teachers are incredible and caring, he has learnt and developed so much since enjoying their care. Yummy healthy lunches too.
