I have a love for children and a commitment to providing a high standard of childcare. I’m also very passionate in helping all children grow emotionally, physically and educationally.

I have a good size indoor space for all kind of play and also a lovely outdoor space which includes playhouse, slide, sandpit, chalk board, mud kitchen and much more.

Below are the latest reviews for Gilly Bees Day Care. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

My son has been attending Gilly Bees daycare for nearly a year. Hes had a wonderful time. Gilly always ensures there are things to do that he is interested in and makes his days as fun as possible. Gillys has become a second home to him and he feels comfortable going to play and loves to attend. Gilly has a lovely garden and my little boy is very active and has had lots of fun running around, playing with the other children and getting messy in the mud kitchen . As a keyworker parent, Gilly has maintained reliable, safe and flexible care throughout the pandemic and I have always felt that my son is just as safe with Gilly as he is with me. We are genuinely sad for him to be moving on to school.
