About the employer

We believe that early childhood is the foundation upon which we build the rest of our lives – it is not just preparation for the next step but is vitally important in itself. We have been providing dedicated childcare for children aged from 3 months to five years old since we first opened our lovely, friendly independent Day Nursery and preschool in 1997. We are easily accessible from many localities in and around Hedge End as we are within very easy reach of both the M27 (Junction 7) and the A27 Kanes Hill. We are proud of our experienced staff team, some of whom have been with us from our first year, through to students who have returned to us for work experience from school and college following their first experience here at Busikids as babies themselves.
