Merry Go Round

The “Early Years” specialists.. giving little people the best possible start in life.


I Can’t Recommend A Better Nursery Than Merry Go Round, First My Eldest Went Here And She Really Enjoyed Being There Speaking Highly Of The Staff And How Great They Are And What She Would Do Throughout The Day .

I can’t recommend this nursery enough, the staff are amazing and seem so much more engaged with the children than I’ve seen at other nurseries. My daughter was at another nursery but I wasn’t happy with it as whenever I went to pick her up a lot of the time the kids were sat in front of a screen! .

This was our first experience leaving daughter for few hours every day , and first month has gone fantastic. Daughter enjoys being there and does feel safe , so that’s what you want from nursery , safe hands and good hearts . ❤.

I would like to thank all of the staff at Merry go round for being so patient and caring with myself and my daughter.

My Youngest Goes To Merry Go Round He Was Upset First Couple Of Sessions But Now We Walk Up And He Goes In With No Problem Always Get Update On How My Little One Is And Pictures Of His Progress Of What He Gets Up To And Is Amazing Always Reassured. So Glad He Settled Well

My Daughter has progressed so much since starting at Merry-go-round and settled in very quickly. Staff seem to put a lot of effort in to planning themed activities on a regular basis too. They have a bright and spacious room with different zones and activities and the garden is one of the best I’ve seen in the area.


Merry-go-round takes children from ages 24 months to 5 years.  We have a fully inclusive environment and we care for ALL children, whatever their needs. Our high staff ratios enable us to do this well. Our staff really care for the children: it’s not just a job to them, it’s a passion, and that’s why they’re here. We have funded places available for 2 – 5 year olds. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Our wonderful environment includes the very best furniture and resources available, and a lovely outdoor space which we enjoy in all weathers and seasons.

What Have We Done Today ?

About Us

Merry-go-round Nursery was established in 2016 by Busy Childcare LLP as a sister setting to its original Nursery, Barts Busy Bees.  We are a caring, Community based, family run business, with our children, families and staff at its heart. We take children from 24 months old until August following their 5th birthday. This means that children can stay with us instead of attending a school nursery (aged 3-4), and sometimes even for their Reception year (aged 4-5). Doing this means that they will benefit from our far superior staffing levels (from 1 staff member to 4 – 8 children, rather than 1 staff member per 13 children in many school nurseries). 

Contrary to popular belief, attending a school nursery does not give your child a better chance of being offered a place in the school, as that is decided solely by your Local Authority. 

We pride ourselves on being able to offer EVERY child provision tailored to their individual needs.

Our Community

Merry-Go-Round and our sister nursery, Barts Busy Bees, are run to give your child the best possible preschool education, ensuring that they enjoy their time with us and have FUN learning about not only the curriculum, but about tolerance, community and empathy. We were set up by parents who realised that most local nurseries are run solely for profit, employing the youngest and therefore the cheapest staff possible. Our staff are a team and we do our utmost to ensure that they are a happy and enthusiastic team who love caring for and educating your children. We don’t employ on cost, but on the best fit and life experience. We are very lucky, we couldn’t ask for a better staff team.
