A popular Littleport pre-school has been temporarily closed but staff say there is “nothing to be concerned about”.

A source told Spotted in Ely today that parents of youngsters attending Busy Bees Pre-School in Grange Lane were asked to “collect their kids immediately” and that the facility would be shut “until at least half term” due to “unforeseen circumstances”.


A spokeswoman at the pre-school said: “There is nothing to be concerned about.

“It’s just a statutory requirement that we have to meet before we can re-open.”

She said Busy Bees had no further comment.

Registered in 1992, Busy Bees caters for a maximum of 40 children at a time.

The pre-school is normally open every day during term time, from 8.50am to 2.50pm.

It also offers a lunch club facility, taking both funded and unfunded children.

Late last year staff were praised by Ofsted for their hard work to turn the school around in a short space of time.

During their last Ofsted inspection in November 2015, they were graded “good” in all areas, just nine months after being told that the pre-school required improvement.
