Busy Bees


The first five years of a child's life are crucial to their development! 💕

With the right guidance, care and love, they will build healthy foundations, which will have long-lasting effects in their adulthood too.

We're proudly supporting National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) campaign, which aims to encourage everyone to understand how early years education impacts the first five years of a child’s future.

NDNA's campaign aims to:

🐝 Increase understanding of the importance of early childhood education.
🐝 Better the perception of the early years workforce as educators of young children 0-5.
🐝 Address the recruitment and retention crisis.
🐝 Boost the positive feedback the workforce receives about their work.
🐝 Support the uptake of early years places within settings.

Our pre-school children visit our local care home weekly to take part in activities with the elderly residents. This is great fun for both the children and the residents and a great partnership which we have with the care home.

Last week's activity was to paint a stone. Great fun for all. 😍

For National gardening day on 06/06/2023, the children enjoyed experiences of planting. Each child had the opportunity to add soil before planting seeds and adding water.

Gardening books were read with the children for them to understand and learn the process cycle of planting. The children are really excited to watch how the plants grow and will enjoy watering them each day. 😍

Foundation class enjoyed some fun in the sun, a trip on the bus to Chichester Priory park, to watch the Roman re-enactment. The children loved the battle of the Gladiators. 😍

Children have been learning all about shadows and reflections and they have been really engaged and fascinated by this. Not only by drawing around their own reflection but also by the reflections and shadows of objects. 😍


The children have been loving the lovely weather and are now fully engaged in growing a variety of vegetables. Every day the children take turns in watering them. Currently the children are growing and learning all about: Tomatoes, Onions, Peas, Potatoes, Carrots and Radishes. 😍

The Toddler children have been working hard last week making a volcano out of a variety of resources. They have used the Volcano to make it erupt and spill out its Lava. This was a fascinating experience for the children. 😍

The children and educators at Busy Bees enjoyed a magical Christmas walk around Salisbury. 🎄

They loved getting out and about in the community and being able to explore different occasions in Salisbury. They even bumped into the giant toy soldiers! ⛄


December starts with some wholesome news coming from Busy Bees 🤍

After hearing about the passing of our beloved Queen, there was a lot of discussion throughout the nursery, especially with the preschool children. So much so that the children asked if they could send a little something to the Queen's family.

The preschool children created a friendship wreath to show their support to the Queen's family, which was sent alongside a letter addressed to King Charles.

Everyone was extremely amazed to receive a card from King Charles himself with thanks for the kind thoughts and wonderful messages! 🙏🏻

Lest We Forget 🌹

This week, the children have been very busy creating wonderful poppies, wreaths and taking part in lots of activities to remember all of the soldiers who fought for our country.

Early learners may not grasp the full weight of Remembrance Day yet but introducing them to the story and concept of the poppy is a meaningful way of immersing them in the cultural significance of this day.


Our Busy Bees team in Wirral Irby is celebrating their second OUTSTANDING Ofsted Rating. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The nursery gained an ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, where it was also commented that children are “incredibly imaginative and creative” and “develop independence skills from a very early age”.

The staff at the nursery were recognised for creating a “language-rich environment that ignites children’s curiosity, creativity and imagination” and that “staff are highly skilled at adapting their teaching to meet the children’s interest”. 🐝

Kate Morse, Centre Director at Busy Bees Wirral Irby, said: “I can't express enough how incredibly proud I am of my team. They work hard every day to provide the children with quality activities in an environment where they feel safe and secure. The team build wonderful partnerships with our parents allowing us to support the whole family.'
