This nursery is located in Enfield but there are Busy Bees nurseries wherever you need them.
You'll find them nestled by universities, tucked close to train stations, attached to hospitals, and snuggled down quiet streets in towns and cities, perfectly placed for drop-offs and pick-ups. Some are based in small, cosy homes, others in office buildings - and we even have one in a converted church. 97% are rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted or equivalent. Every nursery is as unique as its ch

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! 🙏🏻

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.

🎆 Supervise your child at all times.
🎆 Wrap up warm with coats, hats, scarves and gloves.
🎆 Don't touch firework debris.
🎆 If you're lighting a bonfire at home, make sure you do it in a place away from fences, sheds and other objects that could catch fire.
🎆 Consider the well-being of pets.

Happy Halloween, everyone! Here are some spooktacular activities that our nurseries have set up for our little ones. 🎃

We're having an amazing time celebrating the Festival of Light at Busy Bees, with lots of learning and creative artwork done by our little ones. 💗
May this special day bring you peace, joy and great moments with your loved ones and always remember to shine your light wherever you go! 🪔

Alexander and Sarah helped us put our new light stickers up in the centres across Scotland so that everyone could remember to 'turn off the lights when they are not needed'.

Children in preschool have been developing their fine motor skills through threading and creating pasta necklaces. ❤️
Fine motor skills contribute to supporting children's handwriting, which consists of many other skills, such as:
🐝 Eye-hand coordination
🐝 Muscle memory
🐝 Body control
Find our 'busy hands' section in our UP App for activities to support your child at home.
Discover patterns and shapes with your child as they print with natural resources. 🍂
✨ SAFETY FIRST ✨
Consider your child's allergies before making the playdough. Be cautious as some items may pose a choking hazard to children under the age of three. Encourage your child to wash their hands after exploring the natural resources.
What to do:
🐝 Go on an autumn walk with your child to see what natural materials they can find.
🐝 Back home, encourage your child to use the materials to print patterns into the playdough. Why not set them challenges such as:
🐝 Can you use the conkers to print a straight line in the playdough?
🐝 Can you use the pine cones to make a triangle or diamond shape?
SAVE this activity for later or SHARE it with someone who may love to give it a try too.
As parents and carers, we understand how important it is to take care of our family’s mental health & wellbeing. 🧠
Let's all use this day as a reminder that:
❤️ It's ok to talk about our mental health.
❤️ It's ok to embrace all our feelings with kindness.
❤️ It's ok to feel like we need a break.
