Last week we learnt all about how flowers play such an important job in helping fruit and and veg to grow.

We learnt that we need to encourage bees and other bugs into the garden so they can help pollinate other plants.

Some of the children have been busy today encouraging bugs and bees to come and see our tomato plants.

The surprising benefits of introducing children to nature

We want to nurture happy, healthy children who love learning. Thatโ€™s why we spend most of our day outside downstairs here at Busy Bodies.

The surprising benefits of introducing children to nature It comes as no surprise that most little ones love playing outdoors - but did you know just how good it is for them?
