Busy Bees


Busy Bee’s begins the process of preparing each child for school by providing a more structured daily experience of nursery life. Our Busy Bee’s Pre-school Room is located in the Porta Cabin Buildings. We have a maximum of 32 children in this room, working on a 1:4 adult to child ratio.

Stimulating activities are planned to encourage understanding through logic, reasoning and free thought which further develops social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills within each child’s ability. Each child’s foundation stage profile is closely followed throughout the day. Although the Busy Bees have a more structured day, music-time, story-time, outdoor play, imaginary play, free play and messy and creative play are still an essential part of the daily routine.

Meal times are also important and are made enjoyable whilst encouraging children to eat a wide variety of foods. The children learn table manners and enjoy deciding their own quantities of food.

The children are given the opportunity to experience a varied range of activities within their daily routine, which in turn prepares them not only intellectually but also emotionally and socially for their time at school. Through purposeful play we encourage children to develop their mark making skills in literacy and numeracy, imaginative play and many more play experiences.
