On Saturday, August 22 August, from 10am till 1.30pm, Busy Bees in Apsley, on Mill Street, is inviting parents to book an appointment and be part of its first open day in months as lockdown measures are relaxed.

Visitors will be able to explore the indoor and outdoor learning environments, all set up for children to enjoy.

There will be details of the healthy, nutritious meals that are served at the nursery, as well as a chance to see how the educators use Unleashing Potential (UP), an innovative, flexible early-years learning programme, which is used to encourage a lifelong love of learning.

The nursery has also introduced a number of safety measures in order to make its open day as safe as possible.

To help limit the number of people in the nursery at any one time, parents will need to book their timeslot before they visit the nursery, visitors will also be asked to wear face coverings and maintain a two metre distance wherever possible.
