Busy Bees nursery in Worcester welcomed Robin Walker, local MP on Friday 22 July.
The Busy Bees team welcomed Robin Walker MP for a discussion around the importance of children’s wellbeing, and the nursery’s approach to ensuring children are prepared for their transition to school.
He was shown around the nursery by Marg Randles OBE, who co-founded Busy Bees Nurseries in 1984, and the nursery team, before finding out more about Unleashing Potential (UP), Busy Bees’ very own digital learning and development programme.
Following his visit to Busy Bees Worcester, Robin Walker MP, said:
“A child’s learning environment that is rich and nurturing can make all the difference to their health and wellbeing. It was wonderful to see how the Busy Bees team have prioritised children’s wellbeing, in particular through their UP platform.
“Ensuring children are prepared for school is so important for their development and it was great to discuss this with the fantastic team at the nursery.”
Robin Walker, who until recently was the Minister of State at the Department for Education, was welcomed by the children with a card. Robin Walker MP also joined in with some creative activities including creating numbers out of playdough and exploring emotions using colours.
Shelley Southall, Centre Director at Busy Bees Worcester, added:
“It was an honour to welcome Robin Walker MP to our nursery and share with him all of the wonderful activities we offer at the nursery to give children the best start in life. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to discuss such topical issues and what more the early years sector needs to do to support children’s learning and development.”
