We pride ourselves in looking after our wider community and teaching children the importance of looking after those around you.
We started our intergenerational project in September 2018 and have successfully supported our local care home to build relationships with our preschool children. The benefits of the project have been seen on both sides (for the elderly residents and our children) and led to Bright Bees received an award for our work by “the national lottery trust” in December 2019.
We will continue our weekly visits once it is safe to do so and with up to date procedures in place to ensure the safety of the residents and our children.
At Bright Bees we like to keep our children connected to the world by learning through experiences. We won’t just sing about the zoo, we will visit the zoo and reflect on our day there. We also plan trips to the park, farm, local museums and shops. Whether its visiting the car wash or the recycling centre we ensure children are learning by creating memories and experiences.
Trips are based on children’s interest and areas of development and you will always be notified before we take your child of the premises. Every member of our team is first aid trained in Paediatric first aid and ratios are reduced when we are away from the building.
Throughout the year we will give you opportunities to come into the nursery and see how we teach your child first hand. This would be a good opportunity to see our values on learning in action. It will also be a good opportunity for you to network with other parents in the room and meet your child’s friends.
You will have the opportunity to go through your Child's learning at the end of each term with your child’s key person and the room leader.
