We’ve been super Busy Bees since we started back at Oldbury Busy Bees pre-school and playgroup in September.
Despite coronavirus, we’ve managed to open our doors and have welcomed 5 new children who have settled in with our existing team of Busy Bees wonderfully. We’re constantly updating our policies around COVID-19 to ensure that our children, staff, parents and carers remain safe and protected.
So far this year we’ve learned all about autumn; we’ve played in lots of fallen leaves and made bread rolls shaped like hedgehogs. We’ve made magic potions for Hallowe’en, celebrated bonfire night by making some colourful firework pictures and celebrated Diwali by creating beautiful Rangoli patterns.
We also made a very special trip up to the church on remembrance day, with a beautiful poppy wreath that the children created using their handprints, to remember our fallen hero’s.
All of this alongside all of the usual fun we have; playing with our toys, dressing up, making and playing with play-doh, practicing yoga and doing lots of painting, drawing and reading.
And you might have seen us on one of our many rambles through the village and down to the river – give us a wave if you pass us on one of our adventures. We think it’s so important to get out and enjoy the countryside.
We’re now looking forward to all of our exciting Christmas activities – we’ve already started learning some of our favourite Christmas songs!
We are very lucky to have a new shed in our garden, to safely house all of our outdoor toys. The shed was very kindly constructed by Philip and Ben Pearce, we are very grateful for their hard work in putting this together for us.
We’re actively looking for new committee members. As a not-for-profit charity, we rely on volunteers to be part of our committee to remain open. There are plenty of ways to get involved, but right now we really need a vice chairperson. This role would involve supporting the chair person, and attending a monthly meeting to discuss the running of Oldbury Busy Bees. If you would like to be involved, please contact Denise on 01454 412466 or join in with our AGM (date TBC)- please contact for details.
Also, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like a space at Busy Bees for your child. We’re open from 9am – 3pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
