Glasgow nursery open days this weekend

TWO Glasgow nurseries are inviting the community through their doors for an open day for the first time since lockdown was announced.

This Saturday from 10am, Busy Bees Glasgow Heritage and Busy Bees Glasgow Kelvin are encouraging local parents to book an appointment and 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 nurseries, 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 nurseries have also introduced a number of safety measures in order to make the open days as safe as possible. To help limit the number of people in the nurseries at any one time, parents will need to book their timeslot before they visit, and visitors will also be asked to wear face coverings and maintain a two metre distance wherever possible.

Donna Macdonald, centre director at Busy Bees Glasgow Heritage, said: “The last few months have really shown the importance of friendship and community spirit, and we are thrilled to be bringing people together once again as we emerge from these very challenging times.

“With our first open day in months, we’re excited to celebrate the community spirit of our area and welcome back some familiar faces, while showcasing all the wonderful things we’ve been up to at our Busy Bees nurseries in Glasgow.

“We remain committed to providing the best start in life for children, no matter the circumstances, so this will also be a fantastic opportunity to show parents what a day at our nursery looks like now. This is set to be an inspiring day, and we can’t wait to welcome the people of Glasgow – it’s great to be open again.”
