Parents urged to book an appointment ahead of first open day in months

A nursery in Bedford is welcoming the community through its doors for an open day for the first time since lockdown was announced.

On Saturday (August 8), between 10am-12.30pm, Busy Bees Bedford is inviting the parents to book an appointment and be part of its first open day in months as lockdown measures are relaxed.

On the day, visitors will be able to explore the indoor and outdoor learning environments.

The Manton Lane nursery has also introduced a number of safety measures 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 time slot before they visit the nursery. Visitors will also be asked to wear face coverings and maintain a two metre distance wherever possible.

Zoe Dickens, centre director at Busy Bees Bedford, said: “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 here at Busy Bees Bedford.

“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 Bedford – it’s great to be open again!”
