Back to the gol-den days – New East Grinstead nursery needs your help to build a world record
Remember the carefree days of creating forts out of bedsheets as a child? Well a new local nursery is asking parents and their children to do just that, by taking part in a special den-building world record attempt.
To mark its Enrolment Day on Saturday 18 January, the newly launched Busy Bees East Grinstead, on Moat Road, is inviting the community to join hundreds of people across the country taking part in a record-breaking attempt. This follows research from Busy Bees which found that building dens is one of the best things about being young.
So, for local mums and dads wanting to revisit happy childhood memories, or children wanting to explore their imagination, this nursery is opening its doors for its Enrolment Day from 10am-4pm, where den building and other fun activities will be on offer.
The brand-new nursery has been designed to create a bright, airy and spacious environment. Fully fitted with state-of-the-art equipment, Busy Bees East Grinstead offers care for children aged 0-5 years. As well as a nursery tour, the open event will offer parents and children the chance to get to know staff, sample food prepared by the nursery’s in-house chef, and take a look at the great resources available onsite.
Alex Peacock, Centre Director at Busy Bees East Grinstead said: “Our Enrolment Day is a wonderful opportunity for local people to pop in and find out more about our brand new nursery – and this one is set to be really special with our world record attempt.
“Choosing a nursery is a hugely important decision for parents. They want to find the best environment that is going to help their child develop and thrive in their earliest years. That’s why open events like these are so important; we want to give parents and children the opportunity to familiarise themselves with our nursery and get to know the team, as well as ask any questions they might have.
“We’re looking forward to meeting local families and bringing everyone together to join in with our den-building world record attempt and other fun activities on Saturday 18 January – we hope to see you there!”
A study by Busy Bees of 1,000 children under 11 found that building dens, jumping in puddles, climbing trees and dressing up are some of the best things about being a child.
Getting presents, feeling loved by parents and school holidays are also considered the greatest, while building towers, creating things out of empty boxes and getting a visit from the Tooth Fairy also feature in the top 40 list.
Specifically designed to support its child-centred approach, Busy Bees East Grinstead promotes the development of creativity, individuality and self-confidence in each child, and works in partnership with parents to provide the highest standard of nursery care.
