Free Childcare Offered to Sup
Busy Bees Nurseries take their role within the local community very seriously, and are always exploring new ways in which they can support their local area. 82 Busy Bees Nurseries now offer a Community Support Scheme, giving free childcare sessions to disadvantaged children and families within their local communities.
The scheme gives vulnerable and hard to reach families 100 hours of free childcare per week over a ten week period. The free childcare sessions are offered to children in need of care and families in need of support based on referrals from Healthcare professionals. The Nursery Manager works closely with local healthcare professionals to determine which families will most benefit from the respite childcare.
Families referred to the scheme face issues such as mental health problems, post natal depression, physical disabilities and safeguarding concerns, as well as children with specific individual needs such as speech and language development and illnesses.
Busy Bees see the Community Support Scheme as a great opportunity to offer support to local families and health workers. The scheme aims to offer care to vulnerable children, as Busy Bees believes that all children are entitled to quality care and should be nurtured in the best possible environment.
