Chatham Receive Busy Bees Centres of Excellence Award
Busy Bees are excited to announce that our Nursery in Chatham have received the Busy Bees ‘Centres of Excellence’ award. Busy Bees are committed to offering quality childcare to every child that attends our nurseries. In continuing the passion, enthusiasm and drive our childcare professionals display, five Busy Bees nurseries across the UK have receive this award.
The nurseries chosen as the Centres of Excellence will encourage our childcare professionals to continue to develop and provide a good all round environment for the children at Busy Bees. The initiative promotes a proactive approach to best practice by giving our Nursery Staff the opportunity to visit the Centres of Excellence. During their visit, staff will observe areas such as; creativity, access to resources, and child learning journals accompanied with development monitoring systems. All the observations are designed to give inspiration and ideas to staff across the whole of Busy Bees, ensuring our nurseries are always exciting and efficient settings for children to develop and play.
Busy Bees Nursery in Chatham received the award after our Childcare and Curriculum team observed that they maintain a high standard of care and education through a dedicated key person approach with the children at the heart of everything. Everyone on the team is aware of the settings improvement plan and accept that they all have a part to play in sustaining their current judgment. The nursery is currently rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, and the staff team continue to explore new ideas and update their knowledge through regular training.
Lisa Snell, our Childcare and Curriculum Manager, was delighted with what she observed at the nursery, saying, “Chatham has been selected as a flagship nursery due to their passion and continued commitment to improve outcomes for children.”
The Centres of Excellence are part of a larger project being developed by Busy Bees throughout 2011. Our ‘See the Difference’ campaign ensures that each of our nurseries maintain a high level of care and service by answering to a strict and thorough criteria.
