Leapfrog Day Nursery in Simmonds View, Stoke Gifford, has officially become a Busy Bees Nursery – five years after the previous proprietors were acquired by Busy Bees Group in 2007.
Bradley Stoke Mayor Cllr Ben Walker was invited to officially re-open the nursery under its new branding at a champagne reception held yesterday (Thursday 9th February).
The Mayor was given a tour of the facilities and was treated to a Wake ‘n’ Shake session performed by 3-5 year-olds.
The local community was also invited to inspect the refurbished nursery, which has recently been re-decorated and fitted out with new carpeting and flooring.
Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, parents and visitors were treated to a champagne and cake reception and given a chance to look around the new facilities.
Busy Bees Manager Gillian Hill, said:
“We couldn’t wait to reveal the nursery’s new image to parents and children. It looks fantastic!”
“We were all very excited about the Mayor attending to officially open our new nursery as ‘Busy Bees’.”
Guests of honour at the re-opening were the Kianchehr family, who have had four children attending the nursery over the past ten years, with their youngest Lydia still attending in the pre-toddlers group.
Upcoming events at the Stoke Gifford nursery include a Valentines Day event, Pancake Fun on 21st February and a Character Day on 10th March.
Busy Bees Group is the UK’s largest childcare provider, with 129 nurseries across the country. The business incorporates Leapfrog Day Nurseries, which Busy Bees acquired in September 2007, and TLC Nurseries.
