Bees in the wild busy bees has partnered with the Wildlife trusts to design busy bees goes Wild, a learning enhancement programme to reignite children’s curiosity for the outdoors.
the initiative is launching exclusively across busy bees’ 236 nurseries around the uK, where children will take part in wildlife-themed activities.
they will document their progress in scrapbooks, which will be judged at both nursery and national level. national winners will be awarded with goody bags and free family membership to their local Wildlife trust.
Marg randles, co-founder and managing director of busy bees Childcare, said, ‘We’re really looking forward to launching busy bees goes Wild and can’t wait to see the colourful and creative scrapbooks our children are going to produce.’
