Burntwood nursery to offer week of storytelling sessions

Youngsters in Burntwood are being invited to a week of storytelling.

Busy Bees is taking part in the national Bringing Stories to Life’ initiative this week, which is backed by Ladybird Books, Usborne Books and children’s author Ian Whybrow –

Parents are being invited to the nursery each day for themed sessions.

Caroline Cooper, nursery manager at Busy Bees in St Matthews, said: “We’re really excited to welcome parents and families into the nursery.

“It promises to be a fun week and there will be many opportunities to share some of the ways we use storytelling and reading to enhance children’s learning on a day-to-day basis, as well as the chance for parents to get involved in some of their own storytelling and tell us which books they enjoyed reading most as a child.”

Visits can be booked by calling the nursery manager on 01543 678690 or visiting the Busy Bees website.

Lisa Snell, Early Years Director at Busy Bees, added: “We understand that parents lead busy lives and it’s not always possible to read every day with your child. However, it has been proven that children who are read to at an early age in life are more likely to excel with their numeracy, literacy and language skills as they get older.

“The ‘Bringing Stories to Life’ campaign is not about telling parents they should read more with their children, it’s an opportunity to give parents and families a fresh outlook on how they can make reading time magical with a clear link to supplementing their child’s learning at nursery.”
