A nursery in Inverness is welcoming the community through its doors for an open day for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown.
On Saturday from 10am Busy Bees Inverness in Stratherrick Road, is inviting the parents to be part of its first open day in months as lockdown measures are relaxed.
On the day, visitors – who should book in advance – will be able to explore the indoor and outdoor learning environments at the nursery.
There will also be details of the healthy meals served at the nursery, as well as a chance to see how educators use Unleashing Potential (UP), an innovative, early-years learning programme used to encourage a lifelong love of learning.
Visitors will also be asked to wear face coverings and maintain a two metre distance wherever possible.
Fiona Mackenzie, centre director, said: "The last few months have really shown the importance of friendship and community spirit, and we are thrilled to be bringing people together once again as we emerge from these very challenging times.
"With our first open day in months, we’re excited to celebrate the community spirit of our area and welcome back some familiar faces, while showcasing all the wonderful things we’ve been up to here at Busy Bees Inverness.
"We remain committed to providing the best start in life for children, no matter the circumstances, so this will also be a fantastic opportunity to show parents what a day at our nursery looks like now.
"This is set to be an inspiring day, and we can’t wait to welcome the people of Inverness – it’s great to be open again!"
Busy Bees also recently launched a new Recommend a Friend scheme.
Busy Bees parents referring a friend will be rewarded with £150 towards childcare – and their friends will receive £150 worth of vouchers when their child joins the nursery.
