On the 18th December Busy Bees held a Christmas Service. Parents and grandparents were welcome with coffee and mince pies.  The service was at 9.30am led by Rev Jane who got the children to unwrap a few presents and had a model nativity scene at the front where she put baby Jesus.

June 22nd 2014  A celebration of 50 years of pre-school provision at the church.

     What a successful happy occasion the Jubilee celebrations were.

Beginning with our local MP David Laws popping in to Busy Bees on Friday , meeting Mary Studley who began the nursery in 1964, and her daughter Linda who was her first pupil. Also Wendy and Janice the two supervisors of Busy Bees during the past ten years, and hearing the children sing for him.

     On Sunday afternoon we had over one hundred visitors including Crewkerne's Mayor,

Rev'd. Ruth Farrant, past assistants, members of our church family and visitors, and lots of parents and children to see the exhibition of old and new photographs and information, which was very popular.  Also popular were at least four face painters, whom we thank.  An entertainer keeping the children occupied.  Rev'd Jane's husband blowing balloons all afternoon ready to set off altogether. Lots of lovely cakes and teas served by the stewards and their team, and at just after 4.30pm we went into church for a lovely thanksgiving service led by Rev'd Jane, with Michelle on her keyboard.It was a great success, and thanks go to Janice and her staff and families.  To all the management committee and 'husbands'. To Mary's daughter Linda and family.  To the stewards and their team. But thanks especially to Mary who began it all and now has retired from Busy Bees management committee.  We are grateful for all you have done over the past ten years Mary, we shall miss your input.

Extract from Ofsted report - March 2014

  • Children achieve well because staff use good teaching techniques and closely monitor their progress. Staff provide experiences that capture children's attention so that they enjoy their play and often concentrate well at what they do.

  • The indoor and outdoor child-focused learning environments provide interesting and

stimulating activities that engage children to support their learning and development.

  • Children enjoy their time in a playgroup where their needs are put first. The key person system works exceptionally well to encourage children to feel welcomed and valued.

  • The manager provides strong leadership to a committed team of staff. Plans for

improvement are well targeted to further raise the quality of provision.
