St Albans Nursery and Montessori Pre-School, part of the Busy Bees childcare group, has been demonstrating how parents and children can make the most of story time at nursery and at home.
The nursery is holding a week of storytelling as part of a ‘bring stories to life’ campaign which is being backed by Ladybird Books, Usborne Books and children’s author Ian Whybrow.
The setting held a ‘share a story day’ on the 17 January, welcoming local representatives from Usborne Books to reads stories with the children.
Lisa Snell, Early Years Director at Busy Bees, said of the events:
“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.”
