A NURSERY school’s garden has undergone a complete refurbishment to help develop learning opportunities for children.

Busy Bees Day Nursery, which is on Wimborne Place in Daventry, is currently having a garden open week to showcase the work.

The area, used by children up to two-years-old, now has artificial grass.

In the two to three-year-old’s garden there is also some new artificial grass and real grass and in the three to five-year-olds area there’s a new building area where youngsters can learn construction skills as well as a new climbing wall and log cabin.

Nursery manager Jo Thomson said: “We are also encouraging children to get involved with planting.

“We have had some plants put in the new gardens and we are also going to grow our own vegetables.

“The aim is to encourage the youngsters to spend more time outside and they are really enjoying the new facilities.

“We also have a golden mile track which children can walk around and after they’ve done a mile they get a certificate.

“It’s all about helping to keep the children as fit and active as possible.”
