One adult to 6 children

Firstly, Buzy Bees has a 1:6 ratio; this means one adult to six children. All adults presently employed in Buzy Bees are trained or in the process of embarking on courses to ensure high standards of care for your child. We feel that young children must progress at their own rate, building on their own experiences. The adults working with them need to be sensitive to every individual child’s stage of development to help them move on from the standards they have already reached. Well organised and appealing play activities, combined with sensitive adult input is one of, if not the most effective means of ensuring learning.

Learning while having fun

The activities planned each week are a selection of focussed activities where an adult initiates play and works with the children making observations while they have fun! or planned opportunities where the children can freely go and do their own thing, using their imaginations and thinking up their own ideas: an adult will be nearby to help them develop their ideas or guide them if need be. Providing an environment for enjoyment and achieving meets one of the aims of the EYFS.
