Bright Kids Crabbs Cross’ brand new ‘Sunbeams’ Room was officially opened on Thursday 2nd October by Worcestershire County Council’s EYCS Improvement Advisor Louise Morton.
The bright new room offers a range of exciting activities for 2 and 3-year-olds including discovery, book corner, kitchen play, role play, floor play, a sensory area and facilities in which to develop their knowledge and understanding, numeracy skills, physical play, creativity and understanding of the world.
The extension work at the Evesham Road site was funded by the county council under the Government’s Capital Two Year Old Funding, which aims to provide free 15 hour places for two-year-olds whose parents are on low incomes to better prepare children for school. The new facility has enabled Bright Kids Crabbs Cross to offer an additional 60 places to two-year-olds in the area.
Cllr Liz Eyre, Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Families said: “We are pleased to be able to support this project through our funding from the Department for Education. It is important for young children to have access to good quality provision to give them the best start in life.”
