CHANCELLOR Sajid Javid visited a Bromsgrove nursery following his announcement the early years sector would receive a £66million cash boost.

Children at Busy Bees, based on Stoke Road, welcomed the Bromsgrove MP last Friday, September 6.

Mr Javid promised the extra funding would support nurseries like Busy Bees, which offers 30 hours of free childcare.

He also announced more cash for primary, secondary and further education.

“Making sure children get the best start in life is incredibly important,” said Mr Javid, “which is why I’m making early years funding one of this government’s top priorities.

“The additional funding will make a big difference to children in my constituency and in every part of England.

“I want to thank nursery manager Nicola and the children for welcoming me.”

Mr Javid was shown around the nursery’s facilities before speaking in front of the children, who are aged between three months and five-years-old.

He introduced himself and announced his spending plans before explaining what the new funding would mean for them.

Global CEO of Busy Bees, Simon Irons, said: “It was our pleasure to welcome Mr Javid.

“We’re pleased that he could take time out of his busy schedule to meet us.

“The new funding is a welcome investment in the future of our young people.

“It will allow even more children to benefit from a place at nursery, giving them the best start in life and a secure foundation from which to learn and grow.”
