“I work with Foundation Stage 1 pupils and Busy Things is a fantastic resource to support our pupil's learning. It works well alongside the EYFS curriculum, supporting children in all areas of the curriculum by learning through play.”

Jeanette Hartley at Stanley Infant and Junior School

“We chose Busy Things as we wanted a programme that covered the EYFS curriculum and which the pupils could access at school and at home. We wanted to know that every activity that they went on was clearly tied to a learning outcome and was not just designed as an eye-catching gimmick.”

Heather Eriksen at Royston St John Baptist CE Primary
