Betsy the bear at Bury College image

"I'm Betsy the bear at Bury College."

Betsy the bear loves going to Bury College although she sometimes has trouble choosing what to play with first! The child-friendly large rooms allow for lots of activities and independent learning and with all-day access to outdoor play she can be a chatterbox when she gets picked up.
