Bumble Bees is a privately owned day care setting which was established in August 1994 by the current owner, Angela Manser.
The Nursery is divided into 2 main areas. On the Ground floor the Nursery is registered for 40 children between the ages of 2-5 years.
The second floor is accessed by a video entry system at the rear of the property and is solely for the use of the baby unit accommodating babies from birth to 2 years.
The Nursery is currently registered for 58 children daily.
The Nursery area consists of 4 main rooms each equipped for different areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We have a craft /messy room, a soft play/dance and music room, a learning room with emergent writing area, book corner and computer and also a play room for role play and imaginative play.
There is also a well equipped kitchen for the Nursery use and low level childrenʼs toilets and hand basins.
Children have access to the garden on a daily basis to ensure that they get fresh air. The garden is split into 2 areas. The side garden consists of a large pagoda, providing a large shaded area in wet/sunny weather. This area is used as an outdoor classroom, for storytelling and for dance.
The rest of the side garden is equipped with a fantastic wooden climbing frame, bridge and stepping stones, with artificial stream/grass to stimulate the childrenʼs imagination and creativeness through play.
The rear garden allows children to be imaginative in role-play with the use of a wooden car and caravan. We also have a quiet area where children can enjoy more quieter activities including reading stories.
