Bumblebees was opened in September 2006 with a passion to create the very best childcare any parent or carer could wish for. Bumblebees is a purpose-built nursery which can cater for all children from 3 months to 11 years of age. All the children have access to a large and secured multi-purpose garden.
Bumblebees is a family business run by three directors, Gemma Whittington, Jamie Whittington and Ian Bealey. Gemma has over 20 years’ experience in childcare and holds an NNEB and NVQ4, whilst Jamie maintains the administration and finance for the setting. Both Gemma and Jamie work on site and are supported by their full time Manager, Faye Thorning. Faye has been with us since we opened and has helped Bumblebees develop into what it is today, utilising the 20+ years’ experience gained throughout her career in childcare. Ian supports the nursery on an ad-hoc basis when required.
Together we appreciate the vital mix that is needed to provide the very best childcare. Bumblebees, the staff, security and the activities provided are all equally important and deserving of the very highest attention to detail. All the children and their parents or carers can expect to receive top quality care and a friendly welcome.
