The Nursery

We provide five dedicated areas for each age group

ladybirds - 0 -12 months at Bumblebees Day Nursery

Ladybirds – 0 – 12 Months

The Ladybirds main room and sensory room caters for our smallest treasures ranging from 0-12 months. These rooms are warm, welcoming and make the children feel at ease and happy to explore many different experiences.

We cater for up-to twelve children in these rooms. We also have a large separate cot room where your children can enjoy a peaceful rest. Your children will be cared for by their designated key person allowing them to build a secure relationship together and ensure your child’s individual routine is followed.

Caterpillars – 12 Months – 2 Years

The Caterpillars room has a large play space for the 12 months to 2yr olds where your child will have the opportunity to learn and play with their friends. It has a main play-room and a side room which offers sensory or quiet exploration areas, filled with open ended resources.

Both areas are planned and equipped for your child’s interests to ensure they develop and learn through their play opportunities. Your child will always have a designated key person who is responsible for your child’s main care and development. This area can also cater for up to twelve children.

Bees – 2 –3  Years

The Bees room is for our active 2 – 3 year olds! This room has a large main play area plus a side room for the children to access new play opportunities including messy play, a book area and role play to name but a few.

This room also opens up to a large covered decked area, where the children can access the garden for free flow or planned garden times. The room has its own bathroom where the children are encouraged to be independent as we support them with potty training, hand washing and good hygiene routines. Your child’s designated key person will support their development and help prepare them to become strong independent individuals.

Butterflies – 3 – 4 Years

Our Butterflies room is for our 3 to 4 year olds. This room has a large main area, with the additional use of the Hive space which we utilise throughout the day.

The children are supported and encouraged to make healthy choices and develop their own independence skills by self-selection of toys and materials. All activities are planned and equipped for your child’s interests to ensure they develop and learn through their play opportunities.
Free flow opportunities into the garden help your child develop self-confidence, stretch their imagination and build their esteem to ensure they are well prepared for their new life at school. Your child’s key worker will get to know their interests, abilities, likes and dislikes, to ensure when planning with the curriculum, their full learning potential is maximised.

All the children who attend The Hive have the opportunity to play extensive games and activities with their friends. Also they have access to the large garden to extend their play experiences further. If you require, we also have a homework station where your children can be supported with any homework set from school.

We’ve also developed a separate area that is used for the under 2’s to explore and provides a small haven of discovery.
