Welcome to Bumblebees Pre-school

Bumblebees is a registered charity, who runs as a charitable incorporated organisation, Bumblebees pre-school first opened in 1989 and has since been extended twice due to high demand.

We cater for children aged 2 to 4 years and we are Ofsted registered to provide 8 spaces for 2 year olds and 26 places for 3- and 4-years-olds per session.

At Bumblebees Pre-school we strongly believe children learn best through play and our sessions follow the guidance of the early years foundation stage curriculum (EYFS) and our activities follow planning in the moment concept. Young children live in the here and now and we believe that to make a real difference to children’s learning practitioners must support children’s next steps when children first show curiosity.


We understand that your child is unique with their own personality and when children are allowed to select where, with what and how to play, they are truly invested in their play, they become deeply involved and make dramatic progress. Practitioners guide, inspire and support children, planning as they go and celebrate children’s successes.

We are Ofsted rated ‘GOOD’
