Reviewer Connection to Bumpkins Day Nursery

Bumpkins Day Nursery are awesome!!! It was an emotional time when I first left my son at 10 month's old at nursery, but everyone at Bumpkins were so lovely and understanding. We had several settling in sessions so we were all comfortable by the time the full days started. My son thoroughly loves his days at Bumpkins! And I feel confident leaving him there. If I want to check on him I can text or call in, and most days I get updates on his development and activities through Eylog. They are a wonderful bunch of people, enthusiastic and genuinely care about what they do. I'd recommend them with a big thumbs up. Thank you Bumpkins!!

Bumpkins Day Nursery is an amazing service provider of early years care and education. My son loves every minute spent here and is developing amazingly. They are very supportive, incorporating specific focus areas that we have been doing at home and that makes me love this nursery. What other nurseries nearby don't offer is the outdoor space and constant use of interesting learning and play in all environments. Finally the quality of food, both from source and how it is cooked is first class.

Our daughter has been at Bumpkins for 18 months and has a lovely time there. She is leaving soon to start nursery at primary school. She is ready for the transition but we will miss Bumpkins. The staff are friendly and very kind. It is difficult to leave your baby when you return to work but I was sure she was being looked after well and entertained all day.

Our daughter is lively, talkative and confident. She has learnt a lot at Bumpkins. Even when I collect late in the day, she is happy / busy playing. Often dressed as a princess or happy with a puzzle.

I will continue to recommend Bumpkins. It is a bit expensive but I really believe you get what you pay for!

Bumpkins is an amazing nursery. We are so pleased our daughter has had her last two years here. We put her in at just over a year and she has really thrived. What makes Bumpkins stand out is the staff. They are so committed and are clearly a strong team, reliable and skilled. Staff stay with Bumpkins for long periods which we felt was important for continuity. They have been dedicated to our daughter's development and also provide warm and nurturing relationships with the children so they feel secure and safe. It has lovely food, great outdoor space and location and creative activities each day. I would recommend it to anyone.
