Bumble Bees

Getting the right childcare organised for your baby makes returning to work less stressful and a lot easier on you. You can concentrate on your job responsibilities a lot better knowing your child is in safe hands. This goes a long way to helping you balance your work and family commitments.

Bumble Bees offers a uniquely flexible structure to fit easily around your working hours, even if they vary from time to time.

Bumble Bees has a playroom, a changing area and a separate sleep room so we can accommodate the varied routines of different children. Our objective is to provide the highest standard of baby care, with a focus on individual interaction and stimulation.



When you’re little, every day is a learning experience and here at Capers, we make these experiences magical, memorable and fun.

In the Caterpillar Room, your child can explore the delights of being a child whilst discovering that learning for life is fun and fascinating. Our aim is to provide an ideal environment for your child to grow and develop, in an atmosphere of warmth, security and care.

In this safe environment, your child will flourish and will be encouraged to learn through play and given every opportunity to reach their full potential at their own pace.

Weekly planning ensures we meet the individual development needs of each child and closely follows the Government’s guidelines for the Early Years Foundation Stage.


Here at Capers, pre-school education is paramount. How each child learns is surprisingly different. We have designed our curriculum to focus on both early years’ educational needs and individual learning styles. We understand the importance of a healthy balance between adult-led activities and child-initiated play.

Our playroom layout encourages children to indulge in a range of self directed or group activities and we organise our education around the Foundation Stage Curriculum.
