What are the staff to child ratio’s?
We follow the regulations as set out by Ofsted.
Children under the age of 2 – one staff member for every three children
Children aged 2years – 3years – one staff member for every five children
Children aged 3 years and above – one staff member for every eight children
When a degree member of staff or our qualified Early Years Teacher is present with a Level 3 qualified member of staff the ratio may change to one child for every thirteen children for those children over the age of three.

How do you manage childrens behaviour?
Each nursery has a Behaviour Management Leader. Following our behaviour policy the staff team work together to promote positive behaviour. If there is a concern about behaviour you may be asked to come for a chat so that by working together, we can devise a plan that will best suit your child.

Can I book extra ad-hoc days?
Yes! If there is a space along with the correct available staffing, then you may book extra days. We ask for as much notice as possible and payment on booking.

What happens if I am late to collect my child?
Firstly – do not panic!
Inform us as soon as you know you are going to be late. We will arrange for two staff to stay behind and continue our usual quality of care until you arrive. You will be asked for a late fee to help towards staffing costs. See policy

Our Nurseries

Bumbles Nursery Maghull

Manager: Rachael Swain
Broadwood House
31 Northway
L31 7BG

Maghull nursery is the first nursery we opened. It is a large detached building located on Northway Maghull next to the popular Bobby’s Field, story has it that there was once a horse residing there called Bobby.
We bought the building in 2004 when it was being used as a Doctors surgery. Following extensive refurbishment, it became a lovely home from home for the children we care for.

Bumbles Nursery Aintree

Manager: Ayme Westhead
St Giles Church Hall
Aintree Lane
L10 8LE

In 2007 following on from the success of Maghull nursery where we had a large waiting list, the time seemed right to open our second nursery especially when we were approached by a local school to provide quality wraparound care for the children who attended their school.

Bumbles Nursery Orrell Park

Manager: Amanda Dryhurst
49 Orrell Lane
Orrell Park
L9 8BX

Following on from our success of receiving an ‘outstanding’ grade from Ofsted we opened our third nursery to accommodate our once again large waiting list.
Here in this large detached building we have aimed to preserve its historical character whilst providing an exciting and stimulating environment for our children.
