Our son transformed during his time at Yumbo. Send your children here if you want them to be truly nurtured, by experienced childcare experts, in an inspirational environment...that is also like a home away from home. Nothing compares to their care. Thank you Yumbo!

My daughter has been with Yumbo since she was 10.5 months, she's now 3.4 years old and absolutely loves going. The team are dedicated to helping the children learn and discover something new every day. They are fantastic, lovely, lovely people. I was nervous when I started looking for childcare for my daughter as i was a first time mum and Yumbo was the place I chose, I made the best choice :) They go on outings all the time, the zoo, soft play centres, forests, the park and reservoirs (the list is endless) the team are fully trained in what they do so when I drop my daughter off, I know she is in the most capable hands which is reassuring. I have told everyone I can think of about Yumbo so thought I'd spread the word some more :) please go and see the amazing work they do and know your child will be looked after by responsible and fun people :)

My son has been at Yumbo for 2 years. He started when he was 10 months old. My daughter also attended the nursery for 3 years she is now at school but still talks about her nursery and all the fun things she did, she gets very excited when she goes back during the holidays. Yumbo is a small caring and nurturing nursery delivering quality care. The team are very experienced and work with the parents. We get a diary of the childrens daily activities which is wonderful and I can then have a chat with my son about all the adventures he has been up to. Both my children love the outdoors and I think alot of that is down to the time they have spent a yumbo going to the forests (forest school), park, beach (coastal school)etc and exploring all the outdoors. They do some amazing craft and activities. Yumbo team are also very supportive with working with the parents to meet milestones. For example toilet training. The small and one to one care helps enormously with this.

My daughter has been attending since November 2016 and prior to that we tried a different setting where my daughter just wouldn't settle.
I find yumbo's staff to be very caring and extremely passionate about what they do which is why my daughter settled so well. They build bonds and take time to do so, which is so important with such little minds.
Previous experience with other settings is that most just do a job and go home. With yumbo's it's a different type of setting where they are 100% more interactive, more interested in what the children want, more caring and mainly more interested in what the children need on a daily basis.
I wouldn't pick any other type of child care. My daughter will stay here until school and I am so happy that she is in good hands.

My daughter has been attending Yumbo since November 2016 for settling in and started 2 days per week from January when she was 1 year old and I went back to work. Corrine, Amanda and the team have been brilliant at helping my daughter to become confident and made every effort to help settle her (as she was never away from myself or partner before). My daughter loves it there and isn't even bothered when I drop her off in the mornings! As a first time mum, the team have helped my return to work less stressful and I don't ever have to worry about my daughter as I know how much she loves the staff. She does a lot of craft and they go to the public gardens and library. I love her art work and know being at Yumbo is benefiting her learning! The team work hard all year round and are brilliant!
