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!
I am very happy with Yumbo Nursery. Very helpful and professional staff. They help a lot my son to go thru his first days in nursery. Kids have plenty of activities like trips to the public garden, forest, doing cakes and some presents for parents. They never get bored. My son love Yumbo.
My 3 year old son started here January this year as I took him out of his old nursery due to the amount of injuries he had at his old nursery, and I couldn't send him there as they lied about what happened, Corrine was absolutely fantastic and as soon as I went there to look I was very happy to say the least any son took to it straight away, he's so good he didn't even need a settling in period and has excelled in everything since he's been in there care, I have even recommended yumbos to different people I'm meeting, on his first day there he went to forest school and loved it and made a bird seed ball, everyday there out doing different things, they know exactly what there doing and is more structured than his last nursery, he's come home with fun work which is homework so I have things to do with him at home, he's counting better , knows the alphabet better singing more songs what's to do more craft things, they also encourage and celebrate other cultures holidays, this Chinese New Year they ate noodles, I had a beautiful candle in a glass which he decorated for Valentine's Day, the nursery is outstanding , I can't wait to see what else they have planned for the future, and I also love the fact that I can log on to baby days and see what he's done each day and track his progress.
My 14 month old daughter has been attending Yumbo Daycare since Oct 2015, it was a difficult transition for me returning to work but this was made very easy by the staff at Yumbo. I spent months looking for somewhere that met my needs. My daughter has settled into the setting extremley well & loves the staff there. They do lots of outdoor activities, arts & crafts, attend regular playgroups-all of which she loves. I am updated daily on her development with electronic diaries. I cannot recommend this setting enough.
My 13 month old has been attending this nursery since October '15. His bond with the ladies who work here is lovely to see. Working in a school I have high expectations of the care my child receives and i am happy to say that I feel 100% comfortable leaving my son at Yumbo.
The children are regularly taken out on trips to petting centers, crèches, parks etc. There are always activities within the setting and my son is always coming home with drawings, models and craft he has made.
The EYFS is followed which is reflected in my sons progress.
I would recommend rhis setting to anyone.
My son started at Yumbo nursery four months ago and has settled in really well. They go out daily for walks to the park and day trips out, they went to a local garden centre before Christmas to see Santa Claus. I am very happy with the care that my son is receiving and the wonderful staff that work at Yumbo.
My son has been attending Yumbo for almost 2 years and I will stay until he goes to school. The care he receives is excellent and he's always telling me about his adventures when they go out and all the things he's learnt whilst there. I'd highly recommend Yumbo to anyone looking for reliable safe childcare.
