About Me

My name is Imogen, I run Busy Bunnies childminding, which is a home from home setting that provides personalised childcare for your little one. I provide lots of sensory and messy activities and we love growing our own fruit and veg to use in our home cooked meals. We love to get outside and often go on trips to the local forests, parks and fields! (There's plenty of pictures on our Facebook page if you'd like to take a look!)

The setting boasts a large outdoor play area with facilities for growing our own fruit and veg alongside a dedicated indoor playroom. The house has all been fitted with safety measures to keep little hands away from any danger.

I work with my assistant Joe to care for up to 6 early years children a day. We offer an inclusive environment for all and are happy to discuss any SEN requirements, EAL, medical needs or dietary requirements that your child may have.

I offer full time, part time, term time and holiday club spaces.

Without a doubt, the BEST childcare providers we’ve ever had dealings with. My middle child has been going to bunnies for around 18 months now and absolutely loves it. His progress since starting at bunnies is amazing, the trips and adventures they have are always so much fun for the children. It’s a real home from home setting which I love. Neither Imogen or Joe are shy of giving your child a cuddle or a love, which I think is super important. My youngest has recently joined bunnies too as I return back to work from maternity leave, and I have no concerns about her whilst in their care at all which is great. I love getting updates throughout the day on the app, and seeing loads of photos. The setting is always spotless, but the children are always messy which is the sign of a fantastic day! The energy Immy and Joe have really shows with the activities planned. Couldn’t recommend enough.

I feel so lucky to have found Busy Bunnies! My little girl enjoys her days there, packed full of fun activities. I love that Imogen & Joe take the bunnies on walks around the village and do a lot of messy play outside. It is so nice to know that my daughter is in a safe home from home environment. I have seen her development so much since she started 6 months ago. Her speech has come on so well, and her confidence around other children is so nice to see. On the days my daughter is there, I get informed of what my daughter is eating, her nappy changes and LOTS of photographs, which I love to see. It’s so nice to see my daughter enjoying her day while I’m at work. I’m comparison to Maisie’s previous Nursery, I can see how hot on Busy Bunnies are with their cleanliness! The house is always spotless and the toys are regular changed over and cleaned. You do an AMAZING job Imogen & Joe, I’m so grateful for all you do for Maisie. The best local childcare for sure!!

We feel incredibly lucky to have found Busy Bunnies. Our son has grown and blossomed so much since starting and he loves being there. Imogen and Jo have created an amazing setting filled with toys and activities geared towards development and learning. These activities change on a daily basis giving the children new opportunities for fun and learning which they look forward to. Holidays and festivals from around the world are celebrated, teaching the children respect and appreciation for other cultures. There are regular walks in the woods where the children learn about nature and how to care for the planet. But most of all we feel that Imogen truly loves the children and loves her job. She is deeply invested in caring for and helping each child as a unique individual. She is always available to discuss any challenging issues our son may be going through and works hard to find solutions that are tailored to his individual needs. Honestly we couldn’t recommend her highly enough and would give 10 stars if we could.
