What you will do in your working day

Here at Bumbles we strive to get the best out of our staff members and are constantly encouraging them to flourish. We do regular team building activities and we also have a monthly Staff Recognition Scheme. We offer supportive and robust training plan to help with your continuous professional development to help you flourish in your role. Not only will you earn as you learn, but the qualification will give you practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge, leading to a wide range of job opportunities. We have many opportunities for carer progression, and we like to promote from within.

Here at Bumbles we have a shared vision that all children should be able to follow their dreams. With this at the heart of everything we do we feel passionately about providing an environment where children feel safe and happy. When a child is safe and happy, they can grow in confidence enabling them to actively engage with their peers and the activities around them.

By having successful relationships with their peers, children then share experiences and different ideas between each other. They learn about friendships and how to negotiate with others. Our qualified and nurturing staff team can help develop and further support each child’s confidence by providing the children with activities which encourage them to become inquisitive learners. We feel that if children are happy and interested then they will learn much more than if they are not interested or comfortable in their surroundings.

At Bumbles we are proud to be a part of creating the building blocks to give children the tools to move onto school with confidence and inquisitiveness.
