The Bumpkins Difference


Bumpkins Nursery is back to normal operations now, with our Covid-compliant modifications in place.  

All staff and children wash their hands thoroughly and frequently and the nursery is deep cleaned on a regular basis.  Parents follow a walkway to help with social distancing when picking up and dropping off, and we are operating a greeting service at the door as parents are not allowed into the nursery at this time.

We have decided the safest way for all children, families and staff is to create “Room Bubbles” within both main nursery and pre-school.  Each room bubble will have the same staff team in that room every day, and they will not provide cover or support anywhere else in the nursery.  This will reduce the risk of any potential cross-infection.  Staff will be social distancing for staff breaks too.

We will care for the children in family groups, so siblings will be together rather than split across the nursery.

With a number of our children going to school in September, we have vacancies throughout our nursery and are in a position to take more children.

Bumpkins Day Nursery provides quality day-care for children aged three months to five years.

We pride ourselves on offering a highly supportive, well managed nursery, where your child’s happiness is our priority.

Our main nursery site is based on a working arable farm in Whaddon, just off the A1198 near Royston.  The pre-school is at the far end of the village, a pleasant stroll up the road and across the village green.

All of our rooms are bright and happy places to be, filled with toys and fun activities.
