At Bumpkins Nursery your child will benefit from a loving and supportive environment facilitated by caring and qualified staff.

Our Nursery Manager, Nessa Taylor, has over 25 years of experience in childcare. She is responsible for a team of 40+ staff. Nessa is supported by Laura Geldart, Deputy Manager. Nessa and Laura are both working Mums, who understand your experience at Bumpkins both as parents and professionals. They are keen to discuss any aspect of Bumpkins with you, either in person on site, by phone or by email. We work hard to have good relationships and communication with all our families and want you to feel confident that your child is happy and content in our care.

We try to ensure that we have a diverse mix of staff at Bumpkins. Some of the team are newly qualified but the majority are established and experienced childcare professionals and some are parents or grandparents. We have a very low staff turnover, well below the national average. We are proud to celebrate long service and some of the team have been with Bumpkins ever since we opened in 2000. It is important that Bumpkins is a happy place to work, as well as a happy place to leave your children.

On-going training is offered to all staff both on-site and with external trainers. Training includes first aid and personal development.  All staff are expected to have a first aid qualification and renew this regularly. We run courses for them and other local childcare professionals at Bumpkins in First Aid and other topics.  All our staff have both an English and Maths qualification.  Some at GCSE or NVQ levels, and a few at A Level or Degree. We offer other training in a wide range of subjects such as Baby Signing, or confidence building how to Sing with Children.

If you’d like to know more about how we structure our staff, how ratios work and how we plan our day, please call or email us. You’re also very welcome to come and have a tour of Bumpkins– you’ll see for yourself how enthusiastic our staff are, and how much they enjoy caring for children.
