Welcome to Busy Bumblebees Montessori Childminding . We believe that all children are individuals learning and developing at their own pace. We aim to provide a provision that helps them flourish through activities that use high quality Montessori materials in a multi sensory approach, which is full of fun with exploration and discovery at the heart.
With a totally child centred approach and in using the EYFS and Montessori principles and philosophy, we provide a unique City environment with fantastic natural light and views, our approach covers skills including Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Numeracy, Cultural Studies and Creative Arts and Design.
It is important to identify all children’s strengths and interests at every stage in their development to ensure this is met. By working closely with parents, sharing observations and information about the child, tuning in early to the range of strengths, interests and passions of children as they begin to emerge, Busy Bumblebees Montessori gain an insight into their potential and plan opportunities that enable this to be celebrated and nurtured. The earliest years are a critically important time the work of Busy Bumblebees Montessori could transform your child’s future educational experiences.

"I am more than happy with the service provided by busy bumblebees – Montessori Childminding, l am impressed by your service, anyway thank you so much my child keeps saying Dorothy that means she is happy with you!"
We'd previously sent my son to a local nursery but weren't completely happy with it, so were very happy when he started going to Busy Bumblebees as it seems to combine the best of childcare (a lot of one-to-one attention and a homely environment) and nursery (involvement with the social side and lots of groups and activities). Dorothy is very highly trained and we feel relaxed that she is more than competent in what she does with the children. We are really happy with the care he receives, and it gives me peace of mind to know he is so well looked after. Hannah 14th July 2014
When we first met Dorothy one of the children she child minds for was nervous about us being there so she came and sat on Dorothy's knee and Dorothy totally reassured her. This gave us the confidence in Dorothy. She is great, very unflappable, down to earth and responsible. l really like how she is very focused on child development and has been Montessori trained. We get given a timetable of what she is planning to do with the children that week which includes going to different parks and drop in centres, as well as various activities at home such as singing, role play and creative play. Her home is really geared up and lots of parents use her service. Alice 10 July 2014
Dorothy is highly motivated and organised. She is Montessori trained and l really like how she is always striving to find different things to do with the children. Whether it's going to different parks or museums, she is very strategically located which is great. From a physical setting point of view l am so pleased that Dorothy's home has lots of natural light which is important for the children. Caroline 09 July 2014
