Bumblebees Pre School

BumblebeesOur new Pre-School class –  Bumblebees takes children from the age of 3.  We do ask that children are dry when they join our Pre School.

Choosing a Pre school is an important decision.  At Bumblebees, our small class size means that children have the opportunity for growth and discovery.  As the Pre School is connected to our Prep School, the children will also interact with older children, allowing the transition to our Foundation (Reception) class to be seamless!
