Bumbletree was an excellent place for my daughter to get acquainted with her neighbourhood, and gave her an incredible sense of independence at the same time. Bumbletree was also wonderful in helping me identify ways to correct or improve my daughter’s social interaction with others, and they were there with me every step of the way as we prepared her for the next step in her educational journey.
