Bumbletree Childcare

Part-time care



“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.”

Need a Break? We can provide gross and fine motor play activities, messy hands-on crafts, snack time, outside play and early literacy sing song circle time for your child. Stimulating educational activities help children prepare for preschool and
pre-kindergarten programs.

This program is for children from 30 months up to 4 years old. It is staffed by experienced and qualified Early Child Educators.
