Bumblebees (formerly known as Little Friends) is a group designed to meet the particular needs of 2-3 year olds. We offer a diverse range of play experiences planned to engage 2-3 year olds at this particular stage of their development, and to promote their future progress and learning. Children are eligible to start from the term after their second birthday and can remain in Bumblebees until the end of the term of their third birthday.
Bumblebees is a privately funded provision run by Lanterns Nursery School and Children's Centre. You are able to place your child on the waiting list the term after they turn 1. We have a maximum of 16 children per session. The administration for Bumblebees is dealt with by Sandrine who can be contacted on 07876 626372.

VERY IMPORTANT: PARENTS MUST REGISTER THEIR CHILDREN SEPARATELY FOR A PLACE IN THE LANTERNS NURSERY SCHOOL (3-4 year olds) and will not be guaranteed a place as a progression from Bumblebees.

We are also able to offer a number of funded places through the Government 2 year old funding scheme.
