Bumblebee Children’s Charity

A specialist centre working together with families to support babies and young children with physical difficulties in a fun filled sensory free session.

Who we are
The Bumblebee Children’s Charity is an independent pre-school for children who have difficulties with movement and co-ordination.

What we do
The Bumblebee Children’s Charity incorporates all aspects of the child’s development (physical, cognitive, social and emotional) into its programme. Every child has different needs, so the programme is designed around the individual child and related to his or her age and abilities. The staff team are always there to guide and support. 

Parents/primary carers work with their child, usually as part of a group, using equipment, toys and songs to make the tasks enjoyable and productive. It is important that the parent and child are involved together in the learning process and all skills learned are closely related to those which serve a purpose at home.
