Welcome to bambooh Early Years Academies

bambooh‘s Intent

We intend for every child at bambooh Early Years Academies to reach their fullest genetic potential by embedding a growth mindset through stimulating, challenging activities and education surrounded by a safe, loving, and supportive environment.

By doing so, we, as bambooh Adventuneers set a sound foundation upon which our bambooh children can build a life motivated to challenge themselves to strive to be and do better constantly.

“Having to send my son to nursery was a difficult decision. I struggled with it until we became part of the bambooh experience and family. No regrets and – if you can find a space – highly recommend.”

Early Years Development

Your child’s development will be built on a sound foundation of 35 years hands-on early years development experience. Part of what sets us apart is ‘The bambooh Way’, our very own tried and tested development protocol which places your child’s potential at the centre of everything we do.

Safe Environments

One of our core values is to not compromise on our bambooh kids’ safety and special spaces. We believe behaviour is influenced by environment so you’ll find settings that promote security, where both teacher and children brim with excitement to learn, discover and play, every day.

Healthy Body and Mind

It’s wisdom as old as the mountains; a healthy body promotes a healthy mind. We believe you can’t get away from the fact that quality of nutrition is linked to enhanced development in our bambooh kids.
