About Hummingbirds

Helping parents produce happy, confident, caring children with a zest for learning and adventure is our main goal whilst making sure that our children are 'school-ready' and prepared to take advantage of everything the world has to offer.


We are committed to providing a warm and welcoming environment in which every child feels safe and special and to work closely with parents to ensure that children excel to the limit of their full potential.

Alison Pearce founder of Hummingbirds Nursery

Hummingbirds has developed from a childminding practice established in 2002 by it's founder, Alison Pearce (BSc Hons), mother of four. Our ethos is based on traditional core values, respect for each other and learning through positive examples. Alison believes that learning should be fun and that childhood is a precious and exciting time which lays down the foundations for life and future learning.
