About Us

Doodlebugs strives to provide a loving, secure and stimulating environment that allows our children to grow as individuals at all stages of development through the structured use of play, music, arts, crafts and curriculum based learning.

Doodlebugs Nursery School aims to:

  • Provide a small teacher/child ratio of between 6 and 8 children per adult.
  • Create a stimulating and safe environment that is a home away from home combined with the structure of schooling - the best of both worlds!
  • Provide a warm and affectionate environment that will allow each child to learn respect for oneself and others.
  • Ensure that each child is important as an individual and will be treated as such.
  • Aid in the development of happy, enthusiastic, polite and confident children, prepared for formal schooling.
