Our carefully chosen team consists of a qualified Teacher, an Early Years Professional and qualified Nursery Nurses along with Nursery Assistants who are working towards their qualification under our guidance. Every member of staff is DBS checked prior to starting work at Bumbles.

Please see below for a detailed description of the management team...

The Family Tree...

James & Tracy are the owners of the building in which Bumbles is situated and are the amazing parents of Linzi & Danielle. James & Tracy have encouraged and supported the decision to open Bumbles from the very beginning, allowing the dream to become a reality. 

James could see the full potential of the building and prioritised the renovation over his own company, ensuring the building works were finished to a very high standard.

Working in a primary school for over 20 years, Tracy has gained a vast amount of knowledge and understanding of children at primary school age. Leaving her colleagues and the children after such a long time, was a very difficult and brave decision. One we are extremely happy she made.

We pride ourselves in working as a family unit, providing inclusion and equality for all children. This creates a warm, loving and welcoming 'home from home' environment, where the child is at the heart of all we do.

Linzi Poutch

Managing Director

BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies & Early Years Professional Status (EYPS)

Linzi has joint ownership of Bumbles and manages the setting alongside her sister Danielle (below). Linzi has worked in childcare since the age of 18, gaining 12 years experience working with children aged 0-12 years. Linzi started her journey as an apprentice and continually studied over 7 years to gain her degree and EYP qualification. Linzi has managed a private day nursery in the past and has worked in a school nursery setting as a Nursery Officer. Linzi also has a two year old son, gaining experience as a parent has only added to her existing understanding of children. Both Linzi and Danielle are always available for parents and either one is onsite to meet and greet parents both morning and evening and throughout the day.

Danielle Moy

Managing Director

BA Hons in Primary Education & 

Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

Danielle is also the owner of Bumbles, alongside her sister Linzi. Danielle will be managing Bumbles and will be available throughout the day. Danielle qualified as a teacher in 2013 and has worked at a Primary School in Leeds since then. Danielle has a vast amount of experience, particularly with children aged 4-8 years. Danielle has previously led Phonics and has incredible knowledge, not only in teaching children how to read and recognise sounds, but allowing them to have fun whilst doing so. Danielle is particularly recognised for her strong partnerships with parents and her ability to include them in their child's learning and development.

Due to her previous experience, Danielle's ability to prepare children for school will be of great benefit to the children, particularly in Sunflowers (3-5 years).
