A warm welcome to Hummingbird Preschool's website.

My name is Ruth Benton and together with my husband, Paul, we are the owners and manager of Hummingbird. We are qualified teachers who have taught here in Norfolk, and around the world.

Paul and I are passionate about our Preschool. We have spent over 20 years, in different schools around the world, asking;

"What makes a good education for young children?"

We believe that in Hummingbird, we have found the answer.

We are a preschool which develops a super attitude towards learning, self-confidence and secure classroom skills, providing the best start to school life.


At Hummingbird, we offer:

  • ​Wrap around childcare Monday to Friday 7.30am-6.00pm
  • Daily sessions also available. (Mornings and Afternoons)
  • Small group sizes with highly qualified staff
  • Excellent resources and learning facilities
  • Convenient location on London Road (Next door to Hullabaloos)​​


We are flexible in our approach to the need for childcare, and can plan sessions to suit the needs of your family. We charge £4.60 per hour, £23 per half day or £46 for a full day's childcare.


We understand, that as parents and carers, choosing a preschool can feel like a daunting task, and that you may have many questions about your child's transition from home to school.  We are here to support you and your child through this stage in your lives.

We aim to provide a nurturing environment for your child, a safe place, where exploring and learning go hand in hand, and where you are listened to, and valued, as the most important teachers your child will ever have.

You are very welcome to visit us and find out more about what makes Hummingbird an exceptional place to play, learn and grow!
