Frequently Asked Questions

Providers & Education

Bumo places a great emphasis on selecting and onboarding providers. Through our BumoTrust process (read here), Bumo is committed to curating providers that align with our core values of safety and trust, curriculum and experience, compassion and care.  

Almost all Bumo providers are licensed locations. Licensed exempt locations must adhere to strict guidelines that allow a licensed exempt status. 

We understand that every family and child gravitate towards different types of educational experiences and philosophies. Therefore, our providers represent a wide range of learning styles and pedagogy from Montessori to STEM-based learning. 

Cancellations and Booking

Families must cancel at least 72 hours before the start of their session in order to receive CareCredit that can be applied to future sessions. Rescheduling a session within 72 hours is treated as a cancellation of the original session and will not be eligible for CareCredit.

You can book as little or as much as you need. Some parents can book a half day – some a full day. Some mornings, some evenings. You can book once one month and 10 days the following month.
