BumoTrust Verification

In the BumoTrust Verification process, we vet and evaluate each provider within the framework of the Four Cs. This process was developed by child care leaders, parents, and early childhood experts. Basically, we only work with providers where we’d send our own children!

Caregiving and Staff

Bumo interviews the leadership team and staff members at each facility surveying each individual’s enthusiasm for care and professionalism, ensuring that facilities give thorough background checks and that staff members have the proper training and certifications.

Curriculum and Instruction

Bumo reviews the provider’s curriculum to ensure there is thoughtful, age-specific instruction or care whether it is Reggio Emilia or Play-based, we want to ensure that there is intentional pedagogy.

Communication and Connection

Bumo assesses the ability for the provider to communicate effectively and honestly to families.

Cleanliness and Safety

Bumo visits facilities to ensure that facilities meet the cleanliness standards of a Bumo location, reviewing all rooms (from napping to restrooms) and outdoor space, and understanding cleaning and sanitization protocols and other health and safety policies of location. Bumo also does a thorough review of all licensing files.

Community Guidelines

Community Guidelines

Bumo’s Community Guidelines were created with Bumo Providers and families in mind to foster a valuable experience that is nurturing, safe, and mutually respectful. All of our users and providers are expected to adhere to these guidelines when using the Bumo Platform.

Safety and health are non-negotiable in the search for a child care provider.

Transparency and honesty are incredibly important when dealing with a child’s education, development, and care. It is important that providers and families are transparent with each other, communicating either behavioral traits or incidents honestly and promptly. We want to put each other in a successful environment – families should be transparent with caregivers and providers so they can be successful in giving the best care and caregivers and providers must be transparent with families.

A strong understanding that providers and families have a shared focus is incredibly important. We are all here for the children – we want to care for the children and give them the safest and happiest experiences. Mutually respectful interactions between providers and families is not only important but expected.
