About the employer
At Little Buds Day Care Nursery, we endeavour to continue our positive approach and homely atmosphere while providing children with a loving, caring environment. Managed as a family-run business, we strive to ensure that our ethos is fully maintained.

Our main aim is to provide your child with a secure, safe, and homely atmosphere. Each child will be treated as an individual and cared for by our fully qualified team. We strive to develop your child’s full potential, offering stimulating activities in a warm, creative environment.

Your child will have the opportunity to express themselves through art and crafts, imaginative play, and communication such as singing, dancing, playing music, and reading books during story time.

Children benefit from daily exercise, being able to access our three separate outdoor play areas. They now have the opportunity to enjoy our new gardening area and learn the skills of planting and growing their own flowers that they have chosen. Our staff guide children on the importance of physical activity and support children to climb and access the apparatus available to them.

Your child will be provided with the necessary equipment and materials that will challenge their minds to grow and flourish, in turn developing their interaction and independence skills as well as helping them to gain confidence and feel motivated to learn naturally.
