Little Buds is based in the Huddleston Centre in Powell Road and which gives us lots of space for your child to explore. 

We have various dedicated areas including a book corner, a home corner 

We have a well equipped garden with play equipment, a sand pit ….

We also have a small growing area where we grow herbs and vegetables, which eventually end up on our lunch tables. This helps to foster an interest in nature and the environment. Yes, that does include a fascination with creepy crawlies!

Settling in to Nursery 

Some children will settle right into Nursery routine and others take a little longer. Your child may need a little time to adapt being way from home and family. 

Our policy is to allow the child all the time he or she needs. Parents are encouraged to remain with their child for as long as is necessary. We do have a strategy for gradually reducing parental time in the Nursery, but it is at the child’s pace. 

This approach helps the child to get to know the staff and other children without feeling overwhelmed, and allows the parents to see how the Nursery works and to feel part of our family. 

Induction Procedure 

All new parents and carers are invited to go through our induction folder which includes our Nurusery Policies and information about the Nursery. You will have the opportunity to discuss any issues with a member of staff, such as your child’s diet, any allergies, sleep pattern and routine, and things that your child likes or dislikes.
