Little Buds is our much loved and very popular playgroup and a support group for both new parents and existing parents. The playgroup is Forest School inspired and centres on the children leading their own exploration and play.

On arrival, the children are given their very own explorers bag with exciting props such as binoculars, bug pots, magnifying glasses, trowels, jugs and many, many more pieces.

Little Bud’s takes place outdoors and is structured around the children exploring our area at their own pace, seasonal eco crafts to dip in and dip out of and finished off around the campfire toasting marshmallows.

The group runs on Monday, Tuesday and Friday with two morning sessions 9:45 – 10.45 am and 11 – 12 pm.

It takes place in our safe and secure site, Project Dirt, where children are able to explore freely alongside their grown-ups.

“Amazing little playgroup. My little boy absolutely loves coming to little buds! He asks almost every day is it time to go, “me love it there mam”. There’s always so much for the children to explore and get their hands into! There’s no set structure of how the session should go it’s all about exploring and having fun but developing skills and understanding of the world we live in! The teaching is amazing everything is well thought out and set out, they follow government guidelines to a high standard to ensure that safety is to the highest standard. It’s always fun and we’re always excited to come back! 😊”
