Our Mission

We believe that by creating inclusive environments indoors and outdoors that are full of learning opportunity,  accompanied with the space to be creative, explore, have fun and make friends, enables children to feel safe, secure and happy allowing them to make memories that can last a lifetime.

The children will be supported and guided on their journey by a team of staff with experience, qualifications and a shared passion for caring and educating children, whilst committing themselves and the setting to continuous learning and professional development.

Working in Partnership with Parents

 

Baby's Days secure online Parent portal


 Busy Buddies believe in working together with parents and families. The baby’s days online Nursery  system we use is a bespoke application designed for Early Years provisions that allows the setting and parents to communicate regularly, to share the learning journey of their children. The system allows for parents to share home leaning information into their children’s journal capturing a holistic view of the children’s development. 

Baby's days has its own App that parents securely sign into, where they can view their own children’s learning journals and lots of photos from their days with us. The system also holds the settings policies, permissions and essential documentation at the touch of a button for parents to access at any time.

Forest School

This learner-centered approach interweaves with the ever-changing moods and marvels, potential and challenges of the natural world through the seasons to fill every Forest School session and program with discovery and difference. Yet each program does also share a common set of principles, aimed at ensuring that all learners experience the cumulative and lasting benefits that quality Forest School offers.

Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and complements the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.


The ethos is shared by thousands of trained practitioners across the UK and beyond. Its roots reach back to early years pioneers in outdoor learning and across the sea to Scandinavia.

Both our boys started at the setting in September 2018, i was nervous as my youngest was only 8 months old, but couldn't ask for a better setting and with nicer people, i felt at ease.  All children are treated as individuals and gets to know them well.  I connot recommend Justine and Chris enough and could not ask for more perfect setting.

Our son has been going to Justine and Chris since May 2018, we have been very happy with the care that they have given him since he started.  When our son started at the setting he was very highly anxious to leave me, this continued for several months, throughout this transition of me going back to work they have nothing but supportive to ensure that our son was happy, calm and secure at the setting.  We love receiving hand made gifts on Mother's Day / Father's Day and other special occassions.  

Our son is now a confident, thriving, happy little boy and looks forward when we go.

I would absolutely recommend.
