We are delighted to be back in Little Buds.  Things are a bit different, but we are still making learning fun.  



Little Buds playgroup open its doors for the first time on 3rd September 2011.  Starting with eight children, it has now grown to the full capacity of 26 children per day.  Little Buds is a community run playgroup, with members including parents and members of Mount St Catherine’s P.S.  It is registered through Southern Health and Social Services.  At present, there are three qualified members of staff. Staff are trained in the Eager and Able to Learn programme that is implemented on a daily basis in the playgroup.

Little Buds offers a friendly, welcoming environment.  Children are encouraged to explore materials, problem solve and to resolve their own conflicts, allowing them to gain a love to learn and independence. 

If you would like to visit Little Buds, drop us a line or pop in.  If you like anymore information, please click on contact us and fill in the details needed.  We will get back to you as soon as we can.
