The Service

I have put pricing and service details here on my website, as I want you to be able to contact me having read all the information in your own time.

Operating Hours:

Little Buds is open from 07:30 - 18:00 Monday to Friday.

It may be possible to care for children outside these hours, please get in touch to discuss this.


Little Buds will be closed for a maximum of 4 weeks holiday a year.  These dates will be released at the start of the autumn term each year and where possible will be during school holidays.  Parents will not be charged for any days when Little Buds is closed.

Little Buds is closed on bank holidays these days are charged for at the normal rate.  It may be possible to open if required with an enhanced hourly rate and sufficient notice (normally at least 1 month).


There will be no charge for any day that Little Buds is unable to open due to sickness.

However if parents or children are unwell then their normal hours will still need to be paid for as it would be impossible to fill that space at such short notice. Infection control guidance and time off as advised by the Health Protection Agency is followed.

Before and After School Care:

I am currently not providing before or after school care.

Meals and Nappies:

All meals, snacks and drinks on offer are nutritious and included in the price (for over 1's), if your child has special dietary requirements then either you can provide a packed lunch or dependent upon the requirements an additional charge may be applied.  Where required reusable nappies and wipes can be provided at an additional charge.  If your baby needs formula milk you must provide this. I support mothers who wish to continue to breastfeed.
