Buttercups Acton

A homely nursery, highly rated by parents

Welcome to Buttercups Acton. We are an award-winning nursery on Old Oak Road near Acton, Shepherds Bush and Hammersmith. Our high standards of care, highly qualified staff and our commitment to education have made us the exceptional nursery we are today. 

Our Senior Nursery Heads, Toni and Sara, have been working for Buttercups for over 20 years. They are constantly looking for new ways to develop the team and the nursery and believe in building fantastic partnerships with parents.

Great Facilities

Buttercups Acton is a homely nursery set in a 4-storey ex-vicar's residence with bright, colourful playrooms and ample resources. Our spacious garden is packed with toys, activities and things to explore.

Great Team

Our qualified, caring staff receive ongoing training, both on and off-site. This nurturing and development continues throughout their time with us, inspiring the level of care and education your child receives. All children are allocated a key-person when they start, someone who is committed to their well-being. We have a gentle settling-in process as we know that some children find it harder to adjust than others.

Child-centred Care

At Buttercups the child comes first and we have different resources to fit their growing needs. The Baby Rooms are warm and snuggly with a separate room for sleeping. Our well-resourced playrooms for designated age groups are filled with specialised play equipment. This sturdy furniture is made from wood, bamboo and other natural materials and encourages children to learn through play.

Our Preschool Approach

The top floor is the home of our preschoolers. Within it, our qualified teachers use a range of teaching philosophies to cater for childrens' differing learning styles and give children the best start possible. Buttercups children leave us for school with confidence, curiosity and a zest for learning.

Safety and Security

We have CCTV throughout the nursery and all our staff have an enhanced DBS check and First Aid training. Healthy meals are cooked freshly everyday by our own cook, who can cater for any dietary requirements.
