Buttercups is a family-run group of nurseries that has been providing outstanding care to children for over 40 years. Our award-winning settings in Acton, Ealing, Chiswick, Brentford, Isleworth, Teddington and Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire are all individually and personally managed. At Buttercups we see each child as a unique little learner. We nurture their natural curiosity, ensuring they have the best start possible.
We are recognised by parents as the childcare provider of choice for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Every Ofsted inspection we have had has been Good or better. Currently, 75% of our nurseries are thrilled to have been graded 'Outstanding' by OFSTED. Parents place their children in our care feeling comfortable, happy, confident and relaxed knowing they are in a secure, loving and learning environment.
The success of Buttercups is founded upon a fundamental commitment to quality education combined with fun – and plenty of time outdoors. Our philosophy is:
Quality Education – child-led learning incorporating Montessori and HighScope approaches;
Fun – a huge range of activities and specialist clubs including languages, sports and cookery clubs;
Time outdoors – our fantastic nursery gardens give children plenty of time outdoors and include Forest School activities.
At the end of their time with us, Buttercups children leave with confidence, curiosity and a zest for learning.
75% of our nurseries are currently rated Outstanding by Ofsted and all others are Good
