Welcome to Big Kids Club!

For those of you who may be new to Buddings, the Big Kids Club is our program of afternoon activities that runs everyday from 1 – 4pm, offering a more structured learning experience for older kids – and weekly classes that run seasonally.

We plan different hands-on activities for each day that help the children explore the world around them in ways that build connections to things they already know.  When children show special interests in certain things, we let them guide the play, fostering their natural curiosity and creativity. Central to our philosophy at Buddings is that children learn best through play in an environment in which they feel supported and valued for who they are.

From cooking activities, field trips, imaginative play, and artistic expression, our Big Kids’ Club offers fun, experiential activities that all kids can enjoy, but specially tailored for preschoolers.
