Water Play & Swim
Little Buds runs a structured and scheduled program but allows for observed free play. Research indicates a greater developmental and social need for this age group to experience unguided free play. To create a creative environment we have water tables, sand tables, plenty of dress up clothes, toys and activities, inflatable water slide and pools to help spark the imagination and fun. This is a very important learning time as children learn to interact through play.
