Why choose Budeez for your child?

There are a number of options for before and after school childcare in Knutsford including after school clubs, childminders, nurseries which offer out-of-school provision and, of course, Budeez.

All out-of-school clubs aim to help parents balance work and family commitments in a cost-effective way. For parents, this offers a convenient and affordable before and after school option – for children, clubs provide a safe, stimulating and fun environment where children can relax and play with their friends in a safe and fun environment.

Budeez offers all of these things and much more!

  • We are based in a central Knutsford location: St John’s Church Hall – handy for rail and bus links and with good parking for parents.

  • We offer children healthy and nutritional food at breakfast and after school.

  • We welcome toilet trained children (due to the layout of our premises and toilet facilities) from the age of 3, allowing them to settle into Budeez so they transition easily into school.

  • All our early years children have a nominated key person who supports their care and learning throughout their time at Budeez.

  • Our walking bus and Budeez minibus ensures we can collect children from different Knutsford schools.

  • Safeguarding is a big part of the Budeez staff induction process and all staff are trained to know how to protect children from harm.

  • All Budeez staff are trained in paediatric first aid and food hygiene.

  • Staff really enjoy planning fun activities for the children and play alongside them every session to support their learning, development, progress and enjoyment.

  • The children enjoy their activities in the club – they tell us that they enjoy playing with their friends – they say that staff are always setting up fun activities for them to use – they say that they enjoy their breakfast and after-school snacks.

  • We believe that encouraging independence is essential. Maria Montessori said it best: “Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”

  • We are very proud of our 5 star food hygiene rating from the Local Authority.

  • We have a named designated safeguarding lead and SENCO in the club every session.

We believe that Budeez offers the best possible quality before and after school care for our children – Ofsted agree with us and graded our provision outstanding in 2016 – 17.

Now under new ownership – and with an established staff team including a Manager, Assistant Manager and key staff members still in place – Budeez is looking to the future with enthusiasm.
