Buds is the oldest bi-lingual nursery kindergarten school in Phuket with a time proven schedule and curriculum. The school was started in the early ninety nineties by a Thai educator to help her own two children achieve a head start while they were still toddlers. While she ran the school both she and the school were awarded many awards for excellence. She then sold the school and moved to Great Britain in 2004 to further the education of her now growing children. The current Holland-American and Thai management team have expanded and improved the curriculum by adopting the basic University of Minnesota kindergarten curriculum which incorporates modern educational thinking with the best parts of the traditional Montessori and Head Start programs. We have recently moved into a new purpose build new school building designed especially as a nursery, kindergarten and preschool.
