Who are we?

The Kindergarten on a farm


Buttercup's Kindergarten is situated on a working diary farm on the outskirts of Calne in the heart of Wiltshire. Buttercup's provides sessional and full day care for children ages 2-5 years, throughout the year. Children are offered a world of learning experiences - from hand rearing lambs, chicks and ducklings, to splashing in puddles, growing vegetables and exploring the farm and surrounding village and countryside.

What do we do?



Spacious inside and out, providing the children with wide-ranging learning experiences. From painting at the easel to hand-feeding lambs, there is always something happening at Buttercups

The Farm


Located on a working dairy farm and integrated into nursery life, the children enjoy watching the passing tractors and waving to the farm staff. It's second nature here to pull on our wellies and walk around the farm and if you're lucky you can see a calf being born!

Well Being


We encourage children to make their own learning choices, giving them opportunities, equipment and materials to allow them to grow through developing their own thoughts and ideas.
