What we do


Buffy Playbus provides pre-school children with an opportunity to play, socialise and have fun in comfortable and safe surroundings under the guidance of qualified playleaders.  Mums, Dads, Grandparents and carers can relax and make  friends within their own communities or just "chill out" and enjoy seeing their children having fun.

Activities


On-board Buffy we have a vast array of toys and activities such as painting, playing with sand, dressing up clothes, a story corner, ball pond, role play area, Brio train set and lots of toys and games.

We always have a seasonal activity for children to take part in, such as planting seeds or making a craft item.

We have toilet facilities and a baby changing area.

Thanks to a recent donation from Tesco Bags of Help Scheme, we are able to offer a regular cooking activity.

We make a variety of delicious healthy recipes like Fresh Fruity Flapjacks, Savoury Wraps and Olive Bread Rolls. Just check on-board Buffy for our next Cooking activity week. 

No need to book just turn up. The sessions are most suitable for children over the age of 2 years. 

Each child goes home with the food that they have made plus a laminated recipe card.

This is a great activity for teaching children to share and take turns but also to try foods that they may not have eaten before.

Buffy is 

CrowdFunding!

 

We are crowdfunding to raise funds to create a dedicated sensory area on our new playbus. 

 

The space will be dedicated to the sensory needs of all children. We will use lighting, soft materials, inviting colour schemes and interactive play to provide a safe & comforting environment where children can learn & play. This area will give a feeling of independence and help build self-confidence as children explore different stimulating activities in a relaxing manner. This will be a special place where children feel entirely at ease and are able to initiate & control effects of the experiences they create. The project has real power to make a big difference.

 

Donors will be offered a wide range of rewards depending on their level of contribution to the crowdfund, which can include: a free party on the bus, invitation to cut the ribbon at our launch event in September, free entrance

for all the family for one month, your name displayed on the new bus interior. Most importantly providing our communities with access to a range of multi-sensory activities.

Why you need to register

Every September we ask each parent and carer who attends Buffy to fill out  a new registration form, to make sure that we have up to date contact details. 

We ask for these details so that if we have a problem with the bus or the weather is not suitable to go out, we can contact you.  

This will usually be by phone, text, email or socail media.

The information that you give us is kept securely and protected by the Data Protection Privacy Policy 2018. 

We do however have a duty to share information if an issue arises regarding the safeguarding of your child.
