Our Core Values


Our Core Values at Buds

BBehavior We try hard to teach our children how to behave in a society of other children as well as teachers. This develops the social skills that are so important in today’s competitive world. Emphasis is on sharing and politeness.


UUnderstanding Each child is different and learning their individual likes and dislikes as well as their individual strengths and weaknesses are keys to our helping them grow and develop into more rounded individuals.


DDevelopment The real joy of running a nursery/preschool is watching and helping our children grow and develop. We assess their progress on a monthly basis and give our parents a quarterly report on their child’s development. Our small classes of no more than 12 children assure a good learning environment.


SSafety We take very seriously our responsibility for the care and safety of the children entrusted to our care. We have 2 trained nurses on the staff, padded play areas, locked gates, cctv cameras, and most important a pupil to staff ratio of 3 to 1.


Bi Lingual. While not part of our original name we teach in English whenever possible. We have 5 native English speakers on the staff. 10 out of 15 of our staff are fluent in English while 9 are fluent in Thai.

News, Events and Field Trips:

In December we had our end of Semester 1 field trip. All of our students enjoyed a fun and relaxed day of activities and games. On three separate days we took the nursery, the kindergarten-Preschool to the Phuket Zoo. The Primary school visited the Botanical Gardens. A good time was had by all. Check out the gallery for photos of the trips. On December 23rd we had our annual Christmas Party, Santa came to visit and had a gift for everyone. Thanks to everyone who joined us! We are very excited to announce that Buds has officially obtained a licence for the Primary School which means we can now offer student visas. Please contact the office for more details. As always we are continuing to improve our facilities with new books, playground equipment and toys. Be sure to like Buds International School on Facebook for more recent news and updates!

Primary School Curriculum:

We have made a major change and upgrade to our primary school curriculum. We have adopted the internationally top rated, “Common Core Curriculum Standards,” and have been using the modern textbooks that have been specifically developed for this standard. This has enabled us to provide a clear and consistent curriculum throughout the entire school at BUDS to ensure that all of our students are learning and progressing at a standardized rate that is recognized as being elite on an international level.

Sports classes:

We continue to offer swimming classes to all our students in the Kindergarten and Primary School. Since Phuket is an island and the culture is very aquatically based, we believe that teaching our children about water safety and progressing their ability to swim is very valuable and important. These lessons also help introduce our students into the world of sports which helps lay the foundation for a healthy and active lifestyle in the future. facebook
