Buds Program

Based in Sydney, our Buds program is a complete 1:1 program which incorporates home sessions, childcare sessions, community-based sessions and parent training sessions. Every step of our Buds program is to help your child to become independent across all settings.

The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) serves as the foundation for our Buds program. Childcare and community-based sessions allow us to help your child form connections with others, learn to thrive in different settings and to address challenges which only arise in those environments.

Meet and Greet

We meet with you and your child in your home. This gives us the opportunity to learn more about your child’s needs and for you to learn more about us.

Phase one

ESDM Assessment

We assess your child according to the ESDM curriculum checklist which covers: expressive/receptive communication, social skills, play skills, cognition, fine/gross motor skills and personal independence skills.

Phase two

1:1 ESDM Sessions

We begin our journey together by doing ESDM sessions at home. ESDM allows us to teach your child their foundational skills across all areas of development while also allowing us to build rapport with your child.

Phase three

Introduce childcare sessions

Once we have established a strong connection with your child, we will introduce childcare sessions. These sessions will focus on helping your child create friendships with other children and also to promote their engagement in the childcare setting.

Phase four

Introduce community sessions

These sessions help integrate your child into the community so that they develop their understanding of the community and how to become active participants in different community settings.

Phase five

Child starts kindergarten

The end of one chapter and the beginning of the next. We will continue to remain in contact to ensure that your child has a smooth transition to kindergarten. 1:1 sessions with us ceases.
