Welcome to The Ladybird Play & Toddler Group


We are an Ofsted Registered Playgroup passionate about providing excellent childcare for pre-schoolers.

Based at the Salvation Army Hall in Histon we are a popular, well-established community run playgroup that encourages learning through play whilst under the care of our qualified staff.


Our Sessions


We have three different groups for children to attend depending on their age, with each group offering creative play appropriate to the age level as well as song and story time. Our play environment consists of a warm and spacious hall and a lovely garden with a mud kitchen, play houses, play equipment and much more. For more information please go to our Fun Bugs page (children 0-5), Toddlers page (children 0-5) and our Playgroup page (children 2-3 years old) to find out more about each session and our provision for delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS).


Our Ethos


We are a warm and welcoming group that really believe in providing a happy and safe environment for your child to play, learn and blossom.


Our children benefit from excellent Early Years education that focuses on exploration and play, creating and making whilst having fun which helps prepare them for their next adventure when they leave us.


For our sessions where parents stay we aim to create a relaxing atmosphere where you can come and chat to other parents, grandparents, carers and build friendships in a supportive environment.


Registered Charity


As a registered charity we regularly hold fund-raising events such as discos, egg hunts, and Christmas crafts and are involved in local community events such as the annual Feast. We are run by a team of experienced, friendly and qualified staff and a committee of dedicated local parent volunteers. If you would like to get involved and be a part of our friendly team then please get in touch with us.


Fundraising as you shop online


Did you know you could raise money for Ladybirds through your online shopping?

Retailers such as Boots, Next, Tesco, John Lewis, Amazon, M&S plus SO many more all donate money to charity groups when you shop through the Easy Fundraising Organisation.

All you need to do is either register online or download the app (App store & Google Play store). To choose our Playgroup, type in Histon and scroll down to Ladybirds play and toddler group. That’s it, shop away until your hearts content.

Over the last few years over £400 has been raised just by shopping through the Easy Fundraising Organisation.

We really do appreciate everyone’s help and support, and this is a great way to raise money through shopping we already do.
