Ladybird Playgroup

Ladybird Playgroup delivers high quality, accessible play and learning provision for children aged between 2 and 3years old. We offer a safe and stimulating environment, both indoors and out, where we encourage exploration, enquiry and discovery, with the aim that children’s positive experiences here allow them to reach their full potential during their time with us.


Our provision is focused around the seven areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), which we deliver within a nurturing and caring environment to give your children the confidence to develop their natural curiosity. Our planning incorporates the individual needs of each child and builds on their achievements to allow us to encourage the next steps in their learning. We observe and record their interests and achievements in each child’s personal learning journey folder and our practitioners use these observations to enhance your child’s progress. We encourage parental involvement by asking you to share your child’s development and interests at home, which we incorporate into their sessions with us. We enjoy close partnerships with parents and carers, which we believe brings benefits to all.


A healthy snack and drink is provided, which we encourage the children to prepare themselves under adult supervision.
