Hungry Little Minds

Children are likes sponges, everything is new and exciting and they are hungry to take it all in and learn about the world around them.

The Department for Education campaign Hungry Little Minds provides lots of ideas and activities that parents and carers can adopt which helps to boost children’s communication, language and literacy development.

Reading, playing and chatting with children are simple things we can do to help them develop, even when they are too young to say much back.

For lots of ideas and inspiration for different ages check out the Hungry Little Minds website!

Raise money for Ladybirds through your online shopping

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

Retailers such as Boots, Next, Tesco, John Lewis, Amazon, M&S and 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 Ladybirds 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. This is such a valuable contribution to Ladybirds and helps us maintain low subscription fees and invest in toys and crafts for the children.

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