Ofsted Report dated 9th March 2020

Inspection findings

Effectiveness of the leadership and management is good
The provision is good
Children are happy, motivated and making good progress in their learning. The childminder and her assistants provide meaningful activities that link to children's interests. For example, children enjoy playing with the pretend kitchen. The childminder develops this further into a cafe with lots of resources to help with all areas of their learning, such as, menus, laminated pictures of meals, dough to make food, and a till to support counting the money. Children build secure relationships with the childminder and her assistants. The childminder and her assistants have high expectations for the children, and children show high levels of confidence in approaching them for help or cuddles for reassurance. The adults know the children very well and adapt the environment and the curriculum to meet their individual needs
Children learn about healthy lifestyles and good hygiene procedures to minimise cross infection. They enjoy healthy and nutritious snacks and meals prepared by one of the assistants who is a qualified chef. Children thoroughly enjoy making cakes with him. They each have their own ingredients and tools and eagerly follow the instructions well. Once the cakes are cooked, the children decorate them and show a great sense of pride in their achievements.
Strong partnerships with parents mean that children are very well supported. Parents report the communication between them and the childminder is excellent and that they have the opportunity to share what their children are doing home. This helps feed into the childminder's assessment of their children's development, what they know now and what they need to learn next.
The childminder and her assistants have worked exceptionally hard and the quality of teaching and their knowledge of the welfare requirements. They are all clear on how they deliver purposeful activities that help children learn. For example, children make large eggs using balloons and paper in preparation for their Easter celebrations. Children show high levels of concentration and listen well to the instructions. Younger children thoroughly enjoy acting out the story about three bears. They have different sized bowls, chairs, bears and make their own porridge. They are engaged well because the childminder has used their interests and her good knowledge of their developmental needs. Children thoroughly enjoy the well-resourced outdoor area. The childminder and her assistants use the play areas well to offer different learning opportunities and encourage children to develop their own ideas and use their imagination. Children receive good support in their physical development as they use a wide range of equipment and enjoy the well-made mud kitchen, where they can pretend to make their own food. The childminder follows good procedures overall to support her assistants in their work with the children and their continued professional development. For example, one of the assistants is completing a level 3 qualification and feels the knowledge she has gained has been invaluable to help her in her role. They have regular meetings to reflect on the quality of teaching. There are effective methods to support children who are learning English as an additional language. For example, there are familiar words in children's home language for the adults to be able to respond to appropriately. They have regular story times, songs and rhymes, and the adults narrate what the younger children are doing to support their language development. As a result, children learn to be confidently bilingual. n Children's behaviour is good given their age and stage of development. The childminder and her assistants speak to the children in a calm way and role model expected behaviour to help even the youngest child learn about sharing and showing consideration to their friends. The adults use visual prompts to help with turn taking. Children know it is their turn next. n Children develop good early literacy skills. They are keen to find their names and put it on the board to identify they are present. The childminder reads stories using different pictures depicting the story and encourages the children to put them in the correct order. In addition, children make marks using a wide variety of tools and materials.
The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
The childminder and her assistants demonstrate a good knowledge and understanding of how to safeguard children. They have all received training recently and are clear about the procedures to follow if they have a concern about a child's welfare. There are good procedures to recruit new assistants to ensure they are suitable to work with the children. The childminder's assistant completes regular risk assessments and involves the children in making sure the outdoor environment is safe for them to play in

Hello Parent/Carer, 

Please find below my review for the Ladybird club.

We are very pleased with the level of care our daughter receives at the Ladybird Club. Teresa and her team are fantastic and really go above and beyond to ensure our daughter is well cared for in all aspects; on the educational level as well as ensuring the kids are having fun. It is great receiving the daily photos and videos as it’s so nice to be able to see what the kids get up to during the day. Teresa keeps a daily dairy which is sent home everyday which tells you what they have been doing during the day, what was for lunch/Tea and snacks and nappy changes.

We honestly have not got a bad word to say, we are so happy that we have found somewhere as great as the Ladybird Club  and we can definitely see that our daughter is so happy too. Teresa is also very accommodating if the occasional extra hours are needed. The setting is great too with plenty of toys and space for the children to enjoy and it’s always tidy and clean.

Hope this helps your decision.

Kind regards,

13th January 2018

To Whom It May Concern

Dear Sir/Madam

Teresa Speed has been looking after my son (now 7 years old) nearly 2 years. When I first met her, I felt that she was the right person for my son and he liked her instantly. As a parent with a child on the autistic spectrum (mild), I was very apprehensive that she would have reservations. Teresa managed to reassure me that she would be happy to take Him on and would work with me to provide the care he needed.
I can say that Teresa is a caring person and always puts the needs of the children first. I can confidently say this because; my son is always disappointed whenever he is booked to stay with Teresa and is unable to attend due to alternative arrangements.
I have also developed a good relationship with Teresa over the period of time and understand that she will go a mile to ensure that He is happy, for example on the days that the weather permits, she will ensure that she has organised activities for the children outdoors. She helps out my son with his reading and other learning activities and is always patient with him.
I would recommend Teresa as a suitable carer for young children. Teresa is organised, emotionally intelligent and diligent when delivering care to the children in her care.


My daughter has been with Teresa for nearly a year now and she is truly amazing! My daughter is always so happy to see her and gives her the biggest cuddle in the morning. Teresa is always so welcoming and happy to see my daughter. My daughter is always coming home with craft, cooking and I am sent pictures throughout the day of my daughter and her adventures. I couldnt recommend her enough, she's one in a million.

Teresa will always go that extra mile and that's why we love her. If you have any questions please do ask.

We do not offer over night care or babysitting.

Hi Maria Del Sette, we miss you! We were just saying how Teresa's was the best place for both our boys and it was our favourite of all their childcare. They are doing really well in Australia, it's so beautiful here. Wishing you and your family well xxx

Love this childminder!

I hope I find you well. Just a little note to tell you about LadyBird. Teresa looked after my two kids, now aged 14 and 12, for three years. She looks after them 5days a week. She's kind, trustworthy and she's dedicated to her job. She never let me down and she looked after my children like they were her own. Infact, she looked after me as well because she gave me a shoulder to cry on and an ear to rant on. My children learnt everyday from Teresa as she gave them different activities to do or write about. During summer time they went for walks in the fields and learnt a lot about animals. There are many activities she does with the kids, such as visiting the dentist to learn about oral hygene, hallowen parties, christmas parties, making Christmas gifts for the disadvantages and many more.

She gave them a healthy diet and cleanliness is her biggest motto. I would 100% recommend Ladybird to anyone who want a peace of mind when it comes to their children's care and safety. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need to ask anything regarding Ladybird.

Teresa and her family have made my sons' childhood development fun, easygoing, and comfortable. Both are growing and learning well with her and her staff. Teresa is the best thing that could have happened to our family.

This lady really does care about her work, she welcomes the children, offers them 100% love and devotion. Certainly would recommend her to anyone.

Teresa home is full of love, she very caring, offers the children so many activities and personal care. My son has achieved so much in her care and his confidence has grown. Teresa is a God send to us both. Tags# Amazing 5 stars childcare ladybirdclub Kate

I HIGHLY recommend Teresa and Deb at ladybird club. I was searching for so long to find somewhere suitable for my little boy who is one and my first so I was so nervous who to leave him with but these lady's made me and my son feel so welcome and reassuring us from first point of contact to getting pictures and videos of when he is with them once a week so I can have a break! they truly make it feel a home from home and they are so nurturing to both me and my son and I'm so thankful for them! safe,happy and learning enviroment. my son will be staying with them until school years now! Highly recommended!!xx

Thank you xxx

Teresa was the first person we left our nearly 3 year old at. She went above and beyond to make her feel at home. Allison loved having the other children around and today still (she is nearly 10)talks about the dogs, the bunnies and the fun times she had.
Teresa looks after the children like they are her own, she takes them out for fun things teaches them new things and above all totally loves what she does.
When Allison first started going, she was shy and quiet. She loved 'In the night garden'. Teresa bought the dvd set so she could watch some of it when she arrived, it helped her settle in. Once she started going to nursey, her potty training regressed. Teresa would pick her up from nursery and wash all of her wet clothes (accidents) from the morning. When she only just started going to Teresa, she took Allison to the mall one morning to ride the Christmas train, and choose a cupcake.
I could go on and on....... She is truly one of a kind. ❤️.

Thank you so much. I am so happy A can remember me after so many years.
We hope one day, when you visit Bournemouth, you will pop into see me.

Kindest Regards

My 2 year old girl has been going to Teresa now for a couple of months and we couldn’t be happier. Our little girl has settled in so well and absolutely loves her time there so much so that she cries when it’s time to come home! She has learnt so much already in the short space of time and Teresa and her staff’s efforts can really be seen in our daughters development, She has even started using the potty!!

The meals Teresa provides are healthy and nutritiounous and the kids are always kept well occupied either with trips out or other activities in the setting. I especially love that Teresa sends us photos throughout the day and It’s so reassuring to see her having fun.

I honestly couldn’t thank Teresa and her staff enough for all their hard work so far, they are are brilliant.

Teresa looks after my 2yr old, She looks forward to her time there and talks about Teresa when she comes home, my daughter gets first anxiety when I leave her but Teresa puts me totally at ease by letting me know that she has started playing and it's only a momentary thing, I would highly recommend The Ladybird club, and the new play area is fab for the kids, Millie comes home every day with her artwork, paintings and things they have cooked, you get way more than you would expect from a childminder like weekly take home books for you to share with your child, Teresa really cares, and I am very happy with this service :)
