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.

To Whom It May Concern
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
INSPECTION BY OFSTED
Inspection report: Clark, Teresa Frances, 16 March 2016 3 of 5
Effectiveness of the leadership and management is good
The childminder uses her childcare qualification well, sharing the skills she has learned
and offering her assistant practical supervision. Arrangements for safeguarding are
effective. The childminder ensures that both she and her assistant are fully aware of the
possible signs that would raise concerns about children's welfare and know the process for
reporting these. The childminder carefully assesses outings and ensures that children are
always supervised. She makes sure that Ofsted is informed of any changes that may affect
her work, further promoting children's welfare. The childminder shares information with
other childcare providers so that children's learning is not interrupted as they move
between settings. The childminder has developed the ongoing evaluation of her practice
so that she makes relevant changes that improve the provision for children.
Quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good
The childminder plans activities well so that these support children's learning. For
example, children explore a tray of cereal. They use different implements to scoop and
pour the cereal. They describe the texture and use weighing scales. Activities such as
these encourage children to explore and support them in developing their language and
mathematical skills. The childminder interacts well with children and helps them to extend
their play. For example, children explore toy farm animals and the childminder offers them
a construction set. They work out how to build walls to make fields and farm buildings.
The childminder uses children's interests as a way of building on their learning. Children's
fascination with construction vehicles is extended as they play with toy vehicles, read
associated books and visit a farm to look at other vehicles.
Personal development, behaviour and welfare are good
The childminder establishes good partnerships with parents and gains a thorough
understanding of each child's needs. She shares this information with her assistant so that
children feel secure and comfortable with each of the adults. Practical activities, such as a
visit to the dentist, help children understand how to keep their bodies healthy. Children
enjoy a variety of activities that promotes their physical development. For example, they
participate in action rhymes and visit the local park. The childminder works sensitively with
each child. She builds their confidence and self-esteem so that they are emotionally secure
in readiness for starting school. For example, she quickly notes children's efforts and
praises these. She also helps them to recognise their achievements, such as learning to fit
construction blocks together.
Outcomes for children are good
All children are making good progress. They are keen to learn and show a positive
response to challenges or new experiences. They are gaining the essential skills that
support their ability to learn and prepare them for the move to school. They enjoy their
daily interactions with the childminder and other children, and learn to work amicably

All new parents will be given a welcome pack filled with goodies and documentation

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
Response by Teresa Clark speed on 08/03/2019:
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. ❤️.
Response by Teresa Clark speed on 03/03/2019:
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.
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.
Response by Teresa Clark speed on 19/02/2019:
Thank you for your kind words.
Kind regards Teresa xx
Our daughter has been going to Teresa for almost two months now and we are extremely delighted with our decision.
Teresa has been so flexible especially with my other half who works shifts.
Our daughter enjoys her time with Teresa everyday she looks forward to seeing her and the other children.
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 :)
