About Us

We are an established nursery with an excellent reputation. We have built up a strong, well-qualified staff team, who believe that every child deserves to be cared for in a safe, happy and secure environment.

Our Vision
A place where every child has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
Nurture......... Learn.......... Grow...........
Our aim is to......
.....provide a safe, happy place where everyone is known and valued, and where needs are acknowledged, accepted and met.
.....encourage each child to be independent and self-disciplined, to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and respect for others and the environment.
.....provide a stimulating range of activities.
.....develop a “can do” attitude that will stay with a child for life.
.....develop a child’s self-esteem.
.....value and incorporate all aspects of children’s lives, building a strong partnership with community and future schools. all children to make sustained progress.

Our Ethos
At Little Ladybirds our aim is to provide a unique nursery experience in a caring, safe and nurturing environment in which all children can develop and grow.
We value and nurture every child individually and offer consistent support to all parents in their journey through this experience, from initial inquiry to leaving to attend school.
Children are the driving force behind the nursery. The activities provided and environment created is centred around their interests and ideas. We value play as the work of the children and the process of learning is of greater value than the final product. We believe that parents are the main educators of their children and so encourage them to get involved and contribute information which helps us to work together for the benefit of the children.
Dedicated and qualified staff with varying experiences, who regularly update and evaluate their practice, help to support, nurture and meet the care needs of the children. We believe that children should be allowed to develop skills at their own pace and will never force a child into learning or independence until they are ready. Children are supported to become independent, contribute to the nursery and are taught to respect and look after the environment in which they live, as well as each other.
Our inclusive practice means that all children are given opportunities to access all areas of provision and are supported in their development. Little Ladybirds Nursery is committed to Safeguarding children.

Parents Comments about us
“The ladies who have looked after my daughter in the baby room and tweenie room are fantastic. I always feel assured that she is being very well looked after, and she is always happy when I come to collect her”

“I am absolutely thrilled with the care received by my two twins at Ladybirds. The extensive curriculum has enabled them to develop their learning and their speech. The staff are always friendly and make time to speak before and after each session. The freshly prepared, home cooked meals are an added bonus. Overall Ladybirds is a very well run nursery where I feel very safe leaving my children”

“The nursery has a real upbeat fun environment, when we come in there is groups looking at the fish, dancing, reading, playing with sand and water. It makes my daughter happy and me comfortable”

“Leaving my daughter at nursery has, at times, been extremely stressful for me as a new Mum, however, Little Ladybirds staff have helped me through this in that they have always been very approachable, caring and understanding. I feel my daughter is in good hands”

“We are very happy with the service the nursery provides and have recommended it to our friends”

“An excellent provider of pre school care. My son is extremely happy at Little Ladybirds and is reluctant to come home as he is having such a good time. Staff are always friendly, helpful and take an interest in the children. I have recommended you to friends and colleagues”
