Ladybirds (Nursery 1)


Welcome to Ladybirds (Nursery for 2/3 year old's). Our team leader is Miss Eyre. Other members of the team are Mrs Woods, Mrs Williams, Mrs Osborn and Mrs Kabasele.

Our Nursery is a warm welcoming and secure environment with lots of new and exciting toys, especially suited to our age group.

We have a 1:4 ratio which means children get lots of individual interaction especially with their keyworker. They especially like story time with their special person.

Some children stay all day and bring a packed lunch. If staying all day the children have the opportunity to take a nap in the quiet room or just have a little calm chilling time.

Our activity gym (giants, pirates, castle, boat or wherever their imagination takes them) and toddler boxes are fantastic for physical development; balancing, sliding and jumping! 

Cooking time is delicious and the sensory tray varies from having gloop, shreddies, rice, porridge, jelly and lots more. They love to make a mess with their aprons on! 

At the end of each session there is an energetic singing time with actions.

Outside has been newly refurbished with water and sand areas, chalk boards, a train and a role-play area where children can enjoy playing with natural materials. The bikes are a particular favourite. Here the children can develop their gross motor skills as well as their imagination, social interactions and language skills.

We aim to develop independent little people with a love of learning.
