Welcome to our Playgroup


Ladybird Playgroup is a vibrant and fun, 24-place setting, for children aged two and a half to four and a half years of age.

Having first opened our doors nearly 25 years ago, Ladybird Playgroup has gone from strength to strength and now operates from a fantastic modern purpose-built building, within the grounds of Thriplow Primary School.

We have recently transferred to become a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) and are run by the Committee, a voluntary parent committee and a dedicated staff of experienced and well-qualified workers, who are employed in accordance with Cambridgeshire County Council and Young People Services.


 Due to COVID restrictions we are unfortunately not able to offer open days whilst Ladybirds is in operation.  We have been organising some socially distanced/appointment based walk around the playgroup for prospective families on a Saturday morning.


Next Open Morning is Saturday 10th July from 10am.

We will ask all adults to wear masks, and everyone must hand sanitise on entry to the school site and into the Playgroup building.
