Settling New Children In
Click here for the Ladybird Prospectus
Each child has a key-worker, who will get to know them well and be their main carer at Playgroup. The key-worker will ensure that your child is settling-in well and making lots of friends.
At Ladybird Playgroup, we work closely with parents to learn about the children and to provide updates on their child's development and progress,including via the what to expect booklet.
Snacks and lunch
Please provide your child with a healthy packed lunch, as we are not able to offer school meals at this time, and a drinking bottle for water throughout the day. We do give children a tasty and nutritious mid-morning snack however.
Please note we are a NUT Free, SQUASH Free Playgroup due to allergies.
Playgroup uniform is available to buy from our unifrom supplier Total Clothing Shop . Second hand uniform can be bought from the PLadybirds please ask a member of Staff for details.
Parents are warmly invited to spend some time with us at Playgroup, either to join in with play sessions and/or to share special knowledge and skills with the children. Could you, for instance, show the children how to play a musical instrument? Or perhaps give a little talk about your job? All ideas are welcome!
The children would love to learn from your experience, so please contact us today to arrange a time to come in.
Talking PANTS teaches children important messages, like their body belongs to them and they should tell an adult if they're upset or worried.

Beads of Courage Programme & Go Gold is September for Childhood Cancer Awareness.
September saw us support Childhood Cancer Awareness month by having lots of Gold activities & having Gold Pins/Wristbands & String of Strength packs on sale raising money for The Beads of Courage Programme at Addenbrooke's. This programme supports children through serious illnesses and treatment by giving them a different coloured bead for each medical intervention they endure.
