Ladybird Nursery

Ladybird Nursery


Where children make a great start

Our Nursery is situated in a purpose built classroom joined to the Infant School. It is a fully integrated part of the school led by qualified teachers.

The children have free-flow access to a fenced purpose built outdoor play area designed to encourage and develop imagination and skills.  In addition they make use of all the schools resources including bikes and scooters and our “hills and hollows” outdoor area. The children visit the school library once a week to select a book to take home and read with parents, swapping it the following week for a new story.

We have places available for 3 and 4 year olds and accept both 15 and 30 hours funded. Sessions are either mornings- 8.45am to 11.45am, afternoons - 12.15pm-3.15pm or full day 8.45am - 3.15pm (including lunch).

If all funded hours are used, a small lunch charge of £2.00 per day will be applied. Funded hours can be used to cover lunch charges and breakfast club sessions. We have no consumable charges.

We can also accept children who may wish to pay to attend Ladybird Nursery if funded hours are being used at another setting. Sessions are charged at £15.00 and are invoiced termly.

Preparing for Nursery

Parent, Child and Teacher Meeting

Once your child has been offered a place at Nursery, an appointment will be arranged for a meeting. This is a time for us to begin to learn about each other. We can meet your child on his/her own ground, if you prefer, and talk about the things that will be available to them at Nursery. We can discuss likes and dislikes, special talents and needs. Hopefully it will be a relaxed time for us to answer any queries you might have and so prepare for a happy transition from home to Nursery.

Open Day

We have two open days during the academic year. One in October and one in June.  These are informal drop in sessions for you and your child.

What you can do to help at home

  • encourage independence in dressing and toileting
  • share books and talk about experiences and interests
  • help your child complete the scrapbook – ’All about me’ provided on the home visit
  • when you write with your child please could you use lower case letters, not capital letters. Capitals should only be used on the initial letter of names
  • When discussing letters and words, please use the letter sound as well as the letter name
  • enjoy stories together.
