Welcome To Ladybirds Playgroup & Day Nursery 

A HOME away from home’ epitomises all that Ladybirds has to offer you and your little one. Established in September 2011, the success of the playgroup has exceeded all expectations and has prompted us to expand our services. From September 2012, Ladybirds is delighted to be able to offer full time and part time day care places catering for children between the ages of two years and ten months through to five years old.

As a foundation stage primary school teacher, Mrs Kathryn McMullan (proprietor) has the knowledge and skills to develop the minds and academic progress of the children she is looking after by following a planned curriculum aimed at introducing your child into school life.

In a beautiful country setting, Ladybirds Playgroup and Day Nursery avails of its surrounding with an extensive outdoor play area in a safe, homely environment. The inside of the purpose built establishment is vibrant, bright and stimulating. All staff are fully qualified and work hard to ensure each child receives the highest level of care and attention.

Take a look at our gallery section to view the wide range of activities, both indoor and outdoor, that our children have taken part in throughout the year. We even have our own animals for the children to pet and feed like Rolly the rabbit, Billy the goat, our three goldfish, Bob, Albert and Sparky and Betty, Valantine and Gertie, our 3 chickens and our star attraction, Archie our golden retriever pup (see our picture gallery)
