Ladybird Nursery

'Working together, enabling each child to reach their full potential'

Situated adjacent to Southend Hospital, Ladybird Nursery is open to all although priority is given to Southend Hospital Staff.

At Ladybird Nursery we focus on the individual needs and interests of all our children.  Following the Early Years Foundation Stage, we provide an enabling environment and focus activities in such a way that each child is able to develop at their own rate.

We encourage and enable children to develop, explore, learn and create in a way that is right for them. Getting to know each child individually is a priority for our nursery nurses and carers and playing with them ensures every child is fully engaged in an activity. With the focus on learning through play we gently encourage children to extend their skills and expertise. Each child is allocated a "Key Person" who ensures their individual needs are met.

We understand how important outdoor play is for children's health and wellbeing and we have 3 outdoor areas providing the opportunity for children to access a wide range of activities on a daily basis regardless of the weather.

We would encourage all parents who wish to enrol their children at Ladybird to visit the Nursery and join our waiting list. Please feel free to ask lots of questions to familiarise yourself with our routines and do let us know of any concerns or worries you may have. You are very welcome to read our prospectus which provides a wealth of information about our nursery.

We look forward to welcoming you to our nursery.

Kind regards
