About Longton Ladybirds

Longton Ladybirds is a fully inclusive setting, and a registered charity with a parent committee.  We aim to provide a safe, happy and nurturing  environment where your child can learn through play, make friends   and gain confidence.

Each child is treated as an individual, according to his /her needs. We welcome children with additional needs or disabilities and can provide support, information and resources.

We are a small qualified well established team, with a wealth of experience.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework with an emphasis on learning through play. We provide well resourced continuous provision both indoor and out.  Children each have a key-person and learn through a mix of adult led and child initiated activities.

Staff, parents and carers work in close partnership to ensure the best possible outcomes for all children in the nursery.
