The staff in the Ladybirds are:
Mrs Joanne Smith – Room Leader, Higher Level Teaching Assistant
Mrs Kathrine Taylor- Teaching and Learning Assistant
At Dallimore we are lucky to have a purpose built room for children who are 2 to 3 yrs old. Children can start in Ladybirds in the term after their second birthday.
The facility is, primarily, for families who are eligible for 15 hours free childcare but, if the space allows, we may be able to offer spaces for families who are able to pay. Anyone wishing to access either a free or paid place should contact the school office. At the moment Ladybirds is open in the mornings only.
The staff plan a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that develop the skills relevant to children aged 2 to 3 yrs old.
There are opportunities for the children to learn through play and develop their social and emotional, speaking and physical skills. They learn to form relationships with the staff and other children their age.
We are passionate about working with parents to help them support their children at home and will always provide tips and strategies where possible.
If you would like to find out a little bit more about LADYBIRDS please contact the school office (0115 9320741) to arrange for a discussion or a visit.
