Little Ladybirds Pre-School


Little Ladybirds is an onsite pre-school for Nursery parents to access their free 30 hours entitlement in the afternoons. The pre-school takes place in the nursery classroom so there is a seamless transition in care for the children staying on after the school nursery class ends at 12pm. It is also open to children 2 years and up. The pre-school is run by Early Birds and Night Owls - please contact them directly for more information and to book a place.
