JACKIE, AMER, ALEX AND AUDREY
I have had two children at Ladybird over the past 3.5years and now that the year is coming to an end an Audrey prepares for “Big Girl School”, I am sad to say “Goodbye”, yet very grateful to everyone at Ladybird for providing a warm, caring and safe learning environment for both our girls. The entire staff promote a love of learning and a love of children that provides the perfect environment for a child to grow and thrive.
Amer and I have seen such an amazing transformation in Audrey since the start of the year in the Blue Class. Despite a little bit of separation anxiety at the beginning of the year, Audrey has emerged as an independent and confident little girl, more than ready to start her early primary school years, both academically and socially. I have no doubt that the reassurance and patience that Miss Hayley and Miss Cathy Ann, as well as Miss Ingrid and Miss Razana have shown, were the reason she settled so quickly and continued throughout the year to learn and grow with such enthusiasm.
Communication between the Nursery and parents is so important to us and we found the weekly newsletters, invitations to concerts, sports days, field trips and Mother’s Day teas, the quick chats during drop off and pick up as well as the open door policy in the office and classroom to be very comforting. We loved the opportunities to see Audrey interact with her classmates and teachers as well as the activities she did whilst at school.
As well as the amazing teachers and staff, the Nursery itself is bright, cheerful, cozy and warm environment. The extension areas are beautiful without losing the warmth and coziness of the Nursery and I am so glad Audrey was able to enjoy the new areas during her last year.
As my youngest is poised to graduate from Ladybird, I find myself wishing I had another child so I could stay longer!
Thank you to Miss Cilla and her team for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out in the world!
