Though it was the first nursery we went to see from the moment we stepped through the door we knew that Ladybird was the right place for Owen. There was something about the atmosphere that made it feel like you were being invited to join a family, not a work place. Thanks to the amazing Miss Emma and the team in Rainbow class, Owen soon settled into the daily routine and within a couple of weeks it was obvious that we had made the right choice as Owen was clearly enjoying being there. Some days I didn’t even get a goodbye!
Owen started at Ladybird when he was 14 months old, and I can’t quite believe his Ladybird journey is over. The last 2 1/2 years have flown by. Owen has gone from being a toddler thrust into a new environment to become an inquisitive, precocious, caring and thoughtful young man who acts far older than his age.
I love watching him interact with his class mates and seeing how ‘grown up’ he has become. They way they all help each other, and create games with their imaginations is just heart warming.
The new facilities are amazing and Owen has enjoyed everything it has to offer, particularly the soft play area and splash pad; where I’m told he was usually the last to leave.
I can’t say enough good things about Ladybird, Miss Helen and the rest of the team. Every staff member makes Ladybird a warm and welcoming place and you can’t help but smile as you walk through the building watching all the children engrossed in their activities.
It is a privilege for Owen to have attended such an amazing nursery during our time in Dubai. I know he is going to miss you all, but I cannot thank you enough for the amazing start in life you have given him.
