Leelas Ladybirds, a local family run business, first opened its doors to the public as a crèche/children’s centre in August 2015. In January 2016, it became a private day nursery and, just 14 months later, was awarded an impressive first OFSTED rating of “Good”.
Situated next to Wycliffe CE Primary School on John Street in Shipley, Leelas Ladybirds offers a whole host of fantastic services for local families including private and funded nursery school places, flexible crèche facilities, before and after school childcare options and holiday clubs.
Nursery & Crèche Provision
The nursery provides childcare for children aged 0-5 years old, with free early education places available for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds. Currently split into two rooms, the Caterpillar Room caters for children aged 0-2 years old, and the larger Ladybird Room for children aged 2-5 years old. As well as a creative outdoor space for the children to enjoy, each of the two nursery rooms offer a wide variety of learning areas, specifically designed to promote discovery, play and development.
Leelas Ladybirds offers standard full and half day nursery sessions, but very much stands out from the crowd in terms of the flexibility of their provision. Whether you are in need of planned long-term or flexible short-notice childcare, Leelas Ladybirds are committed to finding solutions that work for you – just get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
Before, After School & Holiday Clubs
Before and after school childcare is provided in the Flutter-Bug room, a particularly handy option if your child attends neighbouring Wycliffe CE Primary School. During the school holidays, Leelas Ladybirds also runs holiday clubs which offer a mixture of crafts and activities, including themed days, which are suitable for children of all ages.
Stay & Play, Parties & Room Hire
Please note that due to the success of the growing nursery, the Stay & Play room is now being converted into a nursery space for children who are 3+. As a result, this facility will no longer be available for the general public to use for Stay & Play, parties or room hire.
