About: About Us
To provide a holistic approach to education, where children can thrive in an environment which values their uniqueness and creates the foundation upon which they can build their future.
Your child’s unique abilities and strengths will be expanded upon using our developmentally appropriate curriculum, with the support of our highly qualified and dedicated team, to achieve the following goals:
- Positive self-identity
- Emotional well-being
- Social skills
- Think, reason and questioning
- Language and literacy
- Creative expression and appreciation of the arts
- Physical development and skills
- Health and nutrition
- Respect for cultural diversity and community
At Ladybug and Friends Daycare, we believe when children receive proper nutrition, rest and interact respectfully with teachers and peers, their ability to engage in play and learning activities expands and their social relationships flourish.
