"Ladybrook library"

About: Ladybrook Children's Centre

(as a parent/guardian),

I have used children's centres in the local area since my daughter was born 5 years ago. She was extremely shy and these groups really helped to develop her confidence and encouraged her to join into group activities. The change in her was truly unbelievable and it helped to get her ready for nursery. She is now at full time school and has been given teachers awards for her confidence and caring for others! I now also have a 2 year old boy and he too has been attending local children's centres since birth. Although he's not shy like his sister was, these groups help tremendously with social skills. He always sings the songs at home which we learn at the library and is getting good at the sign language too.

My only suggestion would be maybe switching to a bigger venue for the growing group.

We absolutely love these groups! Thank you!

Its really lovely to read your expereinces with the Children's Centre, and how they have helped both your daughter and son over the years.

It sounds like the sessions are very popular, and I am keen to come along to see these in action, which I plan to do soon. With regards to the venue, this is something that I will discuss with the worker, to see if there is anything that we can do about this going forward.

Thank you again for your feedback, it is appreciated.
