"Crawlers and cruisers at Ladybrook Children's Centre"

About: Ladybrook Children's Centre

(as the patient),

My child has been attending Sure Start sessions at Ladybrook for a year and a half. Sure start have been a massive support for us both, for settling in a new area, finding information on the area, schools etc. and giving advice on parenting and development. Sure Start helped my child make friends and really developed his confidence and social skills.

We have attended a range of sessions and themed days, he always enjoys them, but Friday Crawlers and cruisers being his favorite. He's built strong relationships with the staff and they always planned activities to suit his and the other children's needs and preferences. Now that he has started school he really misses coming.

When he started my child was delayed with his speech and language, so the staff arranged for him to attend Toddler Talk sessions and were on hand to help with his SALT referral. Thanks to their support he made massive jumps in progress, and he is now at age related and flying high at school. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your experience, it sounds as though it has been a great benefit to you and your son.

Its really good to receive feedback around the different groups that we offer the the themed sessions as this allows us to plan for the future, considering what you tell us.

The groups and sessions do allow us to see children at an early age which is great for picking up any early support needed around speech and language and other areas. It sounds like this really was helpful for you, and that your son has since progressed in this area, allowing him to start school ready to learn!

Thank you again and please come us see us in the school holidays.

Kind regards
