Through our sister nursery, High Bank Day Nursery in Stapleton, near Darlington, we are able to offer children at Little Ladybirds Day Nursery regular opportunities to visit a farm.

The mini-farm at High Bank was created and designed with the development of children in mind and comes complete with calves, piglets, sheep, ducks and hens.

The children can visit the animals via a secure walkway created between the nursery’s playground and farm area.

Hand washing facilities have also been installed so the children can interact with the animals, including collecting the eggs laid by the hens.

As a town-based nursery, having access to the farm at High Bank is a fantastic added benefit for children at Little Ladybirds Day Nursery.

If you would like to visit High Bank to see the farm, please get in touch and we will arrange this for you.
