Ladybird calls on public help to boost soft play space

A SENSORY AREA and soft play space at the Ladybird Development Nursery in Lossiemouth could be dramatically updated – if the public get behind their latest funding effort.

Established in 1985 by the late Dr Ian White and his wife Anne, Ladybird was created to meet the need to provide pre-school care for children who required additional support in their development.

The centre is still managed by a committee of volunteers and has around 13 children attending at a centre that can cater for up to six children at a time.  The Nursery offers an exceptionally high level of support – mainly on a one adult to one child basis.

Now the nursery is bidding for the funding that would help make its soft play area a whole lot better – and have applied to the Aviva Community Fund for inclusion in their public vote.

A spokeswoman told insideMORAY: “We would very much appreciate it if people could spare a few minutes to register their vote for us at – doing so will mean a great deal to us.

“Everyone can use up to ten votes that can be spread amongst different candidates – or all allocated to Ladybird Development Nursery.  Registration is a very simple thing to do – and once you have voted, you also have an opportunity to win some great prizes.”
