Minister for Education visits Ladybirds Childcare
Ladybirds Childcare, which is our social economy childcare and parenting centre, was delighted to welcome Peter Weir MLA to the site to see the setting and projects which have been ongoing during lockdown and are planned for the oncomng year as we exit lockdown. The Department of Education supports our early years initiatives to encourage children to reach their full potential and milestones, which we realise through positive play.
Minister Weir was encouraged to hear of the positive and proactive way the centre dealt with the pandemic, supporting key worker families, their children and how they remained open throughout the crisis. Tracy Harrison, Head of Children and Young People thanked the Minister for his ongoing support and the keen interest he has shown in the Early Years sector, particuarly during lockdown, providing additional support to help overcome business challenges.
