We strive to offer a program that meets the
intellectual, moral, emotional and physical
needs of each and every child in our care.

Ladybirds was established in September 2011 in a beautiful country setting in the village of Gracehill. It is a family run business and offers unrivalled facilities in our bright and spacious playrooms with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and the famous Slemish mountain. Our rooms open directly to outside the play areas where children can play safely and securely under the care and supervision of our friendly staff.

A home away from home epitomises all that Ladybirds has to offer you and your little one. The success of the playgroup has exceeded all expectations and has prompted us to expand our services. From September 2012, Ladybirds now offers full time and part time day care places catering for children between the ages of two years and ten months through to five years old.
From March 2014 Ladybirds now offers after school care and from September 2014 we are delighted to be able to announce the opening of our latest addition – our funded pre-school room.

As a foundation stage primary school teacher, Mrs Kathryn McMullan (proprietor) has the knowledge and skills to develop the minds and academic progress of the children she is looking after by following a planned curriculum aimed at introducing your child into school life.


Ladybirds Playgroup and Day Nursery avails of its surrounding with an extensive outdoor play area in a safe, homely environment. The inside of the purpose built establishment is vibrant, bright and stimulating. All staff are fully qualified and work hard to ensure each child receives the highest level of care and attention.
Our aim is to provide your child with a warm and caring environment where they can learn develop and play in a safe and nurturing environment.
