    About Us

    Ladybug Crossing Early Learning Center has been serving North Platte families since November of 2012 under current owners Nick and Chantel Tonkinson. We are a child-care center committed to providing high quality early learning experiences for children aged birth -12 years old. We provide this care through a strong consistent staff. Our lead teachers have been with our center a minimum of three years. Consistency of staff enables the children to form a bond and sense of trust with our staff. Our staff are all trained in the Pyramid Model which has an emphasis on the social emotional development of each individual child. Our center is also an active participant in Step Up to Quality, Nebraska’s childcare quality rating system.

    We focus on providing a supportive environment through developmentally appropriate curriculum in each classroom. Children are taught expectations and routines through a consistent daily schedule that they are a part of planning each day. Our classrooms are inviting and offer multiple opportunities to learn new skills and use acquired skills through play-based learning. Play based learning is based on the concept that children choose what to explore that day and have a wide variety of items available to them to experiment with. We also believe in providing a nurturing environment where children are loved and respected.
