Irish Girl Guides - Ladybirds

Ladybirds

Ladybird Guides are aged 5 –7.

Ladybirds meetings are described as "Every week at our meetings we take part in activities which include games, songs and crafts. We follow a programme which helps us to become more independent, discover the outdoor world and learn about the family of Guiding to which we belong. We have lots of fun and make loads of new friends."

The Ladybird Guide Unit is led by a Guider called Coccinella and she is assisted by other Guiders called Rainbow, Adalia, Calvia or Thea. The maximum number of girls in a unit is 24 and we meet for one hour a week. Girls aged 5 – 7+ are introduced to the principles of Guiding by encouraging them to share, to help others, to learn about teamwork, to enjoy nature, etc.
