Located less than 5 minutes’ walk from both Anerley and Penge West train stations, Ladybird Anerley is our very first setting which was taken over in 1995 and has been rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

Nursery details

The nursery is based over two floors in a modernised and spacious Victorian house and can accommodate 45 children daily between the ages of 3 months and 5 years. The pre-schoolers (3-5years) are based on the first floor in two rooms, whilst the babies (3 months to 2 years) and toddlers (2-3 years) are based downstairs in three separate rooms on the ground floor.

The nursery is fully air-conditioned and is installed with comprehensive CCTV security systems. It is also fully furnished with the highest quality furniture, with a large array of items from Community Playthings.

There is a playground to the rear of the nursery, which your child will enjoy come rain or shine due to the part-covered area. The area has a soft play surface as well as various outdoor toys and things to explore.

Parent Reviews


​My two sons have attended Ladybird Anerley (1st from age 12 months to 4.5 years and 2nd from 8 months to 23 months). We are only leaving the nursery as we are moving out of London, and are very sad to be saying goodbye to Ladybird.

​My daughter loved going to Ladybird Nursery. The staff took such good care of her. She developed incredibly after starting nursery, her language is clear and at 18 months she is saying over 50 words. The menu is well balanced and she also now eats a wider range of food thanks to what she was introduced to at nursery.


​My son has been at the nursery since he was 1 year old and could not be happier. Lots of messy play and group activities, which he loves. He has also learnt many new habits and skills from attending here, which has resulted in him being incredibly sociable and good at playing with others.

Meet Our Manager


I have worked in childcare for the last 30 years, and have worked at Ladybird since 2011. My passion, hard work and drive has enabled me to work my way up to become Nursery Manager. I have always loved working with children and there is nothing more rewarding than watching them flourish and grow in a nurturing environment, which has always been my aim to provide. Working at Ladybird is like being part of a big family where parents, children and staff all contribute to make this nursery the amazing place it is.
