Nursery details

The nursery is based over two floors in a modernised and spacious Edwardian house and can accommodate 40 children daily between the ages of 3 months and 5 years. The pre-schoolers (3-5 years) and toddlers (2-3 years) are based on the ground floor in two large open plan rooms, whilst the babies (3 months - 2 years) are based on the first floor in two rooms.

The nursery is fully air-conditioned and is installed with comprehensive CCTV security systems. It is fully furnished with the highest quality furniture, with a large array of items from Community Playthings. An oasis of calm, there is a sensory room within the nursery filled with light, colour, texture and sound, allowing children to develop and engage their senses.

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 daughter attended Ladybird for eighteen months after moving from overseas, until she went to school this week. She absolutely loved her time at the nursery and was in both the toddler rooms and subsequently pre-school.

​Claire D.

​We have been using this nursery for both our children for over 4 years. Nothing but praise and gratitude for all of the staff at Ladybird. My children have developed and thrived so much in this environment and we all formed such lovely bonds with the staff.

​Sarah S.

​Both my children have attended Ladybird since they were 12 months old and have both loved their time. The nursery has a very friendly homely feel and the staff treat the kids like their own.

Meet Our Manager


Hi, my name is Paulina and I have been a part of the Ladybird family since 2007. Since then, I have worked my way up from Nursery Practitioner to my current position as Nursery Manager. Over the years, I have gained a lot of experience in Early Years Education which has helped me to develop more confidence in my practice. You will often see me in the classrooms doing yoga and messy play, or taking the children for walks and visiting the local community. Working with children comes naturally to me and knowing that my hard work will play a key role in shaping the future generation makes me feel incredibly happy.
