Parent Reviews


​Our son attended between the ages of one and three. I cannot recommend it highly enough. He loved his time there and his physical, mental and emotional development whilst there was amazing.

​Linsey C.

​My 20 month-year-old son loved attending Ladybird Nursery - Penge over the last year. We have just moved out of the area so are very sad to leave. He was very happy there and loved his key workers and his friends.

​Sophie R.

​We have been extremely happy with the excellent level of care and attention given to our daughter at nursery. Staff are always friendly, approachable and very caring towards children. As a result, our daughter is thriving.

Meet Our Manager


I have worked in childcare for the past 10 years, with almost 7 of those at Ladybird, starting as a Room Assistant and working my way up to the Nursery Manager. What I enjoy the most about working with children is watching them grow and develop. When you see a child who is nurtured and allowed to grow and develop at their own pace with their interests supported, their abilities can be endless. Working at Ladybird, we are encouraged and supported to ensure that we have the training and resources to support all the children to reach their full potential.
