Jane - Nursery Manager
I have worked for Ladybird Children’s Nursery since 2010. I started as a part time Early Years Educator, working my way up to a deputy role and then a managers role in two of our nurseries. Now my role takes me away from the floor, as area manager it is my responsibility to ensure each manager and their setting are creating the same standard of care an providing the best learning opportunities possible for all the children who attend Ladybird Children’s Nursery. Now and again I get to go back to my roots and be floor based which is great!
Lisa - Nursery Cook/Housekeeper
I have worked for Ladybird Children’s Nursery for over 10 years. I have been a chef for over 30 years. Seeing the children enjoy my delicious and nutritious home cooked meals fills me with joy.
Jasmine - Early Years
I have a level 3 early educators qualifications and have lots of experience in working in early years settings.
I love working in childcare because no day is the same, you can’t write what the children will do or say which I love. Also watching the children learn and progress and knowing I’ve been apart of it is so rewarding”.
Ashley - Deputy Manager
I have worked at Ladybird Children’s Nursery for over 17 years. I really enjoy providing the children with an interactive environment that is challenging and engaging. I take pride in children reaching their goals.
Julie - Lead Early Years Educator
Ever since being at school I wanted to work in childcare. I have worked for Ladybird Children's Nursery for 15 years starting as a nursery assistant and working up to manager of one of the playgroups. I took a short break from childcare, but soon realised childcare is my passion. I love to see the progress our children make with us.
Demileigh - Early Years Apprentice
I have always enjoyed helping take care of my younger siblings and cousins and when I left school I wanted to do it full time. By doing an apprenticeship I am able to develop my knowledge on child development while getting to work in a nursery environment with the children. I love being able to help children learn new things and develop their skills.
Kirsty - Early Years Educator
I always wanted to work with young children since being at school, I have worked in childcare for nearly 13 years altogether now. To be able to watch a child develop and grow is so amazing, it’s such a rewarding and filling job.
Sam - Early Years
Working with children was always something I wanted to do. Being able to look at the progress a child makes and knowing that in small part I did that! That is a bigger reward than I could ever hope to gain. Looking after children isn’t a job to me, it’s my passion. I don’t have to come here, I get to! I get to come to work every day where I am greeted with hugs and smiles. Then I spend my day shaping the next generation of doctors, lawyers and even scientists, why would I ever want to do anything else
Lauren - Early Years Educator
I have always been passionate about working with children from a young age, I have eight years’ experience working in schools and private nurseries with babies to children in key stage two whilst studying my level two and level three childcare and progressing on further to study my Degree in Children and Young People and gaining a level five qualification. Whilst studying my degree I carried out a placement within a nursery school that progressed into my first job working in the childcare sector. I have spent the last four years raising my own family and I have continued my knowledge and development as a practitioner raising my two daughters. After gaining experience across the age ranges my main passion is working within early years supporting and encouraging babies and young children to explore their curiosities and seeing their face light up when they learn something new. I feel that there is greater rewards working with younger children as a early years educator guiding children as they learn about their world around them gaining confidence in their learning and development.
