Welcome to Ladybird Day Nursery

Ladybird Day Nursery is a private day care nursery located in the picturesque village of Fenstanton. The Nursery is conveniently located close to both the A14 for access to Cambridge, and has easy rail links for commuters into London. Our beautiful converted Victorian house with light and airy rooms allows us to foster our ethos of providing our children with a ‘home from home’ environment.

We are open full-time from 7:30am – 6:30pm, caring for children from 3 months to 5 years.

Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn.

We adhere to our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register. This monitors the overall quality standards of the early years provision in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.


Our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can learn through play.


Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s key person.


We offer daily opportunities for learning outdoors, giving children the freedom to explore, develop and learn.


Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.

“Ladybird is like a loving family, the happiness on the children’s faces is a credit to you all…”

“From day one my little boy has enjoyed his days at Ladybird which is all down to the lovely setting and attentive staff.”

“… A place where she is cared for so well and where everyday is fun!”
