Welcome to Ladybird Day Nursery, Fenstanton 

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 – 6pm (6.30pm upon request at no extra charge), 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.

Taking care of our staff’s wellbeing is of prime importance to us and we are proud to have been voted the 14th best place to work in the whole of the UK.

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’.

We are pleased to report that the majority of our children have now returned to Nursery following the relaxation of social distancing measures by Government.  We recognise that this is a continues to be a worrying and confusing time for parents of young children and that some of the information in the media may add to your concerns.

The Nursery is satisfied, having completed our own comprehensive risk assessment, that it is as safe as possible for our children to return and for our Nursery to remain open, but we are alert to the ongoing risks.

We have reached this conclusion after careful examination of the data at a local level, a detailed reopening plan based on advice from Public Health England (PHE) and an evaluation of the risk to our staff, based on their health and household risk factors.

The UK Chief Medical Officers have issued a statement on education and childcare reopening which states that there is a very low rate of severe disease in children from coronavirus (COVID-19).

However, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with additional information on the more localised picture.

LEARNING

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

SETTLING IN

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

OUTDOORS

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

FOOD

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!”

Above and Beyond Educational Experiences

We offer a range of unique educational experiences which enable children to become successful, lifelong learners including:

  • Wake up and shake up – an activity to energise the brain using cross-lateral movements
  • A range of bespoke activities which promote your child’s well-being and confidence.
  • Garden Champions (RHS School Awards Levels 1, 2 & 3) – our gardening activity which is supported by the Royal Horticultural Society’s School Gardening Awards training programme.

Ladybird Day Nursery is situated in a beautiful converted Victorian house in the centre of the picturesque village of Fenstanton in Cambridgeshire.
