Who We Are

Why Choose Ladybird Pre School Nursery?

Ladybird Pre School Nursery offers a warm and nurturing environment.  It is a space where your child can explore and investigate, encouraging them to pilot their own learning.  Our Two Year old room provides a safe space for the children to build a secure relationship with their keyworker and begin to play and explore. Our Pre School room is where the children can build resilience and independence.  It provides opportunities for rich learning experiences supporting your children to receive the best possible start to their education.

Ladybird Pre School Nursery – the background

It began as a playgroup in the early 1980’s. In 1991, after a massive fund raising effort, it moved to its current premises on the Cromer Road.

The Nursery has thus been an integral part of the Sheringham Community for over 40 years. It has cared for well over 1000 children and created links with more than 500 local families.  Some ‘early birds’ who attended in the 1980’s now send their own children to the nursery.

The Nursery is registered with and inspected by Ofsted.  It is managed by a group of Trustees and Management Committee, who work closely with the Nursery Manager and Staff Team.
