The team

Jo Short:
As the proprietor of Ladybird Lane, and a mother myself, I take the responsibility of looking after young children very seriously indeed.  I strive to provide staff of the highest calibre and believe that I usually succeed in this aim.  We work very hard to provide an environment that is fun, stimulating, flexible, organised and calm.

Every member of staff attends regular on-going training to aid their professional development.  This is a requisite of their employment and is listed in their job description.  All staff recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents; we value, and actively seek, the contributions parents make towards the care and education of their child.


“Staff receive good support in their roles by access to ongoing training, staff meetings, regular appraisals and feedback from the proprietor and advisors within the local authority.” Ofsted report 2009

“The manager demonstrates a strong commitment to promoting high-quality provision. Staff are highly qualified and regularly attend training to keep their knowledge up to date.” Ofsted report 2015
