Meena Dalal

Assistant Manager

Meena joined Ladybird Lane in 2015 as an Early Years Apprentice and completed her Level 3 Diploma for the Children’s and Young People’s Workforce in 2016.  She also holds a current Paediatric First Aid Certificate and a BTEC Level 1 in Forest School. Meena is responsible for mentoring, supporting and supervising new staff and students by providing ongoing training to maintain and enhance our delivery of ‘outstanding’ practice as described by Ofsted (2018). Meena has a small key group of 3 children which allows her time to scaffold new staff and take on other responsibilities such as purchasing equipment/resources, updating our website, and working with the rest of the senior management team to update policies and ensure that all staff are kept informed of changes.  She also organises staff meetings and ensures that agendas and minutes are provided in the allocated timeframe.

Meena works alongside Kerry and Jade to ensure the smooth day to day management of the nursery and to monitor staff mental health and well-being.
