The Ladybird Pre-school opened in 1994 as a community project between three village playgroups and Cottenham Parish Council. The Parish Council provided a new building and the three playgroups amalgamated to form the Ladybird Pre-school. We are an established member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance and have a well-earned reputation for offering high quality childcare. Our emphasis is on friendly interactive education tailored to each individual child’s needs, which in 2009 was recognised by the Nursery World Pre-school of the Year Competition, a national award in which we were the Highly Commended runners up. In September we were one of six settings to be shortlisted under the category ‘Enabling Enviroments’.
