Principal & Director

Bernadette and Julie worked together as Deputy Head and Foundation Stage Co-ordinator at a local Hertfordshire school. During maternity leave in 2002 they set up Ladybirds Nursery from scratch in the heart of the then newly established Highfield Park. They have eight children between them, including twins (six boys and two girls). Bernadette and Julie teach in the Pre-School room and are passionate about providing young children with a lifelong love of learning. As qualified, experienced early years teachers they have a clear vision for developing the potential of all children in their care.
