Elstow pre-school "The Ladybirds" is a registered charity and has been delivering high quality care and education for pre-school children since 1991.
We are run by an elected parent committee which ensures that major decision making is in the hands of the parents of those who use the group. The committee are responsible for reviewing both policies and practice and for the employment and appraisal of members of staff.
Committee meetings are open to all who have children at the pre-school and we actively encourage all parental involvement.
