December's Hospital Hero is Ladybird Nursery manager, Lynda Bartholomew

Lynda joined the nursery team in April 2014 and the team has gone from strength to strength ever since.

At the time Lynda joined the team Ofsted had deemed the nursery an inadequate setting. Through her passion, hard work and commitment Lynda has implemented many positive changes which have enhanced the nursery and the care it provides in a very short space of time.

In July 2014 the nursery passed its Ofsted monitoring visit with very good feedback, and this led to the nursery being rated as 'good' at their full inspection in October.

Lynda invests a great deal of her time with the team to improve and develop the care and education provided by all of the nursery practitioners at Ladybird. She has already started working with the team in preparation for the next Ofsted inspection to continually improve and develop the nursery and care it provides.

Child and staff benefits business manager, Lisa Green, said: "Lynda is a credit to both the nursery and the trust and I cannot think of anyone who would deserve this award more. She is a pleasure to manage and I look forward to seeing the positive future developments she is going to put in place."
