December's Hospital Hero - Lynda Bartholomew
23 January 2015
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
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."
