Welcome to our nursery...

Ashton House is a 200 year old grade 2 listed manor house set in the beautiful grounds of Ashton Park. We have several large gardens for the children to play and explore, all equipped to provide exciting learning opportunities.

Our long serving experienced team of staff hold varying childcare qualifications and aim to provide the very best learning opportunities for each child. 

Our baby and toddler rooms are caring, nurturing environments supporting each child’s growing needs. A day at Ashton House includes singing, music, creative art, sensory play, playing outside and time for rest. Treasure basket exploration is specifically designed to stimulate and develop young babies senses.

Our pre-school rooms encourage each child to develop their ability to look after themselves and the environment they are in. We offer extensive activities providing children the opportunity to explore their imaginations through play. Our activities help develop concentration and co-ordination with each child gaining the confidence and independence for future progress.

We believe working in partnership with parents is key to the development of each child and encourage our parents to be very much involved with the nursery. Ashton House has a parent partnership group which meets regularly throughout the year to receive feedback.

Our chefs, prepare nutritious meals using locally sourced produce. Our menu can be adapted to suit any specific dietary requirements for your child. Ashton House holds the Food for Life’ silver award along with a 5 star hygiene rating.

If you would like to find out more about other extensive learning opportunities we can offer your child please feel free to call us or drop in to nursery anytime
