Day Nursery

Day Nursery

Ashby Castle Day Nursery is a uniquely designed setting catering for children 6 weeks to 3 years. Each room is age specific and ensures a high level of interaction and focus. Many of the rooms 'free flow' to the outdoor area.

The staff have expertise relevant to each age range, and the favourable ratio of staff to children ensures unique relationships are fostered.

Pre-Preparatory School

Pre-Preparatory School

Our Pre-Preparatory School caters for children in the last year before they enter full-time education. Our focus is to lay firm foundations in all areas of the curriculum ready for this extremely important transition. Subject specific rooms and well-trained professionals, many of whom are graduates, ensure the teaching and learning experiences are outstanding.

"We monitor our children effectively to ensure progress is rapid. Our tracking results clearly show children in the Pre-Preparatory School exceed developmental goals, ensuring they are prepared very well for school."

Dumbles Forest School

Dumbles Wood Forest School

Our Forest School is situated nearby in a private four-acre woodland estate. A heated woodland cabin provides a classroom, and shelter in bad weather. The dedicated staff organise a varied program of educational and fun activities promoting discovery and exploration.

The children delight in pizzas from the woodfired oven, toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate by the camp fire.
