Ashbourne Day Nursery Facilities
The Ashbourne Day Nurseries Group has extensively refurbished the nursery at Oxley Park to facilitate its ‘care, nurture, teach’ ethos and so it is a spacious, light and airy place to play, learn and develop.
Children’s bike area.
A themed area, which regularly changes, designed so that the children get plenty of exercise as they play.
Flowerbeds where children can grow their own flowers and learn about nature.
Summer houses which are themed according to what the children are learning.
Sand play area.
Water play area.
Indoor play and learning facilities are arranged according to age group.
In our Butterflies and Grasshopper rooms there are age-specific children’s toilet and potty training facilities:
Our Bumblebee room caters for babies from 6 weeks old to when they are mobile. There is no age specific time for them to move up to the next room, this is decided by our team of practitioners who work with the parents to decide. Our bumblebee room is lead by Leanne.
Our Ladybugs room caters for babies once they become more mobile to when they are near or just after their 2nd birthday. There is no age specific time for them to move up to the next room, this is decided by our team of practitioners who work with the parents to decide. Our ladybugs room is lead by Miriam.
Our Butterflies room caters for children from just after their 2nd birthday to around their 3rd Birthday. There is no age specific time for them to move up to the next room, this is decided by our team of practitioners who work with the parents to decide. Our butterflies room is lead by Gaby.
Our Grasshoppers room caters for children from just after their 3rd birthday up till just before they make the transistion to school. In our pre-school room we help prepare the children for the next stage in their life, school, as well as having lots of fun! Our grasshopper room is lead by Roxy.
We also have an onsite kitchen where all meals are prepared by our in house cook Mark.
Nursery parking facilities
Ashbourne Day Nursery has its own designated parking area next to a car park for the general public, so there’s always plenty of room.
There is wheelchair access throughout the nursery, including lifts and toilets on both floors. The building is designed to accommodate most disabilities.
Although our Nursery is based in a reputable location, we don’t leave anything to chance when it comes to the children’s security. We have a high-tech biometric security system on all external doors. Our management team check anyone that comes into our nursery by recognising the parent on our video screens. We also have a strict policy that no parent can let in another individual behind them. We have recently installed CCTV within all of our nursery rooms, this is to protect the children and also our practitioners.
