Our Ethos

At Ashbridge, we believe in a holistic, approach to children’s early years education; offering secure foundations for learning and future success.

Our safe and enriched environments encourage a fresh and stimulating dimension to learning promoting a sense of confidence, well-being and respect for others and the natural world.

Children learn when they are actively engaged and challenged and we believe that in knowing how children learn through play and direct teaching we ensure the best possible outcomes.

We believe that children deserve the support and care of passionate teachers and practitioners. Through meaningful interactions, building secure relationships and high quality teaching we give children the opportunity to form a positive self-image, love of learning and experience an exceptional education.

By offering a service that works in partnership with and supports families we believe in promoting a culture of mutual respect and a shared vision.

The vision for children and families at Maxy Farm has been to create a vibrant environment were seamless early learning both inside and outdoors promotes investigation and creative thinking. Building on the Ashbridge ethos children develop their independence, meet challenges with confidence and learn to take risks in a secure and atmosphere.

The Ashbridge Promise

In 2021 we consulted with children, staff and parents to create the Ashbridge Promise, our vision for the coming years. Focussing on High Achievement, Curriculum Development, Global Awareness, Personal Development, The Ashbridge Family and Enabling Environments, the Ashbridge Promise sets out all our plans to ensure Ashbridge continues to offer the best to all the children in our care.

@AshbridgeMaxy: We were able to create our very own hungry caterpillars. We incorporated colour sorting, sizing & sequencing as well as storytelling into the session. #atelier @NDNAtalk #eytalking @cosydirect #earlyscience #earlymaths #EYFS #loosepartsinearlyyear https://t.co/w5179oXrZF
