Welcome to Ashbridge-on-Ribble Day Nursery in Walton-le-Dale; I am pleased that you are considering our nursery for your child.

Our setting here consists of our main nursery building and the UK’s first River School and offers a wide range of activities and facilities including extensive adventure play, converted boat, soft play and a sensory room, a lovely outdoor garden area and light and welcoming classrooms.

We are situated in beautiful surroundings by the River Ribble, perfect for our ethos of outdoor learning. Our children are able to engage in outdoor activities both from the main nursery building and River School, including on our own section of the riverbank and walks further afield.

Our fantastic team are dedicated and highly skilled with lots of Early Years’ experience and qualifications including Level 5 childcare and Qualified Teachers. The staff all share their experiences and skills together with all of our children.

Please come along and have a look at our fantastic facilities and meet the team and the children.

@MissSeaton: This week our book is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. This afternoon we made porridge but because it was too hot we went for a little walk. When we got back we found Goldilocks eating it! Luckily there was enough left for us to have some- phew! https://t.co/Udf7YSEK56

@AshbridgeMaxy: We experienced painting on an overhead canvas, enjoying the freedom of big, small gross and fine motor movement. Finding out different ways to reach the canvas to make flower inspired stains. #atelier #eytalking @NDNAtalk #eyfstwittertagteam #creativelearning #ArtistOnTwitter https://t.co/0Donahzcpf
