Why choose the Fledglings?

Since The Fledglings opened in 2003 it has become an extremely popular nursery for both parents in the local community as well as the staff and students at Myerscough College. Our nursery ensures the high quality of learning, play and care opportunities that every parent values.

The nursery is managed by Ashbridge Independent School and Nursery Ltd, an organisation with an unparalleled reputation for its expertise and experience in childcare. For complete peace of mind, all practitioners have excellent levels of qualification and training and are supported by an expert and experienced senior team.

The Fledglings is a member of the National Day Nurseries Association and is regularly inspected by OFSTED. We hold the highest levels of Quality Assurance awards and take pride in the quality of relationships, care and education we provide for children in their earliest years.

Early Years Excellence

The Early Years at an Ashbridge Nursery secures excellent foundations for learning and future success.

Our dedicated baby area is designed to create a relaxed and secure environment where experienced staff nurture and care for children’s every need. From the age of three months to four years, children benefit from shared social experiences, high quality teaching and interaction with key people which supports all aspects of a young child’s development.

Our wonderful outdoor environment here at the Fledglings is used to the full and our extensive opening hours and flexible services meet the needs of today’s families.

“The day is planned out to be exciting and stimulating and practitioners work hard to ensure that children are motivated and their exploratory impulses are kindled.”

“Practitioners have high expectations of the children in their key groups and ensure that planned activities suit their interests and accelerate children’s knowledge and understanding.”

“Children’s behaviour is good and it is clear there is an ethos of mutual respect – children are independent, happy and constantly encouraged and praised.”
