Moving on to School

Attending nursery is just the start of your child’s educational journey.  We aim to give children the best start in life through our caring and nurturing environment. By spending learning in our well-structured and engaging pre-school, led by qualified teachers, by the end of pre-school our children are confident and ready for the next step in their education at primary school.

Ashbridge School provides continuity of care and education for your child; retaining the focus on learning outdoors, providing a nurturing environment, ensuring children are challenged and achieve and developing the whole child as they move through primary school. Children at our nurseries receive priority for places at Ashbridge School and we provide a smooth transition for both you and your child. We hold Moving Up events as well as meetings for parents so when they time comes for children to move into Ashbridge Reception the transition is seamless.

Children moving on to other primary schools are equally as well prepared, as they too are used to playing and learning with other children and have had the benefit of a focussed pre-school education led by qualified teachers.  We work with all local primary schools during the summer term to facilitate teachers coming to meet children at nursery, provide information that is requested and providing advice and guidance to parents.

Whatever path your child takes after Ashbridge Nursery, you can be sure they are as prepared as they possibly can be for the next stage of their educational journey.

@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
