Ashmead Nursery admissions policy



At Ashmead Nursery we cater for funded children from 2 years to 4 years old.


We offer a wide and varied curriculum based around the 7 Areas of Learning linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The three Prime Areas of learning  are Personal, Social and Emotional development, Communication and Language and Physical Development.

The four Specific Areas of learning that run alongside the Prime Areas are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


Our environment and staff interaction ensures the children develop to the best of their ability in these key areas of learning. We strive to ensure that at all times we offer a curriculum that is exciting and fun and one that will reflect the school's ethos of learning through experience.


Our Nursery environment 

We work hard to make sure our Nursery environment is an exciting and engaging place for our children to be. We make certain there are many opportunities for the development of children's language and communication skills alongside the development of their natural curiosity, inquisitiveness and imagination.

In the first half of the Autumn term we talked about ourselves and our families. We had great fun observing what was in the middle of a pumpkin and making pumpkin biscuits.
