Animals...

Children at Ashton House Nursery have every day contact with nature.

At Ashton House Nursery we recognise that the presence of animals on-site provides valuable learning experiences for the children in our care.

We have free range hens which are allowed to roam freely across the nursery grounds. We also have Pedro and Polly, two micro pigs which are housed in their own paddock on the nursery field. All ages across the nursery have daily access to our animals, increasing the child’s understanding and contact with nature. You only have to look at a child’s face, as they discover a worm whilst digging, that children have a natural curiosity and interest in animals. Through our environment supporting this interest, children are able to develop deeper meaning about the natural world.
