Bumble Bees...

Ashton House Nursery provides inspirational childcare for children from 12 to 18 months. We call this dedicated age group Bumble Bees.

Our Bumble Bee room provides a comforting, homely and stimulating environment for your child. The room is open plan, to allow your child the freedom to explore independently and the space provided supports their increased mobility at this age. As with all of our rooms, an experienced staff team dedicated to this age group work from 8am–6pm, providing continuity for you and your child. All staff are trained in Makaton sign language, to encourage communication and language skills.

The room has a carpeted area for play, and cosy spaces are available if the children wish to rest or have quiet time. Table top activities are accessible at child height, with a range of other activities taking place at floor level to support those children still crawling.

Shelves are stocked with natural wicker baskets filled with a variety of treasures, such as shells, sensory balls and pots and pans. Every basket has been carefully considered to support this stage of development. The shelving is also at child height to promote independence during exploration.

Double doors in Bumble Bees open out onto a decked area, providing all children with free-flow from inside to outside. Push along and ride on toys are used on Bumble Bees’ courtyard area, to support the children’s physical development. We have triple buggies available for walks around the nursery grounds, whilst the more confident walkers can follow. Our unique outdoor space provides our Bumble Bees with many opportunities for sensory exploration, from the long wavy grass in the Summer meadow to the rustle and crunch of Autumn leaves in our woodland. To allow for maximum access to the outdoors, the nursery provides a water and wind resistant all-in-one suit for your child, which goes over a winter coat in colder or wet weather.

We have a dedicated milk kitchen and all Pampers branded nappies are provided, giving you the convenience of a high quality product.
