What we've been up to...


We are excited to share that our nursery will shortly be filled with some new resources for our inside area as well as new garden resources. 
Many of our rooms are also being redecorated for an updated, cosy and warm, home from home feel.
We are excited for all our new resources to arrive and our decorations to be completed by mid August.

Staff training

Our excellent staff are vital to our success which is why we are committed to their continued training. We also have our early years trainer, Laura Horandi, in our nursery many days each week.

Our garden

We are happy to announce that we will soon be receiving lots of new resources for our garden.
With the weather getting better, we know our children love to play outside in the large garden area.
So, we thought we would introduce lots of new learning opportunities for them.
Here are a few of the new resources we are looking forward to!

Children's interests

As we are getting some new resources, we feel enhancing specific areas inside our nursery based on the children’s interest is a good use of our space!
For example we will be enhancing our story corner and our construction and small world area with new learning opportunities.

Manager update

We are sad to say that Diane will be leaving the nursery setting and Friday 23rd is her last day with us. We wish her the very best of luck in her future.

Nic will be returning full time to the setting and we are really excited to have her back. 

Nic is returning to support the nursery and staff team. She has worked for Ashbourne Day Nurseries for four years, and has worked as a manager in a few of our Ashbourne Day Nurseries including Leavesden at the beginning of this year.

Nic has over 20 years experience in early years and now works as part of the support team at head office.
