School Readiness

adult with child

Within all our pre-school’s at Ashbourne Day Nurseries we offer a school readiness programme and we deliver the Government Framework that supports the early years foundation stage. This is the same curriculum used within school settings for all children before they start Key Stage 1. 

Every one of our exciting and stimulating nurseries follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum guidelines. Our school readiness programme supports all areas of development for children especially those within our pre-school to get these learners school-ready. 

Every child within our pre-schools are assigned a key person who will monitor their individual progress and plan key learning opportunities to support their development. This enables them to build the confidence and skills they need as they move on to school.

Early years staff training

Did you know?

  • Enrolling your child within a nursery or pre-school instead of a pre-school attached to a school will not effect your child’s chances of getting a place at the school. The Local Authority will use the catchment area information for each area of the school and not the pre-school the child attended.
  • Our nurseries provide the same education and learning opportunities as those offered in pre-schools attached to schools. The Government has a Framework that supports the Early Years Foundation stage which is what all pre-schools must follow. This is the same curriculum used within school settings for all children before they start their reception year
