Ashgrove Park Nursery on Ashgrove Road and Clyde House Nursery on Nevil Road (both BS7) have been open for 30 years. Owned by the same family for more than 20 years, the nursery settings each offer all-year round places for up to 31 children.
Parents like the nursery settings for the strength of the long-serving staff team and their special relationships with the children. Parents describe the staff as friendly, warm, attentive and enthusiastic. Parents also like the homely, family atmosphere and the small size of the nurseries, that are a real part of the local community.
Rated Outstanding at the last inspection in 2019, Ofsted said of Ashgrove: ‘Staff develop strong relationships with parents and children’, ‘staff have extremely high expectations for all groups of children so they continue to make rapid progress from their starting points’, ‘staff are confident in identifying what children need to learn next and how to support them in doing this,’ and, ’staff provide children with plenty of rich learning experiences.’
A waiting list is currently in operation for a place at either nursery.
