Your child is embarking on the first stage of their journey at Ash Grange and we will work in partnership with you to make it a happy and exciting one, meeting your child’s personal and developmental needs. Families are very important to us and we welcome all members of your family to our events and activities. We value and respect the crucial role you play in your child’s learning. In partnership with you we create an induction programme to enable your child to settle in well and be happy to stay and learn.
Once you have applied for a Nursery place we will invite you to a Stay & Play session. During the visit you will meet with our Early Years Leader.

During the settling in period we will encourage your child to play and explore their surroundings, meeting the other children and interact with the team. These sessions allow your child to become familiar with our setting and routines. This opportunity will also allow our Early Years Practitioner time to chat with you and your child so that key information can be shared.
