Acorns (0-2 years)

Your baby will begin their journey in Acorns, our baby area, learning and developing in our specially designed room for children aged 0-2 years.

At Ash Tree, we understand that every child is unique. Our expert team is fully qualified to provide parents and their children with the flexibility and attention needed to ensure a smooth transition from home to nursery care.

Each child is paired with a Key Worker and a Buddy who will cater to their individual needs and preferences. These caregivers will provide you with regular updates about your child’s new and exciting experiences at Ash Tree Day Nursery.

In the Baby group, we emphasise playtime, utilising a range of natural materials, wooden play equipment, and sensory stimulating toys, furnishings, and textures. These resources are designed to foster the development of both gross and fine motor skills.

Our expert team fosters an environment where babies can thrive through singing, dancing, and verbal communication. We ensure they have the space and encouragement to enjoy tummy time, crawl, and receive assistance with standing and walking.

Our on-site cook prepares freshly made hot and cold meals, ensuring that babies receive all the necessary nutrition and hydration for their day at Ash Tree Day Nursery.

As your child approaches their second birthday, our team, in collaboration with senior staff and parents/carers, will assess their readiness – both physically and emotionally – to transition to the 2-3 room.

During this period, children will participate in visits and extended stays to ease into the 2-3 environment. Once the transition is complete, parents/carers will meet the new key worker and team members.

From September, additional childcare funding will be available for working families.

For those aged 9 – 23 months, there will be 15 hours of funded child care each week with this rising to 30 hours from September 2025.
