The baby room at Bush Hill Park Day Nursery & Pre-School
Our bright bubbly baby room offers a warm feeling as soon as you walk in the door. As baby room caters for only 9 children per day the room offers a cosy feel and a nurturing place for the children to grow and develop.
Our beautiful Baby room is designed to support all key areas of development for our children aged 3 months to two years. The babies enjoy the sensory play, song times and music and movement sessions.
Each child forms strong bonds with their key person, so they feel safe and secure. Baby room has two cosy cots and a coracle sleep pod to give our babies an inviting area to sleep. We have a small milk kitchen within the playroom for easy access and a shared nappy changing area leads off the main playroom.
Our babies have access to a beautiful; recently refurbished garden within the grounds, and go out regularly on walks in the local area to Bury Lodge Park and Bush Hill Park Library.
The nursery room at Bush Hill Park Day Nursery & Pre-School
Our light airy nursery room provides a beautiful setting for our 2-3 year old children to learn and play.
The room is overseen by room leader, Jacki Booth. As the nursery room caters for 18 children, friendships are formed easily and independence is encouraged. The room is well organised with a broad range of resources easily accessible, so the children thrive from this whilst knowing there is still someone close by for support should they need it.
Our nursery room gives children the chance to become independent, through developmental activities like self-serving at food times and potty training. There are creative, physical, construction and cosy areas and there are lots of opportunities for children to develop their relationships with other children, using puppets, books and play materials.
Children access the garden daily, even in the rain or snow we can go out in our bodysuits and explore.
The preschool room at Bush Hill Park Day Nursery & Pre-School
Our well-attended pre-school environment has so much for the children to explore and is over seen by room leader, Kirsty Thurlow. With a capacity of 25 children per day, the preschool children are set on their 'readiness for school' journey, incorporating letters, sounds, maths and developing social skills. We are extremely lucky to have a qualified teacher supporting this transition.
Parents are welcome to feed in suggestions regarding their children's learning and are encouraged to take part in regular events. The room is designed to enhance all aspects of learning and development and has focused areas for our 3 - 5-year-old children.
Children access the garden daily and go on trips twice a year. Pre-School have previously visited Paradise Wildlife Park and the Milfield Theatre to see Cinderella. The room includes a range of learning experiences to capture their imaginations and promote independence. We have a fantastic touch screen computer that allows the children to access scientific, mathematical and literacy games. The SMARTboard supports the children's learning and allows them to explore their interests. The children thoroughly enjoy our extracurricular activity 'Super Sport' which is held on Fridays, carrying out a range of sporty lessons from gymnastics to rugby.

Our Nursery Cook
"My name is Emma Ellis. I have been with Asquith since 2006 nearly 10 years ago. I started as a supply cook and settled at Hatch-End Nursery at the end of 2006. I restructured the whole kitchen and put into place strategies to enable it to run to its full capacity. I then transferred to Bush Hill Park Nursery in 2008 and I have been here since.
I have experience of working in the Catering Industry my whole adult life. This covers running my own restaurant back home, then into nursing homes, primary and secondary schools and finally settling into nurseries in the UK. I have a passion for good tasting, nutritious food and have a genuine desire to serve the children within the nursery. I love to spend time talking with parents talking about food and giving tips on how to get fruit and vegetables into meals. I am a practical, hands-on person and I have a genuine desire to continue to serve the nursery. In my spare time I enjoy baking and attending church. "
