Asipring Minds @ Ellerburn

There has been a nursery based on the current site since the 2012 where a previous nursery owner realised that there was a need for a nursery providing full day care for children of all ages in the area for local families.

Aspiring Minds took over the operation of the nursery in 2019. 

Perfectly located for families close to local schools & shopping centre and also on convenient bus routes to the town centre, Beverley Road & the Avenues.

Our Baby & Toddler Unit ( max 15 spaces over 2 rooms)

Our Baby & Toddler Rooms are designed so the young baby & growing toddler can feel first & foremost feel secure & natured.

We have 2 rooms where children from birth to 2 years can access during the day which we believe is more homely that being in 'one room' all day. The unit also has its own outdoor space.

The rooms have been created to give a homely feel with on trend colours & soft furnishings.  Toys & equipment are of high quality. The use of natural & open ended resources start right from a young age so our children are 'Learning to play a natural way'.

Staff in our nurturing rooms are all qualified to a high level & varying levels of experience but all with the ethos where the child's care & well- being is paramount.

The Preschool Area 2 1/2 -4 years ( 30 spaces)

The Preschool Room has access to out beautiful & fun outdoor area.

The calming colours of the preschool support children not to be over stimulated so they can concentrate further on the activities they are taking part in. Again high quality, open ended & authentic toys & resources support children in leaning to be curious about their special place & the world around them.

Learning comes from child led interests with adults providing 'Invitations to Learn' something new through careful observation & planning for each child's needs based on their own level of development.

With space to be imaginative, creative, curious & space to observe the world go by if needed, our Preschool really does provide the requirements needed for the 2-4 year old who is primed & ready for learning & exploring through play.

Part of the Preschool is separated off once our 'sessional' children go home in an evening to provide a space for our school aged children to chill & play with a wide range of toys of their interest.

What Ofsted say about us...

As the new company took over recently and had to re-register with Ofsted we are awaiting our initial Ofsted Inspection within 30 months.

However if you would like to visit our other settings pages, you can read about Newbridge's  latest Ofsted inspections in the meantime.
