The staff at Ashridge are a passionate team of well qualified and experienced practitioners. Between them, they have well  over 100 years experience in Childrens care and Learning & Development.

Ashridge Nursery is committed to updating of the knowledge and skills of their Staff through ongoing training. As a minimum our practitioners are qualified to NVQ level 3, with many holding Early Years Professional Status, and/or Degrees in relevant areas.

We have a ratio of adults to children of 1:6, which is above the Ofsted requirement for this age group.

Feedback from our last Ofsted inspection confirmed that the staff at Ashridge are experienced, well qualified and enthusiastic. They care about the children, and strive to help all children reach their full potential.
