Bilingual Day Nursery Ashby Team

We are honoured to have an incredible team of Highly Qualified Nursery Practitioners and Teachers.

As a small family-run business, it is paramount for us that every child feels part of our nursery family and that we know each and every child and parent on a personal level. 

We use the 1 person 1 language approach - meaning it does not matter if parents do not speak any Spanish at home. However, this will obviously accelerate children's fluency in Spanish.
