2 Year Old Provision

2 Year Old Provision at St James’ Nursery


The St James’ Ashurst Two Year Old Provision is a special place full of learning, laughter and friendship, where all children are happy; feel safe and are valued.


We provide the best possible educational provision in a stimulating and creative environment. The provision fosters a love of learning inspired by high-quality teaching which develops and builds upon individual strengths and talents.


We believe that children learn the best by direct experiences and interactions between people and their environment, through established routines and inspirational activities.


We value the strong relationship with our local community, and we encourage positive partnerships between children, home and the wider community. Please feel free to visit and take a look around.
