TicTots Day Nursery & Creche

Within Ashton Primary School, Ainsdale Drive, Ashton-on-Ribble, Preston PR2 1TU

TicTots is a safe and welcoming environment for children to learn and play. The nursery is situated over two areas - for children up to the age of three years, there are two childcare rooms, a spacious Toddler room and a dedicated Baby Unit which benefits from their own outside play area, a kitchen and a children’s bathroom.

For preschool age children, the preschool is based within Ashton Primary School and offers a great programme for children planning to transition to Ashton Primary school. This is a more formal learning environment where staff lead children to ensure their behaviour is well managed and they are closely supported in preparing them for transition to school.

They follow the EYFS learning programme and teaching is led by a qualified teacher. Most activities at the nursery are child led to allow children to grow and develop at their own pace, often including opportunities in the outdoor area to learn about nature and the environment.

TicTots nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and each child has a key worker who is responsible for planning the best way to help each child with their own development. The Senior Management team are all qualified to degree level and our teaching staff are all qualified to Level Three with two Level two trainees working towards their Level Three. They have two Housekeeping staff who are qualified to L2 Food Hygiene and Safety and they help to support children at mealtimes.
