Information for Parents
We love to keep in touch with our parents and carers and maintain a regular dialogue. Please feel welcome to send us comments and suggestions or simply use this page as somewhere to find all the information you need all in one place.
We also offer a range of regular activities for our parents to meet other parents and engage more socially with our staff. These include parent / carer Stay and Play sessions, Mums’ and Dads’ social nights, a children’s Christmas party with a visit from Father Christmas, and a summer party for children and parents.
We also seize every opportunity to celebrate fun, charity or cultural events with the children, for example Red Nose Day, Children in Need, Chinese New Year etc.
We are delighted to offer a range of home-cooked, locally-sourced menus. Our menus work on a six weekly rotation. We provide substantial snacks as well as a home-cooked meal during the day. We value the social interactions that happen when children and practitioners engage in conversations around the table. We always respect dietary requirements, taking into account cultural beliefs and allergies. Our menus are designed in consultation with the guidelines set by Bristol City Council nutrition experts.

The staff at Ashgrove Park have looked after my children for the past six years. They have provided a fantastic caring and nurturing environment that has met both my children's needs and interests. Both my children have always looked forward to 'nursery days' and will miss you all very much.
