Nursery ethos

Aston University Nursery and Pre-School was founded in 1973 with a commitment to provide the highest standard of care and education.

At Aston University Nursery and Pre-School we aim to provide every child with the best possible start in life and provide them with the support they require to enable them to reach their full potential. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment to help your child feel secure and cared for. We provide a fun learning environment in which children can develop a secure foundation for future leaning. Our commitment to learning through play ensures that each child develops confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems and relate to others.
