During a consultation instigated by the ACP Women Together project, one of the barriers highlighted by women was the lack of on-site childcare.

To address this the representatives of Women Together steering committee submitted a proposal to the trustees of Ashiana Community Project.

This proposal was agreed and a on-site crèche facility was set up. As the demand for the Women Together project increased the corresponding demand for child care also increased which led to the establishment of an Ofsted Registered, Day Care nursery provision in 2006.

Our Vision

At ACP Early Years, we believe that every child should enjoy their childhood from the security of a nurturing environment and be effectively safeguarded.

It is our aim to ensure that every child in our care receives quality opportunities & early interventions to reduce the negative effects of deprivation whilst celebrating our cultural diversity. We believe that every child is unique & has the capacity to achieve their full potential through enabling environments, positive relationships & effective parent partnerships. We aim to nurture every child’s holistic development through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We encourage parent partnerships through mutual respect of opinions, values, confidentiality & beliefs whilst enabling parents & carers to voice their opinion in shaping our services. We also ensure that communication regarding your child is effectively maintained via the key –worker system.” (Early Years Coordinator)
