Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery

Why Children Love Us

A place to grow

Port Solent children's day nursery is a vibrant, refurbished nursery. We've received 3 consecutive Ofsted 'Outstanding' ratings and have an established team who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to their roles.

The day nursery in Port Solent is situated on the marina, outside of school catchment areas, but the schools of choice for many of our parents include Portchester, Cosham and Drayton.

Each of our rooms are well resourced, with high-quality equipment and furniture handcrafted by Community Playthings. All our facilities are set at a level that allows the children to access them independently.

The pre-school room features a range of state-of-the-art ICT equipment, from touchscreen computers to an interactive smart board.

Outdoors, we have a must-see amazing adventure garden with a growing and planting area, music area, large sand pit, water play and giant chalkboards for mark making.

The older children regularly use the David Lloyd play area and dance studios, and the pre-school children are able to attend weekly swimming lessons. Delicious healthy meals are freshly cooked onsite by our cook, who is based within the David Lloyd kitchens.

Special diets are catered for, and our cook liaises closely with each child's key person in order to meet their dietary needs.

We will be delighted to welcome you to Port Solent pre-school & day nursery. Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

Nutrition

Our excellent nutritionally balanced menu is changed regularly to encourage a varied diet and is approved by the Childrens Food Trust. Here is an example of a typical menu.

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!
