Welcome to our family
Welcome to our family - Ashhurst Kindergarten

At Ashhurst Kindergarten we have welcomed 3 goldfish. They are happily enjoying their new home in a self-sustaining ecosystem that requires little maintenance. This setup teaches our children how plants and goldfish can benefit each other in a symbiotic relationship. The filter sucks up the water, feeds the plants, the plants filter the water and return it to the goldfish tank.

Walk in the woods

What fun was had today in the woods. A trip to the moon and back on our imaginary rocket ship. Checking out giant trees. Following the tracks, finding the mountain and the mud and then playing in it. Hosed off back at the centre, a change of clothes and then lunch, what a memorable morning.
