Stimulating and Nurturing
We are open 51 weeks of the year, offer preschool education and childcare for children aged 3 months- 5 years. We are open from 7.30 am - 6pm, Monday- Friday, and closed on all statutory and bank holidays.
We are committed to providing a warm, caring and safe environment where your child can learn and develop to their full potential. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, and we incorporate certain aspects of the Montessori method in our teaching as well.
The Appletree nursery is a stimulating and nurturing environment, which helps the children develop into confident and independent learners.
As well as Literacy and Numeracy, we have a range of other educational and stimulating activities that the children enjoy both on or off site. The activities are designed to stimulate the children’s imagination and further their creative and physical abilities.
