We take children from the age of 2 years to rising 5's at all of our pre-schools and we follow the framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage in believing that children learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place indoors and outdoors.


Before your child starts with us, you will be invited to join us at the setting for 'stay and play' sessions, where you and your child will get the opportunity to familiarise yourself with our staff, setting and our practices.  

We will also carry out home visit's for our pre-school new starters, during the visit we will bring a book, a game and a photo album of our setting, the book and the photo album will be left with you for you to share and enjoy with your child before they start.

Also at this time, we will go through our ‘All About Me’ booklet to help us with getting to know your child as well as possible. This will be a good opportunity for you to let us know your child’s likes and dislikes and also ask us any questions you may have.

What our customers are saying

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the girls and how they've all made me and R feel so welcome. R has an amazing bond with his key person and seeing as he's not like that with many people it shows me how much she tries with him. I am so happy with R going to Appletree, the ladies are amazing!
