About Us

Welcome to Apple Trees Childcare!

Apple Trees Childcare in Flamstead is unique to other childcare settings. We have a large converted house giving a fully functional layout with a homely feel.  We believe that our children ALWAYS come first. Which is why we have a higher staff ratio than is recommended, giving the children extra attention and care.

Where Are We?

Apple Trees Childcare is situated in Flamstead, just a short distance from Markyate, Caddington, Slipend, Kensworth and Redbourn. We are just off of junction 9 of the M1 and close to Harpenden with good rail links into London.

A Complete Service

Your child can be with us from birth until 12 years, taking advantage first of our Caterpillar (baby) room followed by our Butterfly (toddler) room and then government funding in our Ladybird (pre-school) room. Once your child starts school we offer school drop offs and pick-ups and then an afterschool club. This gives your child routine, structure, great learning, healthy home cooked meals and the benefit of building a relationship with their regular carers. What’s more all nappies, wipes, formula, meals and snacks are included!

Our Facilities

Gardens – Two of our best facilities are our gardens. Our pre-school and after school club garden boasts multiple climbing frames, sand and water play, multiple play houses, a variety of ride-ons and scooters, a construction area and a mud kitchen.

Our Vegetable Corner – This is available to all rooms within the setting. The children enjoy growing a variety of fruits and vegetables every year and also enjoy eating them from our healthy home cooked menu! Having the vegetable corner on site means that the children can partake in the gardening activities daily.

Our Out Door Class Room – This new addition to the setting has proved invaluable. It has given us extra space allowing us to purchase even more learning resources as well as providing an outdoor area that can be used all year round.

Sensory Room – We have our very own sensory room within the setting, perfect for our younger children to explore. It also provides huge benefits for children with special educational needs. Our sensory room has been a huge asset in supporting growth and development.

Soft Play Room – Our soft play area is a firm favourite among the children. Its a fantastic resource to provide age appropriate physical challenges in complete safety. Its also lots of fun.

Our Safety Policy – At Apple Trees Child Care your child’s safety is our main concern, which is why we have invested heavily in a gated drive, speed control and CCTV. All staff hold a full CRB disclosure and have a level 2 or 3 in childcare. You can rest assured that your child is safe within our care.
