Government funding

At Apple Trees Child Care we are registered with the local government and are able to claim government funding on your behalf. We fully comply with EYFS and believe that children really get a head start to schooling by attending nursery/pre-school and learning through play.

Government funding states that every child is entitled to 15 hours of free childcare from the term following their 3rd birthday. If you choose Apple Trees your child will spend their 15 hours in our Ladybird room. Click here to see all the facilities that will be available to them.

Some children will also qualify for the NEW 30 hours free funding from September 2017. This funding if for children who have working parents from the term following their 3rd birthday. To find out if you qualify for this funding please follow this link. Apple Trees will be offering the 30 hours funding but spaces will be limited due to such high demand. If you would like to enquire about taking a place please do not hesitate in contacting us.

Some children also qualify for FREE 2yr old funding. Click here for more details. If your child qualifies you can claim your funding at Apple Trees Child Care and your child will spend their 15 hours in our Butterfly room before moving on to our Ladybird Room for pre-school.

We have a number of children in our setting that take advantage of this funding. These are not just children whose parents are out at work. Even if you do not work it is of huge benefit to your child to take advantage of the FREE government funding. It allows the children to make friends, become independent and develop their skills. It also allows you some free time to get those odd jobs done!

Why choose Apple Trees over other pre-schools?

We offer the same learning and preparation for school as most pre-schools, however we can also offer you flexible hours. Our setting is open from 7.30am – 6.00pm Monday – Friday so you can choose the 15 hours that benefit you and your child.

What’s more we offer meals, snacks and nappies all included, unlike other pre-schools who will provide a rota system for supplying snack and do not offer lunches. Add in our excellent facilities and resources and you have the complete package.

To find out more about what your child may be entitled to, please give contact us on 01582 840586 or email We would love to show you around our setting and look forward to welcoming you and your little ones very soon.
