The summer term is always a very busy one. As the weather brightens and we start to make the most of our gardens and vegetable patch we are also aware that lots of our preschool Ladybirds will fly our nest off to big school. Our graduation planning is in full swing and the September register is filling fast. What’s more if you enrol before 30th June 2018 you will not have to pay £100.00 enrolment fee!!
Free 30 Hour Government Funding
With the introduction of the free 30 hours funding for children with working parents last September, we have had an interesting year finding the right way to implement it. It’s been a huge learning curve and one that has seen us have the busiest and fullest register since we opened in 2009! With our younger children increasing, and in some case doubling, their hours as the reach our Ladybird (preschool) room it means that spaces are already limited before we even look to accommodate new enrolments.
With this in mind it has never been more important to secure your preschool place early.
What Can Apple Trees Offer Your Child?
As well as a very experienced, loving and caring team of practitioners and a host of fabulous resources and learning aids we pride ourselves on our vibrant yet homely surroundings.
Having a large converted house gives the home from home feel that many parents are looking for. Its hard going back to work and entrusting you little one to the care of others…often strangers and we understand how you feel as many of our practitioners are parents themselves.
As parents we have modelled our setting on what we would want and wish for our child. So rest assured that you child will not only have fun while learning but they will also receive care, support and love from our practitioners. Safety is also a priority at Apple Trees.
What sets Apple Trees Apart From Other Settings?
We have a flexible approach to childcare and understand that each parents and child’s needs are different. As our setting is open from 7.30am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday you can stretch your government funded 15 or 30 hours across the week in a way that suits you. Weather that be 3 long days or a few mornings or afternoons we can help you fit your childcare in with your work pattern so that your child receives excellent care that is easy on the pocket!
Everything is included in your fees at Apple Trees; nappies, wipes, meals, snacks, milk and sun cream. All you need to do is drop your child off with a change of clothes and we will do the rest.
We have 4 rooms within the setting. Our Caterpillar room takes children from birth until walking, Butterfly room from walking until 2 years, Snail room from 2-3 years and Ladybird room houses our preschool for 3-5 years.
