At The Orange Tree Day Nurseries you will experience a warm and homely environment where children have fun and are nurtured, you will observe our children playing and learning whilst being supported by passionate and engaged staff.
Your key person is an essential part of our nursery experience. Both you and your child will develop a relationship with your key person helping to promote positive communication. Your child's key person will track their development and ensure that they are provided with planned activities that will challenge and excite them to achieve their next steps and make the most of their potential. All our children are encouraged to share, be kind and play with each other. This helps to develop the communication skills necessary for your child to thrive in school and at home.
Meal times are a special time where positive social skills are encouraged and older children have opportunity to self manage. Most of all we have fun, if children feel happy, secure and challenged they will naturally develop into confident well rounded young people.
Our Day Nurseries are blessed with amazing outdoor spaces which provide fantastic learning and challenging opportunities to our children. Children enjoy being outdoors in all weather, they enjoy building snowmen in the Winter, sweeping and collecting leaves in the Autumn and picnics and sports days in the Spring and Summer.
Children learn about their environment, bird watching, nature trails, and growing their own vegetables. The new addition of our chickens and rabbits are a great interest and learning device for the children and they love looking after them, stroking them, feeding them and most of all collecting and counting the eggs everyday!
Equipment provides physical challenge and our 1st Ball Sport sessions promote their gross motor skills and co-ordination.
