Welcome to The Orange Tree Nursery @ Burton
Come with us and see what it is like in our Nursery. Explore the different rooms and look at what we get up to and all the fun we have!
At The Orange Tree Day Nursery you will receive a warm welcome, with our caring staff making you feel at home. Whilst at our day nursery your child will be part of a small family group looked after by an experienced and familiar key person.
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.
Our Baby Suite
Our beautiful Baby Suite is a place of peace and tranquillity where your baby will be treasured and nurtured by passionate highly skilled practitioners. Babies are constantly stimulated with music and singing, sensory experiences and heuristic play.
Babies have their own protected outdoor space where they can play in the fresh air.
Our cook provides healthy nutritious meals which are planned carefully to specifically meet our babies’ dietary needs.
Our Wise Owls Unit for 3-5 Year Olds
Our Pre-School is led by a qualified practitioner and activities are planned to incorporate play-led learning whilst continuing to focus on your child's emotional needs. We strive to encourage your child to develop confidence, independence and to be sociable and happy. They will develop the skills that will enable them to ask questions, find the answers and have the ability to manage future challenges. Our low 1:8 staff ratios will ensure your child has one to one adult attention should they require support. By capturing your child's interest and enthusiasm, together we will see them flourish.
Our IT provision encourages children to develop skills and a sound understanding of how to use technology and gadgets.
Mealtimes are a special time where positive social skills are encouraged, and older children have the 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 Nursery is blessed with wonderful outdoor space which provides fantastic learning and challenging opportunities for 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 through a range of activities and benefit from having the freedom to explore and use their senses in the natural world.
The outdoor equipment provides physical challenge and the opportunity for the children to develop their gross motor skills, co-ordination and confidence.
Out of School & Holiday Club
We all know that childcare doesn't stop when your child goes to school and it can be necessary to arrange care for them before and/or after school and also in the holidays when you still have to work.
Here, children can relax with friends and take part in some fun activities. Occasionally we also arrange trips to places of interest. Children are able to access our amazing outdoor space at all times.
We offer breakfast club from 7:30am and then take the children safely to school. After school we will collect your child and provide their tea. Our holiday club is available for various sessions including mornings, afternoons, full days, short days or full weeks to suit your requirements.
During the very difficult times of the Covid-19 pandemic we have been setting small tasks to keep our children learning and having fun at home.
"Just wanted to say thank-you for allowing us to come visit the nursery. What a fantastic transformation, it is looking outstanding and so much brighter. We especially love the outdoor space. Olivia loved it before but with all the changes she will love it even more. It was lovely to also meet some of the other staff members too and we have nothing but great things to say about the team at The Orange Tree. Looking forward to seeing Olivia progress even further with you." (Amy Bostock, Mother of Child).
