Welcome to The Learning Tree Nursery
The Learning Tree Nursery is a small, independent nursery opened in 1994 to provide high quality nursery sessions, with reasonable fees, welcoming to all.
Our priority is a happy, caring, and supportive family atmosphere with plenty of individual attention and encouragement. We have a good staff/child ratio in a stimulating environment to help each child achieve their full potential in readiness for School.
The Nursery is situated in a bright and spacious hall, with plenty of natural light. We have a secure outdoor play area with a covered section, a wildlife mural and an all-weather safety surface.
The Learning Tree is part of the government scheme offering 15 free hours per week to qualifying children aged 2-5 years, with morning, afternoon, and full time sessions between 9.00 am – 3.30 pm during term time (see Admission Details page).
Our latest Ofsted Report (November 2014) states:
“Staff are warm and caring with the children, which results in a joyful and purposeful atmosphere, and children learn to behave well.
Staff plan interesting activities based on children’s interests, this means children are happy to learn and make good progress in their learning.
Staff provide a good range of activities promoting children’s independent thinking, self-help and literacy skills. As a result, children attain the necessary skills for their future learning.”
“The Learning Tree” By Ian Page
“Once upon a moment, not so long ago, a little seed fell on to some soft ground. It felt so good that he snuggled underneath an old brown leaf and fell fast asleep. In the morning, the sun climbed out from behind a hill, and said,
“Little seed, it’s time to grow,
I’ll teach you all there is to know,
Listen well and you will be,
The one they call the Learning Tree.”
