Who we are
Intimate, small and nurturing setting developing capable learners and communicators
Our smaller size really is our most unique feature; enabling us to work closely with children and families in order to meet their individual needs.
Apricot Nursery and Pre-school are set across two sites, ensuring that we are able to give children a truly unique and special nursery experience. Children start their journey here at our Apricot Nursery. We are a true home from home nursery and pride ourselves on our parent partnerships. We follow the children’s interest, ensuring no two days the same!
The nursery consists of three base rooms; each benefit from having their own safe and enclosed, age appropriate outside play area. This provides all of our children with free flow access to explore the outside play area whenever they want.
- Registered for 47 places for children aged 0-5 years
- Qualified, dedicated and enthusiastic nursery team
- Separate outdoor play areas for each room
- Ideally located close to town centre
- Operating across two sites to support school readiness

"I was so impressed with the care towards my baby and myself""The whole team has been amazing from the settling session to when my baby started. I was so impressed with the care towards my baby and myself. They understood how worried I was about leaving him. Feedback at the end of the day about what he has been doing, food, and sleeps - outstanding. I know he enjoys his days at nursery as he gets excited when coming in."
"I have a passion to provide young children with the best start in life. Myself and the team will go above and beyond to provide the children their individual needs and to make nursery a fun and safe environment for all children to have a variety of different, exciting and challenging experiences."
