  • Who we are

    Intimate, small and nurturing setting developing capable learners and communicators

    Our smaller size really is our most unique feature and benefit; enabling our nursery team to work very 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 at our Apricot Nursery and finish here at our Apricot Pre-school. We are just a short walk away from the nursery and offer the same home from home experience. Visit our Nursery page here.

    The Pre-school consists of three base rooms, each benefiting 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.

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many familiesoff choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.
