  • 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.

    Simple and straight-forward

    As a guide, the average cost of sending a child under 2 to an Old Station Nursery is £150 per week (part-time) and £300 per week (full-time).

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself. Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Fee Calculator


    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off 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 voucher.

    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.


Within a safe and loving atmosphere, our experienced team plan to suit each child’s developmental stages

"I have worked in childcare for 23 years and find it the most rewarding job that one could ever have. Watching children grow and develop and knowing that I have impacted on their lives is so worthwhile and rewarding."
