Tree Tots Pre-School

Please take a look around and enjoy our virtual Tree Tots Tour

We provide high-quality nursery care for two to three year olds in our well-equipped, purpose built space within Lime Tree Primary Academy. 

Our team of highly qualified staff are passionate about childcare and supporting children’s development in their early years.

The ‘Tree Tots’ provision is part of the school Early Years Foundation Stage and the staff work closely with the established Foundation Stage team, including 4 qualified Early Years teachers, sharing their skill sets. This provision is available during term time, operating between the hours of 8.30am and 3.30pm.

Tree Tots offer a breakfast club which is available from 8.00-8.30am and is chargeable (see prices below). It is based within the Tree Tots room.

Providing the best educational start for your child, our nursery benefits from:

  • being on a primary school site
  • a stimulating outdoor area
  • Forest School staff and activities
  • a team of highly qualified staff
  • purposeful learning environment
  • intakes throughout the year

We believe that children deserve high-quality care and learning experiences to enable them to learn effectively. We provide a purposeful, fun, safe and secure environment where the children enjoy activities based around their interests and developmental need. The provision offers teacher-supported learning through play, based around the Early Years Learning Framework. We believe that children make the greatest progress when they are fully engaged, have high self-esteem and feel confident within their surroundings.

You can find out more about Tree Tots in our Induction and Welcome Pack.  

We offer start dates throughout the year and try to accommodate children as early as possible.
