Here you can find out all about Cherry Trees Nurseries, our Rooms and Outdoor spaces, all about our Funding, Admissions, EYFS and our Policies.
Cherry Tree Nurseries is split into three age groups: Babies, Toddlers and Pre-school. Each group organise age appropriate activities for the children in their care. Our open plan nursery is light and airy with an in-house kitchen producing freshly cooked nutritional food every day. We cater for all dietary requirements.
Food is cooked on site so can be varied for cultural requirements, allergies and preference. We have two secure gardens that are used daily to stimulate the children and encourage them to learn through outdoor exploration.
Our garden is crammed full of adventure potential, awe and wonder. The main courtyard is an excellent space for dining al fresco and is edged with sensory planters – herbs to brush against or for our Chef to pick in the Summer, textured plants like heathers, ivy and grasses to catch the frosts and display spiders’ webs as winter approaches.
Our nursery is registered to receive Nursery Education Grant (NEG) funding for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years old. If you would like to find out more out the NEG funding, please follow this link – https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds
The hourly rate at our nursery is £6.50 per hour.
We offer an additional 10% discount when you have two or more children in the nursery (this is not valid for funded children). For more information about the sessions we offer, please call us and book a visit.
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Here at Cherry Tree Nurseries we follow the EYFS framework. This sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well. It ensures we can observe, assess and plan for the children’s next steps, take on parent/carer and any professional feedback to ensure children make good progress. The framework also ensures children are kept healthy and safe and that children have the knowledge and skills they need to start school. The Curriculum has the following areas of learning - three Prime areas and four Specific areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Self-confidence and self-awareness
