To meet the needs of our babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Awarded by the Local Authority for our commitment to providing a healthy, nutritious and balanced menu for all our children.
Visit our family hub room for help and advice or join our training sessions on crucial Early Years topics.
This allows children to reach their full potential at their own pace and in their own time.
Mealtimes at Cherry Tree are a time for children to refuel, be sociable and learn about nutrition. Healthy snacks and delicious fresh food are cooked every day by our onsite chef using local and seasonal produce when we can. They’ll also experience new flavours and look forward to favourite dishes while older children help in our kitchen.
Every day at Cherry Tree we encourage children to be inquisitive and imaginative in our stimulating environment. In doing so, they soon develop a real love of learning and a curious mind.
Our experienced team comes with a wealth of early years learning insight. We know that every child is different with their own story to tell, so we make sure that your child learns in a way and at a pace that’s right for them.
Come and see for yourself why Cherry Tree is a wonderful beginning to your child’s early years story. We look forward to meeting you and your family.
My son adores going, not only is he so well cared for, but I feel he is loved.
The standard of care is excellent and most importantly my son has fun. He has been going since he was 7 months old and he is now nearly 3. They feel like part of our family.
The staff are very friendly and welcoming and really make the children feel at ease. The activities are fun and varied, as well as contributing to the children's development. The information and communication provided by the nursery makes me as a parent feel confident that my child is happy and safe. They also take care to make sure the children and parents are comfortable with the initial integration into nursery and then into each new room as the children move up.
The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. I was really worried about leaving my 21 month old daughter but I was soon put at ease and noticed a difference in her development after a short time of her attending.
I can highly recommend Cherry Tree.
From day one, we felt so confident that she was in safe and experienced hands. As parents, we feel that our daughter is loved and cared for by all staff and that her development and learning have been brought on so well because of this. The staff always make time for us, as parents and communication is excellent. I would highly recommend the nursery and we are just so grateful every day that we chose it for our daughter.
Babies begin to deepen their understanding of the world around them through sensory discovery and gentle play. Our team use our stimulating and spacious environment to help your child learn and develop new skills from standing to walking and talking.
After a busy morning of exploring and learning, there’s time to recharge. We know how important naps are, and make sure that when they need it, babies can sleep in our comfortable cots. Older babies rest and take naps in our wonderful dream coracles, a cosy retreat and sleep space.
As their story begins to take shape, growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover and learn. Children make friends, learn to play alongside each other and become more aware of the world around them. Our experienced educators encourage language development too, starting with simple sounds and building to sentences.
Our varied and flexible activities are adapted to suit the needs and interests of toddlers, including creative play that allows them to explore their senses and imagination. As they grow, toddlers develop social skills and peer relationships through group activities and during mealtimes.
With growing confidence and ability, we prepare our pre-school children for the learning journey ahead with a focus on letters, phonics, numbers and social skills. Pre-schoolers enjoy tailored activities for their individual needs and access to our outdoor area where they’ll find more challenging equipment to develop movement and coordination.
Children spend their final year at Cherry Tree getting ready for primary school. By this time, they have made firm friendships and leave us as independent, curious and confident learners, ready for the next chapter of their own story.
Amidst all that learning, there’s plenty of time for play with games, creative activities and outdoor fun.
If children prefer some time away from the hustle and bustle, our quiet area is equipped with reading books and spaces to complete homework.
Whether it’s breakfast to start the day or a hearty meal after school, all of our nutritious food is freshly prepared daily.
