Living walls in our inside space bring the outside in whilst opportunities for water and sand play in our garden encourage children to play and learn together.
Our nursery school is tailored to meet the needs of our babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Children eat healthy meals together in a warm and inviting central space.
Our hybrid approach allows children to reach their full potential at their own pace and in their own time.
At The Learning Tree, children are taught the importance of their immediate environment, from where they live in their community, to the wider world and planet. They learn about interacting with others and having respect for their surroundings through recycling, greener energy, organic produce and natural play resources.
Children enjoy family-style mealtimes, eating and learning together in our large dual-aspect dining room.
Healthy snacks and delicious fresh food are cooked every day by our onsite chef using seasonal and local produce when we can. Mealtimes are an opportunity for children to experience new flavours and look forward to their favourite dishes, and older children help with the preparation of food.
We’re really proud of our brand-new purpose-built nursery school and the wonderful and imaginative learning environments we’ve created. Because our nursery is design-led we’ve created areas where children can be curious and sociable but also quiet and reflective and these choices extend into our colourful and sensory outdoor play area with its mud kitchen and wooden den.
We work collaboratively and meaningfully with parents so that their child learns and develops in a way that’s right for them and make sure that achievements and milestones are celebrated together.
Come and see our inspiring nursery and begin their early years story at The Learning Tree.
I love the fact that there is an indoor garden for them to use as she's not yet walking either. Everything is sustainable, so she's learning about the environment and helping the planet. The managers go above and beyond for the children, they are always there welcoming with a smile and a high five. The meals are served to a high standard, she's not fussy luckily but all allergens and meal preferences are catered for. The menu looks amazing! I can't think of anywhere else I'd like my baby to go.
Babies explore many opportunities for sensory discovery and gentle play. Our educators will care for your baby and help them learn and develop new skills, from walking to talking. There’s also a cosy reading corner and climbing supports to help physical development.
After a busy morning of exploring and learning, there is time to recharge. We know how important and rejuvenating naps are, and make sure that when they need it, children can sleep.
As their story begins to take shape growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover and learn. Toddlers enjoy role play with a mini market and our indoor climbing frame develops movement and co-ordination.
Children also 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.
With growing confidence and ability, we prepare our pre-school children for the learning journey ahead with a focus on phonics, numbers and social skills. There are also maths and curiosity stations, a large kitchen area and access to the indoor and outdoor gardens.
Children spend their final year at The Learning Tree preparing for primary school. By this time, they have made firm friendships, experienced our learning environment in full throughout the year 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.
