Our Vision, Values and Aims

At Apple Tree Nursery our vision is:

    To transform the lives of the children and families we work with, through creating a nursery which feels like home with an extended and supportive family environment.

    This vision is embodied in our nurseries aims:

  • to provide a safe, caring, nurturing, welcoming and enabling environment for children to play, learn and develop.
  • to enhance children’s learning and development, by watching, listening and providing them with the tools they require to go about their ‘work’; Play is children’s work: it is natural, essential and instinctive. Children learn through play.
  • to promote positive attitudes to self and others and encourage and develop a sense of identity.
  • to work closely with parents/carers and the community aound us to promote and enhance the nursery vision.

Our values guide the way we work.

    Together we will:

  • respect and look after each other and the world around us.
  • create a challenging, engaging, nurturing and responsive environment.
  • provide a safe, supportive and inclusive nursery where we value everyone.
  • build on strengths, interests and aspirations of all.
  • promote equal opportunities, respect diversity and value the special contribution everyone can make.
  • actively encourage and promote health and well being.
