Welcome to Appletree Nursery!
We have been open since July 2005 as an independent nursery caring for children from 3 months to 5 years.
Since 2007 Appletree has been operating from Calne Children’s Centre. The nursery is purpose built and offers wonderfully spacious rooms with lots of natural light and direct access to the large outdoor area.
At Appletree Nursery our aim is to offer your child the best possible care outside the home. We aim to engage children in exciting, fun learning experiences within a safe and friendly environment, enabling them to develop socially, emotionally and educationally to their full potential. As a team we continually reflect on our practice and look for ways to improve and develop the nursery. Staff are given lots of opportunities for professional development to extend their knowledge and understanding of early learning and development.
The nursery is open 51 weeks of the year from 8am till 6pm. Various session times are available. Breakfast and After School clubs run daily.
The recruitment and retention of staff is a priority at Appletree. We know how important it is for children to establish a sense of stability and security. To try and ensure this we carefully select our staff, offer competitive rates of pay and supportive working conditions.
Once working with us, staff have regular appraisals and are encouraged to take up a range of training opportunities to foster their professional development. All staff are qualified to a minimum level 3 childcare qualification or above. We strive to facilitate an environment where all staff have the confidence to communicate effectively with each other, management and parents.
