Applewood Nursery is securely located on the College of West Anglia’s King’s Lynn campus and can care for up to 54 children aged from 2 months to 5 years old.
At our last Ofsted inspection there were a number of outstanding elements commented upon, including meeting the needs of individual children, the excellent relationships with parents and the systems for evaluating practice to offer a high quality service.
As well as a modern, fully-equipped indoor facility, we have an exceptional outdoor play area that allows children to explore and develop whilst learning in an environment that encourages independence and physical activity.
We recognise how crucial it is to have a highly skilled and experienced team who are passionate about their work and dedicated to making a positive difference to the lives of each and every child.
Each day we provide a fantastic range of play and educational activities. There is regular routine, which takes into account the differing stages of development and individual interests. Activities are planned in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and we seek to involve children in the planning processes to ensure we satisfy their needs and interests.
Our day also includes the opportunity for the children to socialise at lunch and dinner times. We offer healthy hot and cold meals, cooked fresh on the premises by our own cook.
Parents as partners
The partnership between the family and the nursery staff is crucial to the child’s happiness and development.
When your child comes to Applewood Nursery we build on the foundations which you have laid and will continue to develop at home with your family.
You are the most important people to your child so we need your help to ensure they progress and succeed in reaching their potential. Once they are settled at nursery we hope you will be able to stay and help from time to time – you are always welcome. You can help in many different ways: talking with the children, joining in activities, sharing books with children, helping them on the computer, woodwork, baking, playing games, accompanying us on visits or helping with jobs around the nursery – whatever suits you is great for us.
