Services

Childcare

Our breakfast club, daycare, lunch and after school club provide much needed, affordable services. Parents and carers are able to return to employment, access further education and receive family support.

Some of our work includes working with older people and we have different events and clubs on offer. More details upon request.

The Apple Trust is committed to the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage and follows the guiding principles in shaping our setting. These are:


The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

  • Every child is unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured;
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships;
  • Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers; and
  • Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Covering the areas of Learning and Development

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy - encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write.
  • Mathematics - using numbers and simple addition and subtraction problems
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

We do this through our daily activities and resources;

help in assisting children in their playing and exploring, in their active learning and in creating and thinking critically

Children can also take part in regular baking and other activities in both small and large groups. All these activities are done with the support of our caring and trained staff.

We have a Sensory Room on site, which every child has access to. This room is enjoyed by both children and adults.
