Consistent care

Apperley Lodge was rated “good” by OFSTED at its  inspection in April 2015:

“Staff provide children with stimulating play areas”
“Staff have a good understanding of safeguarding procedures”
“There are strong partnerships with parents”


From Pips to Apples

We have 51 places for children ranging from birth to 5 years. The lodge is divided into three rooms, based on the children’s ages, and each room is overseen by a Room Leader.

Our highly trained staff, several of whom have been with us since the nursery opened, provide committed care and development.


Getting out and about

We make good use of local community facilities and regularly take groups of children to local places of interest to broaden their knowledge and experience. Each summer our pre-schoolers have a day-long outing to a place of interest and in 2017 we went to St Leonard’s Farm. The previous year it was a trip to Eureka.

Parents and carers are encouraged to participate in nursery activities and the fact that so much of our new business comes from recommendations from existing or past parents, shows the excellent reputation enjoyed by Apperley Lodge.
