The Learning Tree Nursery

Welcome to The Learning Tree Nursery
We offer morning, afternoon and all day places to two, three and four year old children in nursery. We accept government funding (THINK2 and 30 hours included) in addition to paid places; see prices below.

We are based within Stoneydelph Primary School and form part of the school’s Foundation Stage, working closely with Reception. The Learning Tree offers children an exciting, well-resourced and secure place to play, learn and when needed, rest. 

We encourage children to develop a love for learning and curiosity of the world around them. The learning is tailored to the needs and interests of the children and helps them become independent, confident learners. We also like to have open communication with our parents and try to encourage them to be part of the children's learning journeys.
Please feel free to call and have a chat with our Nursery Manager Mrs Sadler on the following details:
