Dad to Edward


“My eldest son attended Appletree nursery.  He loved it. The staff are very friendly and the children have lots of activities to join in with as well as loads of toys to play with. My younger son will be starting there soon.

They have recently had a major refurbishment and an extension. There is new security fencing surrounding the whole site. It looks amazing.

I highly recommend Appletree!”


Mum to Heath and Lowri


“Both my children attended until we moved recently. They enjoyed their time there, hit all their key milestones, made great friends and loved the staff.

The recent improvements to the building provide a fabulous indoor and outdoor space for the older children. There is lots to keep the children busy, a well qualified team with great structured learning, adhering to the curriculum.

They have also had great feedback from Ofsted too, which is great to know as a parent.”


Mum to Maisie


“Within weeks of starting at Appletree Maisie began to flourish and I have been delighted with her progress ever since. Getting Maisie to wear hearing aids has been difficult but with the support of the Appletree staff she is now wearing them every day and her speech has improved dramatically.

The support and care Maisie has been given has been fantastic and it is comforting for me to know that she is in such a loving and friendly environment while I am at work.”


Mum to Chloe


“I am more than happy with the care Chloe has received at Appletree. All the staff are great with the children and I would definitely recommend the nursery to others”.


Mum to Fearne and Poppy


“Appletree is a caring environment in which both my daughters have flourished. Staff are approachable and really engage with children in order to develop their interests and help them to learn through a wide range of appropriate activities and play.

I would highly recommend the care provided and am so pleased my children benefitted from their positive experiences at Appletree. Thank you to the whole team”.


Mum to William


“I have used Lound After School Club in Chapeltown for the last 8 years. My children have always been well cared for and are always happy to attend. The attitude of all the staff is excellent, I really can’t praise them highly enough”.


Mum to Maddison


“Maddison really enjoys coming to Appletree. It’s enjoyable and has different things to do, making things and playing with different friends.

Appletree is a very good service as they pick the children up from school, walk them to their place and stay open till late. It gives you time to leave work and get to pick your child up in plenty of time.

Appletree is a reasonable price”.


Mum to Lucy and Charlotte


“I love the security of knowing my children are safe and well cared for after school. When I come to collect them they are always laughing and having fun with staff who know them and cater to all their needs”.


Mum to Paige


“Paige thoroughly enjoys her time at Appletree. She only attends once a week but I can never get her out. I find Kristy, Jess and Fay to be extremely helpful and always smiling and friendly. I would definitely recommend”.


Mum to Samuel


“Appletree After School Club provides an excellent standard of childcare in safe surroundings. My son goes every week and has done since his first week of starting school.

The level of care is of a high standard, provided by trained staff who are caring, enthusiastic and engage all children in a variety of activities.

Appletree staff take immediate responsibility of children from school finishing time ensure children wear high visibility clothing where appropriate, they then walk the children to After School Club. My son thoroughly enjoys his time at After School Club and always want to stay there when I arrive to collect him.

My son also attends Appletree Holiday Club in the holidays and again a very high level of care is provided in a relaxing environment, allowing children to play indoors and out in conjunction with excellent organised trips and activities.

Both the After School and Holiday Club provide the level of care you want for your child and all staff are friendly and approachable, many of them my son sees as ‘second mums’!”

Mum to Olivia, Evie and Archie


“All three of my children have attended Appletree Nursery and I can honestly say I wouldn’t send them anywhere else. The staff that have looked after my children over the last few years have been fantastic – they really care about the children.

My three have really enjoyed their time at Appletree, always saying they’ve had a great day. When my eldest daughter left for school she was really sad to leave and the staff even more so! I couldn’t recommend Appletree Nursery enough”.


Mum to Scarlett and Connie


“We chose Appletree initially for the opening times. When we first viewed the nursery we were impressed with the staff/child ratios and that not all the staff were young – they were mature, experienced staff with years of experience!

We have recommended Appletree to other parents, always stressing not to judge the nursery by the building but by the caring friendly staff. They have always been flexible when I have occasionally changed days, times etc.  Overall we really feel we made the right choice for our two children”.


Mum to Hayley


“We chose Appletree Nursery through excellent recommendations from family and friends. Our daughter has a fantastic time with all her friends and learns new things each day from the very caring and knowledgeable staff at Appletree”.
