Values & Ethos

“Life must be lived as play” Plato.

At Appletree Nursery School we believe in providing rich learning opportunities that allow children to grow and develop through exploratory and imaginative play, whilst supported by staff who will extend and challenge their learning helping children to become independent learners who can think critically and problem solve. Our ethos and curriculum are both underpinned by the belief that the development and support of social and emotional wellbeing underpins resilience, a positive sense of self and a lifelong love of learning and achievement.
