Welcome To The Apple Tree Nursery

Apple Tree Nursery was established in 2014, in Al Humrah, Umm Al Quwain, as one of the first early year education centers to follow the UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in the region. The Apple Tree Nursery was founded with the objective of giving children (from 3 months to 4 years) an early years education of international caliber. The Nursery has grown rapidly in terms of popularity and services – winning the trust of parents and proudly nurturing the minds of the future.

It is now equipped with dedicated areas such as baby room, toddler room , nursery rooms, indoor gym along with an outdoor sensory play area. The launch of the newest branch in the Al Salama region will give more parents the chance to give their children a premium Early Years education.

Young Toddlers

These are the most sensitive years and make the biggest impact on the child's openness towards growth and willingness to learn.

Our young toddlers stay in our special baby room called ‘Blossoms’. This room is made for kids of the age of 3 months until 2 years.


Toddlers are coming to terms with their decision making skills and the right education can instill positivity, creativity and productivity.

Our toddlers stay in our special room called 'Lillies'. This room is made for kids of the age of 2 years to 3 years.

Pre- Schoolers

Pre- Schoolers love to have fun and respond actively to external stimuli. Our EYFS based curriculum gives them the space they need to grow.

Our pre-school classes are the 'Orchards', where kids above 3 years of age get ready for the adventure of school.

Pre- K

Exposing your child to the right environment in the Pre-K years  helps to ready the child for the challenges of modern life.
