We follow the British EYFS Curriculum to nurture your child's inner talents, instill confidence, stimulate cognitive creativity and boost positivity - to ensure that the child's foundations are strong, flexible, progressive and ready for modern challenges.
We believe in channeling the modern child's search for entertainment and utilize it to create interactive and nurturing experiences that make a difference.
Children are given opportunities to find their talents and develop their cognitive skills, so that the learning experience is driven by the child's willingness to learn and grow.
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.
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.
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.
Apple Tree Nursery works closely with children and respectfully with parents to provide an improving level of early years education in an environment that celebrate diversity and encourages children to explore their full potential
We work to create an eco-system in which children are subjected to dedicated nurturing, with a special focus on becoming productive and well-adjusted members of society.
“It is our mission to enable young children to thrive in a learning and caring environment; encouraging parent partnership and active participation to optimize the child’s growth and development, to reach their full potential. Preparing children to enter school ready to learn and to participate in family and community life”.
How We Work
We will accomplish our mission by being an informed, innovative and responsible provider of early year’s education and childcare and by providing the facilities and services needed to build on the child's early experiences gained at home.”
