Seven areas of learning
On starting at the nursery, older children already have a certain amount of knowledge and skills. At Appletree Day Nursery, we build on this foundation by following the seven areas of learning. These are:
All our pre-school children learn colours, numbers, days of the week and months of the year in both Welsh and English. We also teach Spanish with an external teacher.
Babies, toddlers and pre-school children
The daily routines of the children depend on the age group and competencies of the children.
With the babies, we follow each child's own routine, as their needs and capabilities vary so much.
We have a varied range of equipment and toys for stimulating play which helps the babies' development and encourages basic social skills; from learning to sit up through to taking their first steps.
