Growing with Orchard

We have five rooms at Orchard: Pips, Blossoms, Red Apples, Green Apples and our popular after school club, Orchard Explorers. Each room is dedicated to the different ages and stages of the children, but with our flexible approach, we do not move up children according to their date of birth, but instead when they are ready for the move into the next group. Pips is dedicated to babies from 3 months and is a room full of love and warmth, gorgeous sensory activities and exploratory play experiences, all within a room that offers flexible and individual care around your baby’s routines.


Little Apples gives toddlers between the ages of 2 and 3 years old a fun and exciting environment in which to learn and to explore.Big Apples, for children from 3 to 4 years old, provides that extra stimulation for the inquisitive mind, whilst ensuring that boundaries and rules are understood in both play and friendships.Before advancing to the next room, we take great care to ensure that each child is given time to adapt to their new environment; first judging when a child has reached the necessary level of development, then allowing them a little more time each day in the next room.
