Appletree Corner Daycare & Pre-school Ethos.
At Appletree Corner Daycare & Pre-school, we have a good understanding of children's lives and their social contexts, basing our teaching around them. Supporting and encouraging personal development, autonomy and creativity are top priorities for us. Developing social interaction and understanding differences in others also plays an important role in our work. We also support you, the parent, in bringing up your child.
