We are there for your child and you

Our work has one clear focus: your child's individual needs. In order for us to support your child's development in the best possible way, we employ people with different educational training backgrounds. They all regularly attend further training courses, which enable them to bring new ideas and proposals to their daily work place - ideas that will also benefit your child! We aim to have every member of staff trained in Paediatric First Aid or as soon as a course is available to do so.




Sendco Designated Lead (LAC) Child Protection Officer

Emma Cothill

Head of Appletree Corner Daycare & Pre school


For the past 21 years I have worked in the childcare sector looking after children of various ages.  My qualification in HNC child and youth studies, which was completed in Inverness, opened the door to my desire to work in the childcare environment.  Travelling with my husband and two children, including an extended period in the USA, has not only enriched my knowledge in the field of childcare, but it has also broadened my understanding on how to encourage children to thrive in a stimulating, fun, and safe environment.  I am now looking forward to sharing these experiences with all the children, parents and staff that join my new purpose built provision.
