We Embrace Learning Through Fun…


At Oak Tree, we place the needs of the child at the centre of everything we do. We embrace learning through fun, playful activities and experiences based on the interests of the children. Our qualified and experienced practitioners aim to foster confident, independent, resilient and creative learners through supportive teaching approaches.


Children are inspired by nature and we ensure that children have opportunities for outdoor learning every day. Our practitioners recognise the special relationship between young children and the outdoors and the positive impact it has on their well-being and development.

All our nurseries have a dedicated garden providing exciting learning opportunities for the children all year round.


Each of our nurseries have a dedicated Forest Schools Leader. Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. We are excited to announce that we have extended our offer at Fleetwood to include Beach Schools experiences.


At Oak Tree we recognise the importance of ensuring your child has the very best start to their school education. We make “school readiness” a priority for our pre-school children.

All our nurseries our based in schools and benefit from being next to the reception class. This ensures we have close links with the teachers and makes the transition from nursery to school as smooth as possible for your child.


At Oak Tree, we welcome all children and families. We have an open-door policy, so feel free to call in and visit us at any time.
