Nestled in the heart of Burton Joyce village our flagship pre-school at Burton Joyce is the jewel in our Lime Trees crown. Consistently rated as Outstanding by Ofsted, this is where The Lime Trees story first began. We are extraordinarily proud of the superb range of facilities which children have access to on a daily basis and we think you’ll agree that it really is a first-class pre-school.
Accepting children from the age of 2 years and up, we also host a vibrant and busy before and after school club and holiday club for Burton Joyce primary school on who’s site we are based.
Surrounded by the rich, rolling hillsides of rural Nottinghamshire children really do get the full benefit of outdoor play and adventure here at Burton Joyce. We offer regular Forest School sessions in our woodland camp, located right next to the nursery grounds. Back at pre-school we have our campfire base where children have the opportunity to learn how to safely cook a range of meals and drinks over a real fire. Hot chocolate and marshmallows anyone?
Forest school is just one element of our very own Curriculum ‘Play’ which is delivered by our highly qualified and trained staff every day for children. There is never a dull moment here and children are always encouraged to play and have fun!
Our beautifully presented Art Atelier means children can learn about a range of traditional and contemporary artists, whilst giving them an opportunity to emulate their work in an age-appropriate way. Richly resourced with a wide range of water colour paints, paint brushes, real clay and more crafty supplies than you could ever begin to imagine – this is the place that childhood dreams are made of. We should point out thought that we will never ask children to produce a piece of ‘art’ just to bring home to you to put on the fridge. Whilst we know this is lovely to have as a parent, we firmly believe that children should be allowed to learn and explore their own processes through their artwork and we will always encourage them to engage in the process over the end product.
Burton Joyce pre-school also boast access to a multi-sensory room which is equipped to with a range of sensory and light equipment so that staff can offer sensory sessions and small group phonics and language support for children on a regular basis.
