The Lime Trees - Burton Joyce

Burton Joyce is our flagship pre-school. 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.

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!

Burton Joyce pre-school also boast access to a multi-sensory room which is equipped 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.

Fantastic Nursery!
This is such a lovely nursery, I could not ask for anyone better to look after my son. My son started here just after his 3rd Birthday and it was the best decison we made. The staff are lovely, they are very welcoming, and my son loves them all! He always talks about them (even the staff in the office), he has always been very happy here. The staff are very proffesional and settled my son in well. The nursery and play area is very clean, it is nice and big so there is plently of room for the children to play. They have a lovely outside area for the children to play, with plently of toys to keep the children busy. The nursery offers lots of variety of play for the children, and all the children are very happy when I have collected my son.  The nursery offers breakfeast and afterschool club for the children attending Burton Joyce school, my son loved the older children, they were all lovely and would play nicely with the younger children. I have used the holiday club which is very flexiable and a life saver in the school holidays! They put on different activties/themes everyday throughout the holidays and send out a letter with the information of whats on. The activities are great that they put on and you can tell alot of time and thought is put into these actvities, my son loves holiday club, and is so happy to go and see all his friends. I would highly recommend Limetree's to anyone, it is a super nursery and I have never been unhappy about leaving my son here because i know he always has a fantastic day no matter what! I always look forward to him telling me about his day when I collect him, and if I pick him up early I normally get told off because hes having far to much fun to come home just yet! Review date: Mon 16/11/2015
