Apricot Day Nursery has been established since 1991, and provides full day care Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 6.30pm for children from birth. Apricot is very popular, thriving on recommendations from our very strong partnerships with parents. We operate across two separate sites, which means that all children are cared for and taught in a small setting, and enables our practitioners to work very closely with children meeting their individual needs, working closely with families.

Both sites are situated close the town centre of St Neots, Cambridgeshire, and approximately a 10 minute walk to the railway station, with trains every 30 minutes into Kings Cross. We are conveniently situated a couple of minutes’ drive from the A1 and the A428, with bus routes every 30 minutes into Cambridge. We offer free childcare spaces for funded 2, 3, and 4 year olds and have close links with children’s centres.

Our nursery site is on the grounds of Longsands College, and our Preschool and Out of School Club is on Almond road, outside Priory Park Infant School. At the nursery site, we have three base rooms for children, each benefitting from having their own safe, enclosed, and age appropriate outside play area. This provides all of our children with the benefit of free flow playing, learning and exploring in both the rich and stimulating indoor and outdoor areas. We prepare children with the skills that they need for school, which we support through having a separate preschool site. This helps us to prepare children personally, socially and emotionally for their future transitions to school through our challenging and interesting indoor and outdoor environments and our close links with local schools in the area.

At Apricot, our indoor and outdoor learning environments are very carefully thought out to reflect children’s individual needs and encourage them to explore, interact and become confident and develop a love for learning. We promote children’s independence and provide them with a strong foundation of personal, social, and emotional development to become confident, capable learners and communicators. Within a safe and loving atmosphere, our caring, experienced and qualified practitioners plan a curriculum to suit each child’s developmental stages, covering all area of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Payment by nursery voucher, tax free childcare, including 15 or 30 hours government funded free childcare is available to all qualifying parents and children.
