Nursery Room Set Up For September 2021

We have busy getting ready for Nursery in September. Our room set up has changed. The children in Squirrels and Hedgehogs have the blue carpeted area for playtime and Badgers, the wooden floor space. Please take a peek at our pictures. We can’t wait to see you all again and hope you’re having a lovely summer.

Nursery Places September 2021

We are now arranging visits for 2 , 3 and 4 year olds for places in our Nursery School for September.
The children are organised in small, age related classes with a carefully planned balance of adult led and child initiated learning.
Established for 35 years, with three qualified teachers alongside Early Years practitioners, we offer an extensive, carefully planned curriculum.
With a large garden and accessible central location, we will give your child an excellent, nurturing early years education.
Please call us on 01603 665740 or email us at admin@treehousechildrenscentre.co.uk if you would like to visit.
An application form can be found on this website to secure your place for September.

Summer Playscheme 2021

In the light of the 4 week delay in fully lifting Covid restrictions until Monday 19th July, we sadly do not feel we can run a holiday playscheme this Summer.
Children attend Treehouse from throughout Norfolk so we feel the level of risk of spreading the Covid infection through mixing so many children is just too high.
At present the recommendation for indoor childcare settings is to operate with distinct, consistent bubbles of a maximum of 15 children. We do not have any covered areas in the garden, so it doesn’t seem practical to operate solely outside.
Maintaining 2/3 separate groups of children within the building, without any interaction between the groups for up to 10 hours a day just isn’t feasible. Also it would mean that each child would have to attend the same pattern each week and not have contact with more than 14 children in total at Treehouse, throughout the scheme. We could not operate viably with one group.
Whilst the date for lifting these restrictions is the 19th July, it feels too close to the start of the school holidays to risk the necessary planning and staffing with so much uncertainty.
We apologise for having to make this decision, but we really feel we have no other choice in respect to the safety and wellbeing of our families.
We really hope we will see you all soon.
Take care and kind regards,
Sally and the Treehouse team

Summer Playscheme 2021

With the end of Lockdown hopefully with us by the end of June, we are hoping to re-open our holiday playscheme on 22nd July 2021 for 4 weeks 😊
It would be really helpful to know how many children are likely to be taking up places. If you think you will be using our holiday provision this Summer, it would be great if you could message or email us (admin@treehousechildrenscentre.co.uk), to help with our planning.
Further details will follow in June. Looking forward to seeing old faces and new very soon!

Nursery room set up Nov 2020

We would like to share some pictures of our current room set up as Parent/Carers cannot access the inside of the building at present. The resources and activities available change weekly, but the room plan will remain the same. Hedgehog and Badger Nursery groups use the carpet area and Squirrels play on the wooden floor space.


9th November 2020

It is with great sadness that we inform parents of the death of Amali Rose-Brown. Amali attended Nursery during Sept 2018-Dec 2019. He was a sweet, kind and gentle soul and will be forever in our hearts. A life so short but beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered.

October Playscheme and Afterschool Club 2020 Update

Unfortunately due to low demand, we will not be able to offer provision for the October Playscheme. At this stage it looks improbable that we will be able to open the Afterschool Club before January. We are so sorry for the inconvenience this causes for many of our families. We wish things were different, but we have to work with the situation as it is. Hopefully we will be operational soon and things will be back to normal.

Updated Safety Measure Oct 2020

As of Monday 5th October 2020, we have decided that all parents should wear a mask when arriving and collecting their child/ren from Nursery. Staff will wear a visor at this time. With circumstances and Government guidelines ever changing, we will ensure safety is paramount.


18th September 2020

October Playscheme 2020

We are looking into opening the holiday playscheme for October half term.
In order to make a decision we need to know how many children would be using our provision.
We will be offering 15 places for the week 26th-30th October.
If you decide you would like to take up a place, then the fees would reflect the cost of the full week (5 days @ £25 = £125) as the place will be your child’s each day. They do not need to attend every day.
We are operating in this way because we are only able to take 15 different children in one bubble. Three staff will be working with the children in the course of the week. Extra days will be available on 22nd and 23rd October for those children not attending school on those dates. There will not be any trips at present , due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The children will spend time outside and in the building, but they will remain in one group. Please email us if you would like to be considered for a place for this scheme at admin@treehousechildrenscentre.co.uk.

Plans for sept 2020

From September, the Nursery will be open from 8.30- 2.30 Mon- Fri which means we will be offering the 15 hour and 30 hour entitlement. We have places for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years old. Please email or call us if you are interested in your child benefiting from the nurturing, professional early years experience we provide. Children will continue to be grouped in small, consistent groups to minimise risk and maximise learning.

At present, the After School Club and Holiday Playschemes are unable to operate due to Covid regulations. We hope to be able to reopen these by half term and will keep parents updated via our website and facebook

Summer Playscheme 2020

Sadly, we have decided that it is neither safe or pragmatic, to operate our playscheme this Summer. Maintaining social distance between children in a free flow environment, ensuring the same staff work continually with designated bubbles of children, no outings in the minibuses, alongside existing requirements that children can only attend from one school, have sadly made it untenable for us to deliver a scheme this Summer.
Hopefully things will have recovered somewhat by September and the After School Club and October playscheme will be up and running again.
Thank you for your continued support.

Coronavirus Update 16.05.20

In the light of schools possibly reopening on 1st June, we are assessing how many of our families within Nursery would like their children to return after half term.
We will be sending a letter to all Nursery families next week. This will include further information regarding staggered arrival and collection times and more about how the Nursery will operate.
At this stage we are proposing small, separate groups of up to four children, initially with 3 and 4 year olds returning.
Your child’s safety and welfare is naturally of paramount importance to us and we will be operating as stringent procedures as we can.
Please email us at admin@treehousechildrenscentre.co.uk if you would like your child to return.
