Located on the College of West Anglia King’s Lynn campus, Applewood Nursery can care children aged from two months to five-years-old.
The nursery is a caring and safe environment that provides children with a place for them to develop personally, socially, emotionally and physically.
Its focus is on the development of children's communication and language skills whilst also improving IT, expressive art and design and also gaining a wider appreciation of the world around them.
Staff and management seek to know the children well to ensure all learning is tailored to help each individual child reach their full potential.
The nursery aims to develop the skills and knowledge that make children independent, healthy, resilient, inquisitive, happy, assertive, individual and creative.
Staff use learning opportunities and activities to support children’s progress. Staff members measure improvements and use the Tapestry resource to record the individual journeys of all of the children. Parents are encouraged to monitor and contribute to this by posting and commenting as regularly as they can.

b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.
a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.
The Average Rating of 4.583 for Applewood Children's Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.583
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.
If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.
The 3.093 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Applewood Children's Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.093
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Hollie C (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 6 June 2017. Relates to June 2017.
My daughter started Applewood Nursery at 10months old in September 2016, I was very apprehensive about sending her to nursery & that coupled with me still breastfeeding on demand made the situation all the more tough.
Needless to say, I had nothing to worry about, applewood nursery had a home away from home feel & the staff were all so reassuring and accommodating to mine and my daughter's needs, they allowed me to go and breastfeed whenever necessary & couldn't have been more supportive of our breastfeeding journey. My daughter settled in so quickly! The daily sheet my daughter gets means I know exactly what she's been up to including when she's napped and eaten, The tapestry online app is fantastic and means that I get to see pictures & videos of her in the nursery. Her key worker is very friendly and approachable as are all the staff, & I feel totally at ease in the knowledge my child is well looked after & happy while I'm working. Definitely, recommend.
