Orchard Trees Day Nursery

Exceptional Children's Nursery for children age 0-5 years

Creating a Community of Creative Thinkers

OUR Ethos

Let Children Lead the Way

At Orchard Trees we believe that all children are born with infinite potential and wonder. Our role as early years educators is to support children’s intrinsic curiosities to motivate them to learn. We are strong advocates of giving children the freedom to explore and make their own choices in an environment full of natural interests.

We let children take the lead and carve out their own path of discovery. By valuing the individuality of all, we aim to scaffold creative thinking as we undergo a journey of learning together.



We pride ourselves on offering high quality care that is flexible to suit all families needs. Whether that’s term time only or ad-hoc sessions, we are sure to be able to help. Located just off the A19 on the commuter route between York and Selby, between the villages of Thorganby, Wheldrake, Escrick and Riccall . . . we take the stress out of childcare!


We are truly a unique nursery. We don’t follow the latest fads or buzz words, we are proud to have been doing things our own way for 15 years.

By knowing the needs of our community, children and amazing team , we have been able to create something unique for our Orchard Trees Family.


Everyday allows the chance to experience something new! Our inspiring curriculum gives every child the opportunity to become a creative thinker.

By valuing expression and autonomy in both the children and staff we give everyone the freedom to shine.


I would definitely recommend Orchard Trees.

". . . We were really nervous as to whether our eldest would settle as he struggled after lockdown at his previous setting. However, we have been so pleased with how well they have settled, and they are thriving. Every staff member you meet is fantastic and really personable. . . there is a real family feel and a very tailored approach to each child’s needs. Lots of fantastic activities and great communication about the children’s daily routine and learning journey. The nursery also goes over and above with numerous special events, . . . I would definitely recommend Orchard Trees."

The staff are amazing

". . . both my wife and I couldn't be happier. The staff are amazing and have been great . . .and we didn't need to worry; they have and still do everything they can to make her have the best time during her days . . .They spend lots of time doing extra activities like visiting the farm next door, and our little girl has come on so much since going. We'd highly recommend Orchard Trees Day Nursery."


"My son absolutely loves it at Orchard Trees. The staff are caring, professional, friendly and very welcoming. The nursery puts the children at the heart of everything they do. I’m a big fan of the app, I love being able to what my son is up to whilst I work. 10/10, would definitely recommend it to a friend or family member."


“The care is tailored to the child rather than a one size fits all’ approach… They are in tune with parents’ needs and are flexible with hours which is fairly rare with local nurseries.”
