Staff

At Appletree Childcare, we believe staff to be our most important asset - a fact that shines through when you see our staff retention record; the majority of our staff have been with Appletree Childcare for over 4 years!


Our recruitment process is robust, with each staff member undergoing an interview process, extensive reference checks and vetting through an enhanced Access NI Disclosure.


Staff receive a thorough induction, and have access to both in house and external training in Paediatric First Aid,  Allergies & Epi-Pen, Special Educational Needs and Fire Warden training to name just a few!


Our Nursery Manager Samantha is supported by a supervisory team with extensive knowledge and experience, and a genuine passion for their roles. We are sure you will be impressed with the dedication our team shows!
