Apple Tree, a fantastic Nursery indeed… I started off my little one at 24 months on a 2 day a week program and moved to a 5-day program because I could see that she was absolutely enjoying her time at the Nursery. The daily activities ranging from phonics, art and craft, garden play, library time and circle time are varied, creative and well supervised. Apple Tree maintains very high standards of cleanliness and hygiene which any mum would appreciate. They have an open line of communication with the parents and very clear and sensible policies about health and safety. I especially love their healthy eating policy which has been a great start for my daughter as she gets ready to start at Doha College in September. The staff are positive, friendly and enthusiastic and share a fantastic relationship with the children which, in turn, provides a great class environment for the little ones… Diya has made a lovely circle of friends and so have I from the community of mums at Apple Tree! A well-run Nursery with the children and their well being and development being the focus of it all… Undoubtedly, one of the top choices in Doha!

Our daughter Lily started with Apple Tree Nursery 2 years ago and it is amazing how much she blossomed. She has always been a confident little girl but her great teachers and all the lovely staff at Apple Tree helped her to become even more self-confident. Lily’s speech developed dramatically within the 2 years and she never leaves her class without giving every team member a big hug and kisses. Every morning she enters Apple Tree very excited and every day she leaves Nursery with a bright smile on her face.

Apple Tree Nursery is such a warm and welcoming environment to be part of. Initially, our daughter was very shy and clingy, but after a few weeks of her settling in, she was like a different child! The Butterflies team were so kind and gentle and so patient with her. Since then her confidence and language have come on leaps and bounds! She has learned to count to 10 and she loves to sing and dance with her friends. We are so happy with her progress and couldn’t recommend Apple Tree Nursery enough!

My daughter has been at Apple Tree for nearly 12 months now and I can not rate them highly enough. They have been fabulous helping her in her transition into nursery life and made her feel settled and happy. She is coming on leaps and bounds in her speaking and overall development.

Apple Tree Nursery is a very well organized nursery with the well being of the children a top priority. The communication with parents is excellent (via newsletters, noticeboard, and the daily information sheets). Staff is helpful and approachable. Activities are well organized with a current theme project. The wall displays are ever-changing with the children’s own work and plenty of artwork is brought home too. My daughter Nefeli who graduated last year from bookworms class with Mrs. Nicola Delaney as class leader talked constantly about her teacher and her class activity. She has made friends with both younger and older children. With painting, writing, coloring, roleplay and multiple daily outdoor activities, it is no wonder my daughter wanted to come to nursery every day. Her first words of the day were usually ‘Is it a Nursery day?’ and in her own words meant ‘It’s lovely.” This year my youngest daughter Natalie is following in her big sister’s footsteps by attending the Butterflies class with Mrs. Nelda Esteron as class leader. Not only does my daughter enjoy her time but her vocabulary has increased greatly and my husband and I feel that this is due to the staff and the activities provided. We are confident and happy in leaving her every day in their very competent care.
