The Learning Tree Nursery, with its main building, was established over thirty years ago (with Kid’s Club introduced in 1995) by volunteers living in the Carlton Miniott community. The aim was to provide low cost quality day care for nursery age children in the Thirsk and surrounding area.
Since then it has developed from 2 mornings per week into a fully fledged wrap-around child day care centre, providing Ofsted inspected and approved facilities for 2 – 4 year olds and out of school hours care for 5 – 11 year olds. The smaller Portakabin was kindly donated to the Learning Tree by a local businessman and long standing Trustee, in 1995.
The modular purpose build class room constructed by North Yorkshire Timber in 2013 replaced the deteriorating portakabins giving children aged 2-11 a fantastic environment to learn and develop.
