Partnership story Lime Tree Day Nursery

Lime Tree Day Nursery

From industry placements to career development, the relationship between Lime Tree and the College has forged a solid path for learners aspiring to work in childcare.

Lime Tree Day Nursery, located in Loughborough has cared for babies and children between eight weeks and five years old for over ten years. The nursery, which cares for 85 children and operates both year-round and seasonal care, has worked with Loughborough College for many years on apprenticeships and career paths, supporting learners as they grow into childcare providers able to support babies and children of varying ages and needs.

Apprentice Support Manager, Georgina White, said:

"Working with Loughborough College is always an easy and smooth process. Any query or question we have is answered and they have supported us with everything from vacancies, through to applications and funding."

Loughborough College has facilitated industry-quality teaching and support to learners on apprenticeship programmes for several years. Learners are able to engage in a hands-on experience, leading to opportunities for progression and promotion in a vast number of industries. With years of elite experience supporting apprentices, Lime Tree Day Nursery has recognised the expertise of Loughborough College in supporting career development. Developing strong partnerships and connecting with local employers is integral to Loughborough College’s core values, and forging strong links for our learners is fundamental to our sustained success. We take pride in nurturing learners who are deeply committed to their personal growth, as evidenced by their unwavering pursuit of continuous learning and progression into advanced apprenticeships and foundation degree programmes.

We have had many apprentices and learners complete their qualifications with the College to a high standard become incredible childcare practitioners.
