Our Trips Programme For Nurseries


Apples & Pears gives children under 12 and their families the opportunity to discover inspiring educational, social and cultural activities through awarding grants to organisations who can run or host our group trips programme.

Nurseries and Children’s Centres

If you've made it this far, you're potentially interested in supporting our core work with nurseries and children's centres. A new venture for us! We've run 3 successful pilots in Tower Hamlets and Lambeth in 2017/18 and along with building on these, will be looking to add at least 2 more nurseries to our portfolio in 2018/19.

  • As always, 100% of raised funds go to projects and not internal operational costs (these are covered privately). 

  • The grants are used by the nurseries and children's centres to run our Trips Programme.

  • Our grants cover transport costs, entry fees and learning materials that support the trips (e.g. activity workbooks, museum headsets). 

  • Family support/parental engagement workers typically run the trips and tailor the groups to tackle a wide range of issues including helping migrants settle into the city, encouraging parents to take a more active role in their children’s education and encouraging communities to get to know one another.

We'll be looking to award around £5,000 in grants to nurseries and children's centres in 2018/2019 and would love you support to help us achieve this goal!
