Welcome to Oaktree
As parents of four children we see how hard it is to balance everything. One of the key parts of our concept is affordability, our concept offers a different league of childcare but we believe it should be available to everyone, our prices are about 25% less than the Co. Antrim average and substantially less than the average for the Uk and Ireland.
In addition to our prices being 25% less than the co. Antrim average, we recognise the difficulties for families with more than one child so we also offer 20% discount on a second child.
Our Capped Prices.
We were the first nursery to offer our special capped pricing system to limit the maximum cost for a parent. When we calculate your price if it goes above our capped price we limit you bill to this amount until your kids get to an age where their price drops below the cap again. Our capped price is most effective with twins or siblings that are close in age, especially if they are in our Baby unit.
Our Capped Pricing Is Most Effective with Babies
Capped price for 2 Children
Capped price for 3 Children
Capped price for 4 Children

There are many benefits of learning through play, we have 6 groups of children that rotate around our huge complex allowing them to choose their own preferred area of fun learning.
Our Results Speak for themsleves!
Every new visitor we have, whether it’s a child, parent or inspector, they have the same reaction. When we see that big smile we know we are going in the right direction. Our success can be attributed to the fact we are never satisfied and we constantly aim to improve our care. Team Oaktree always give 100% effort to ensure all our children and parents are 100% happy!
Oaktree understand every child is different, every child’s learning process is different. When it comes to learning we recognise children remember better when they are having fun. There are so many aspects of play that improve a child’s all round development. At Oaktree we promote, Learning through play.
- Early introduction to science & maths
- Encourages creativity, imagination & expression of feelings
- Develops body movement, strength, flexibility & coordination
- Helps with turn taking, sharing & mixing with others
- Play also allows children to relax and let off steam.
At oaktree we constantly strive to improve our safety standards. Oaktree Baby is unique as we have four separate play rooms and a sensory suite, this allows for exceptionally calm rooms with much less accidents. Equally Oaktree Kids is unique as we have the kids rotating around specific areas of learning through play, this in turn reduces accidents. Learning through play is our ethos, we believe it is important not to be risk averse but risk aware, it is essential to allow the children to learn through play.
Happiness is the key to our success. Our logo has always been Oaktree Kids are better by smiles. Over the last 18 years we have focused on what makes our kids happy. One of the biggest reassurance for parents is when they hear their kids asking to stay on longer each day, we believe every child should have fun at Oaktree. We are very lucky to have past children coming back as parents, it is lovely to hear adults now coming back and recalling the happy times they had in Oaktree as a child.
Learning through play is our ethos. A child is constantly learning, they will remember best when they are happy. Oaktree focuses on a huge variety of play activities each offering a different type of learning.
We embrace the fact we own and manage Oaktree, this allows us and our Team to form and maintain great friendships with you the parent.
