Welcome to The Acorns Nursery Website!

Acorns Nursery School is a friendly, nurturing setting where children enjoy learning and playing! Our caring, and dedicated, staff create an encouraging, safe, and fun environment where each child can thrive.

We are a registered Charity located in a large, detached house with a spacious garden. It is a “home from home” setting with several rooms and outdoor areas which provides a variety of play and learning experiences. Our setting is like their own home, and, having a choice of different rooms to access, helps children who might find a large hall more intimidating.

Why choose us?

  • Primary School teachers, as well as Nursery Nurses, on staff.
  • Homely environment. Several different rooms to play and learn in.

  • Smaller size (24 children per session maximum) with smaller adult to child ratio 1:6 (3-4 yr olds) and 1:4 (2 yr olds).
  • Long established (over 30 years) so now working with the children of former pupils!
  • Large Garden, covered patio, and lovely decking spaces to play in/on outside.

Virtual Tour

My daughter attended from 2018 – 2020 and loved Acorns nursery! She was very shy when she started and despite the current covid-19 situation she left very ready for school! The staff are friendly and caring, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Acorns to someone in the area!

My eldest son went to Acorns two years ago and my youngest goes now. It is a wonderful pre-school, the staff are amazing – experienced and attentive. They have fantastic space both inside and out, with a great range of toys and activities, that they change along with the weekly theme. My eldest developed so much in his time there – he grew in confidence and independence, he was able to write his name and start on phonics, it really prepared him for school. Both boys love Acorns and we as parents couldn’t be happier, we would definitely recommend.
