Little Acorns Childcare

Day nursery

At Little Acorns we aim to provide quality childcare in a safe, happy, caring and stimulating learning environment for children aged two to five years. Little Acorns Childcare is held in a bright, well-lit, well-ventilated and spacious hall within the Christian Resource Centre. Children are separated into two age-appropriate areas within the hall; 24 to 36 months and 3 to 5 years. We believe children benefit most through using play as a basis for early learning; accordingly, we provide a wide variety of experiences and activities. These activities are planned around the Early Years Foundation Stage to meet the needs of individual children, which lay the foundation for children’s future learning. We are fully inclusive of all children’s needs ensuring children are supported individually to make progress at their own pace. We have strong links to local primary schools and professional agencies ensuring good transitions and quick identification of children’s additional needs. We have two purpose built outdoor play areas, which allow children to have fun whilst aiding their physical development. We are a warm and friendly team who work together to ensure the happiness of our children, our staff are qualified and experienced in childcare and are always happy to answer any questions you may have. We have an open door policy so please feel free to visit us.
