Welcome to the Acorns Day Nursery Website.
"Overall the quality of the provision is outstanding"
(OFSTED Dec 2009)
A child’s early years are the most formative, and childhood is a precious time.
Acorns Day Nursery is privately owned and managed this enables us to provide a small homely
nursery offering a loving and safe environment in which children can thrive emotionally and educationally learn new skills through planned and spontaneous activities. He/She will be encouraged to learn about the world around them exploring and experimenting, socialising and developing relationships with other children at his/her own pace.
Children are encouraged to learn through planned, purposeful play with a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities. Our learning and development follows the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.’
Assessment of your child in the form of observation-based assessment during their day-to-day activities form an integrated part of the learning and planning process. Each child’s needs are planned for individually so that they can reach their full potential.
The nursery is registered with Wokingham District Council as an Early Years provider. Parents can receive funding, currently the terms after their child’s third birthday.
Acorns Day Nursery Ltd is an equal opportunities establishment so that no child, parent or member of staff is disadvantaged as a result of their gender, race, religion, culture or ability.
The nursery is open Monday – Friday throughout the year with the exception of Bank Holidays and a few days between Christmas and New Year. Our opening times are 8am – 6pm.
We operate an open house policy within the nursery, and parents are encouraged to take an active part in nursery life.
We recognise that parents are their child’s first educators and that they have unique information and understanding of their child which the staff will want to share. All parents are made to feel welcomed and valued. We welcome any suggestions and opinions and believe in an equal exchange of information.
Staff are happy to discuss with parents any concerns or aspects of their child’s development at a mutually agreeable time.
