There are twelve children under the age of 2 years in this home from home environment. We work in close partnership with parents and carers and endeavour to care for babies/toddlers in a way that complements their home routine.
The room is divided into 3 main areas;
A carpeted area for crawling and playing.
A lino area for eating and messy play.
And a separate sleep room containing individual cots for babies to rest and sleep.
All children have access to outdoor play on a daily basis whatever the weather (we provide waterproof suits if raining)
Within the group, all children are supported in developing to their full potential at their own pace. Our named key person system enables us to ensure a planned curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual child. A wide variety of developmentally appropriate play activities and equipment are carefully chosen to support the children’s individual developmental needs, which is complimented by a high level of individual adult input. Activities are provided to stimulate the children’s natural curiosity and to meet their fast changing physical and emotional needs as they progress to toddlerhood.
We also endeavour to give each baby/toddler maximum personal attention, helping them feel safe and secure.
To maintain communication between parents and staff we operate a diary system which will contain a brief summary of your child’s sleep times, feeds and comments on your child’s day as well as all the key moments of your child’s day.

“I have sent all 3 of my children to Acorns Day Nursery and I cannot recommend them enough. My children have thrived in the supportive and caring environment provided by the exceptional staff at Nursery. The children have been treated as individuals and their different needs catered for expertly. I have always found the Nursery team to be loving and caring and they are always available for formal and informal discussions about the children. Nursery have provided a wide range of learning experiences for the children, including French classes, Debutots and a visiting farm, to say but a few. I have been impressed with just how well the key workers get to know the children and enjoyed seeing the stages of development achieved in their Learning Journey. Most importantly, the children were smiling when I dropped them off and smiling when I picked them up after having a happy fun filled day.”
“Acorns Day Nursery has played a huge part on our families life over the past eight years. Both of my children have been incredibly happy there and, over the years, the teams dedication to the children and their learning journey has been fantastic. They have not only ensured that my children have been well cared for and happy, but they are equipped with the skills to start school and grow as individuals. I would highly recommend.”
“My son and daughter started at Acorns when they were about one and spent several years at Acorns Day Nursery before leaving for school. They had a lovely time at the nursery, initially upstairs in the baby room and subsequently down stairs in the "Great Oasks" room. The staff were great and provided a super environment for my two to grow and develop.”
