We believe that mealtimes are a social occasion in which children learn to sit in small groups with an adult and share their food and communicate with the other children and adults within the group.
Our tasty meals are freshly prepared on the premises by our experienced cook to provide a healthy well balanced diet. We operate a 4 week seasonal rotating menu. We are happy to cater for specific allergy or dietary requirements. For babies purees and formula milk is prepared on sight, meals are adapted to suit baby’s individual stages of development, introducing a variety of tastes and textures.
Breakfast is served between 8am – 8.45am and consists of cereal, milk or fruit juice and toast. Lunch is served between 11.30am and 11.45am (depending on the age group) and consists of a hot two-course meal. Light afternoon high tea is served between 3.30pm –4.00pm (depending on the age group) and is either hot or cold.
The children are given water to drink with their meals and fruit is provided every day with one of the two meals. Milk is provided during the morning and afternoon for all children during snack time.
You can rest assured that a five-star food hygiene certificate backs every meal.

“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.”
