Welcome to Little Acorns Nursery
About us: Introduction
Welcome to our brilliant Little Acorns Nursery webpage. Little Acorns is the name of our nursery for 2yr to 3yr olds which runs every morning between 8.45am - 11.45am. We have a comprehensive nursery provision at Mrs Bland's and we pride ourselves on making sure your child is ready, keen and confident to attend our nursery. When conditions allow parents and children are very welcome to visit, meet the staff and view our classes, please contact the school office if you would like to visit. Further advice on admissions can be found at the bottom of this page
We have a wide open door policy within Little Acorns. A member of staff will greet you on the door every morning and see your child out at the end of the session. We encourage you to come and speak with the staff with any concerns or queries.
Your child will be allocated a Key Worker. The key worker will ensure your child is settled and will monitor their progress, ensuring their needs are met. The key worker will also be a point of contact should you wish to discuss your child's progress.
We offer a healthy snack and drink throughout our session but children can also bring water. During the cold period please make sure your child has a coat, we go outside every day
A message from Little acorns staff
We are very excited to meet our new little acorns this year
We look forward to helping them explore both our indoor and outdoor areas.
This term our topic is “why do you love me so much?” Within this, we will be learning more about ourselves and our families, establishing routine and developing their confidence for school life.
Please ensure your child brings a named water bottle, pair of wellington boots and a set of spare clothes to each session as we are unable to supply these currently.

Last school year we had brilliant fun finding out lots of interesting things like: Are Eggs Alive?
Just have a look at some of the brilliant activities we did, no wonder we're tired when we get home!
We had a great week in the Spring sunshine, exploring and searching out all the new growth on our plants, shrubs and trees. It was really nice to see all the daffodils and flowers so we have been creating and painting our own, not just the traditional yellow colour either!
We have been reading the story of' My Mum' by Anthony Browne and talked about our mums and of all the special jobs they do and how they look after us. We've spent quite some time making something special for our mums ready for Mothering Sunday.
For our maths sessions we have been looking at numbers and doing our best to recognise number shapes. We had a fantastic time completing a number hunt, trying to find numbers all around the nursery.
We love to sing and this term we will continue to have weekly hall sessions for singing and our P.E session. The children enjoy taking part in yoga sessions, practising their yoga poses!
We also enjoy weekly singing session with Acorns to help develop the children 's confidence and for them to become familiar with other areas of the school.
