Little Acorns nursery
Little Acorns nursery runs every morning between 8.45am - 11.45am. 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
Acorns run both a morning and afternoon session: 8.45am – 11.45am and 12.30pm – 3.30pm.
