Nurturing our little acorns for over 30 years!

“Excellent nursery. Great environment, friendly, capable staff. Happy children who are stimulated and alert. Educational and developmental needs taken very seriously but in a fun way! Meals are home cooked on a daily basis with healthy and varied menu provided. I would recommend Acorns as a great home away from home. My little one has been there since she was 18 months old.”
Fiona & Sam

“From the first day our son started at Acorn we have always been warmly welcomed. He has smiled every day since starting at Acorn and who wouldn’t with a menu he has, brioche, strawberries, curries, fish cakes, coupled with a rich learning and sharing environment, horses, cows, and sheep to say hello to every morning and caring arms to give him a hug. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.”

Mark & Kerith

“Absolutely brilliant nursery and staff. The children spend so much time outdoors, learning, playing and having fun. Our daughter has been safe and taken care of so well, and most importantly has had the absolute best time over nearly 5 years. Staff are great at keeping you informed about what’s going on with your child and developments within the nursery and have been excellent at updating us throughout the pandemic. Can’t say enough good things about them! Thank you so much!”
