Welcome to Acorns Nursery

Welcome to Acorns. We have a wonderful staff team, led by Mrs Stock. The Acorns' team are fully committed to your children, to meeting all of their needs, nurturing them and making them feel safe and secure while they are with us.  

 

Acorns has over 30 children who attend and have lots of fun learning, exploring and playing in an exciting, engaging and stimulating environment. 

We share, care and nurture each other, supporting our children's development to their fullest potential. 

We have a varied and full curriculum where our children access a wide variety of learning opportunities and experiences through play. We also benefit from weekly outdoor learning, PE and cooking sessions all of which build our children's confidence, and self esteem. Each term in Acorns brings a new and exciting topic for our children to learn about and engage in. 

 

Our pre-school children benefit from experiencing focussed learning delivered in a fun and engaging way. We prepare them for the next step in their learning journey, attending school. Our two year olds have a dedicated learning environment which offers them an enhanced provision which they enjoy, in addition to the open learning space that Acorns provides.

 

Acorns has free flow access to a purpose built outdoor learning environment which is fully utilised on a daily basis by all of our children in all weathers

Our children are also fortunate to be able to benefit from being an integral part of the Trinity School family and as such have access to the vast array of resources and experiences which we use to support and enhance their journeys with us.
