Nursery Experience

  >  Nursery Experience

Helping your child develop and learn through creativity and fun.

Welcome to Acorns Nursery School. We aim to create an attractive and stimulating learning environment where children feel confident and secure. Acorns is committed to providing high quality care and education for 0-5 year olds.

Emphasis is placed on learning through play and exploration both inside and outside in the fresh air.

We aim to protect the environment for future generations and strive to be paper free by 2030.

We implement best practise safeguarding procedures to ensure all children, parents and staff feel safe and secure.

We build strong parent/carer partnerships focused on inclusion, openness and good communication.

Excellent kitchen facilities with an onsite cook, who prepares heathy, nutritious meals for all children, taking into account specific allergies and dietary requirements.

We use the industry leading technology to improve the nursery experience for all.

"We have Forest School qualified staff who provide children with opportunities to develop their social and physical skills using real tools, in a safe and calm environment. Being outside is known to help stimulate children’s senses, develop their self-esteem and their confidence as they are encouraged to have a go."

Our Classrooms

At Acorns Nursery School we have multiple rooms equipped with resources appropriate for the children’s stage of development. We have carefully planned transitions between the rooms in collaboration with parents and the child’s key person.

Baby Room

(0-2 years old)

We recognise how important these first, formative months and years of a child’s life are. Our staff are trained to work specifically with babies and ensure they get emotional and physical nurturing alongside sensory stimulation.

Our Baby Room uses the garden multiple times throughout the day to help develop their physical skills and get fresh air.

Toddler Room

(2-3 years old)

Staff plan for more challenging activities for our Toddler Room, which helps foster their language and literacy skills through social interaction. The children are encouraged to progress and become confident and independent in their play.

Our Toddlers are prepared in readiness to move to the Pre-school class by learning numbers, days of the week, colours and some shapes in circle time. This also allows for quality time with their key person and helps form a secure attachment.

Pre-school Room

(3-5 years old)

Our Pre-school Room engages in a range of educational play opportunities to prepare them for school. The children become more independent as they take advantage of free-flow activities between indoors and outdoors.

We begin to further the children’s curiosity about how and why by using experiments such as sink and float activities. Staff also encourage the children to engage in sustained shared thinking through problem-solving. We aim for our children to become independent and autonomous learners.

Nursery Software

Acorns partners with a company called Blossom Educational to provide parents with an app that gives them all the information they need whilst at the nursery. The app is used as the main form of communication and is used to send daily diaries, observations, nursery news and invoices.

We have received very positive feedback from parents on how the app has helped them to settle into nursery life and how much they enjoy getting updates/pictures of their children throughout the day.

Happy Parents

Here is a selection of feedback we have received from our wonderful parents.

“Thank you to your team for building such a lovely bond with our boy. It has made us feel safe in our decision to trust him in your care."
