Acorns Nursery

Acorns Nursery provides flexible care for 3-4 year olds.  

A typical day in Acorns class includes two short periods of class ‘carpet time’ activities, such as stories, music, phonics, numeracy or circle time, together with lots and lots of child-led play. We play both indoors and outside every day. The Acorns staff team follow the children’s play interests to support their learning and development within this fun-filled and active environment.

Acorns Nursery provides flexible care.  Children attend either half or full time as follows:

Part time Monday to Wednesday

          Monday 8.45am – 3.00pm     

          Tuesday 8:45am – 3.00pm

          Wednesday 8.45am – 11.45am 

Part Time Wednesday to Friday

          Wednesday 12.00 noon – 3.00pm

          Thursday 8.45am – 3.00pm

          Friday 8.45am – 3.00pm

Full time Monday to Friday

          Monday to Friday 8.45am – 3.00pm

Our learning environment is carefully designed to allow the children to access the resources independently and we encourage the children to follow their own interests. The children have access to a wide range of carefully selected play resources.  Our main indoor learning areas include a building and construction zone, a messy/art area, small world toys, the dressing up/role play & home area, and the carpet and interactive whiteboard area. Outdoor learning areas include the stage, sandpit, water play, climbing equipment, balance bikes and a mud kitchen.
