Established in 1997, this small and friendly nursery is situated in the village of Brafield-on-the-Green, which is approximately 4 miles from Northampton, on the A428 between Northampton and Bedford. It is in an idyllic setting, a quiet location on the edge of the village, next to the village prospectus-brafield

One of the nursery’s most attractive features, and extremely popular with the children, is its wonderful outside space and gardens, fully enclosed and secure for the children to enjoy. The nursery gardens offer plentiful opportunities for outdoor play and learning, which is a key aspect of Acorn’s ethos. Pre-school children have regular Forest School sessions, either in the nursery garden or at nearby Salcey Forest.

The building itself was formerly the village primary school and, whilst retaining the character of the original architecture, it has been sympathetically refurbished to provide a warm and homely environment. The rooms provide light and spacious play areas, with a child-centred focus.

All the nursery meals are freshly prepared in our kitchen by our cook and we aim to provide nutritionally balanced meals which are both healthy and appetising. Acorn Childcare has achieved both the Smile Award Plus+ and the Healthy Early Years Award across all nurseries.

Children are extremely happy in the relaxed atmosphere. This is an extremely friendly, welcoming and inclusive nursery which benefits from a highly competent manager and a genuinely committed and caring staff team. The nursery is a very safe, secure and stimulating place to be for the young children who attend. Their individual needs are fully met within this homely environment where children make good progress in their learning and development and enjoy themselves on a daily basis. - Ofsted report
