Our nursery at Burton Latimer is the largest in the Acorn group, with places for up to 80 babies and children. The nursery is on a half-acre site, adjacent to the sports field; it is purpose-built with large and airy rooms and underfloor prospectus burton latimer

One of the nursery’s most attractive features is its wonderful outside space, which includes a well-established sensory garden. Outdoor play is a key aspect of Acorn’s ethos and the children benefit from spending time outdoors every day, whatever the weather. Pre-school children enjoy Forest School sessions in an area of the garden.

A home visit from the Manager and child’s keyperson is offered to all new families as we believe children benefit from meeting their keyperson in a familiar environment, before attending the nursery for settling-in sessions.

Our cook prepares all the nursery meals and snacks onsite each day. We aim to provide nutritionally balanced meals which are both healthy and appetising; this has been recognised in our Healthy Heartbeat award from Kettering Borough Council. Acorn Childcare has achieved both the Smile Award Plus+ and the Healthy Early Years Award across all nurseries.

…the staff team have a strong understanding of how to plan activities that take account of individual children’s interests and learning styles. They use information gathered from their observations and from home in order to support children to achieve well given their unique starting points and capabilities. …The very strong partnerships with parents, based on effective communication and sharing of information on a daily basis, result in children receiving a consistent approach to their care and learning. - Ofsted report
