Kents Hill is in the south east of Milton Keynes and the nursery is located just off the H8 Standing Way grid road. It is within walking distance of the Kingston shopping district and just a few miles from junction 13 of the M1.

The nursery building is purpose built; an innovative octagonal shape with a central atrium and light and spacious rooms.

Much of the nursery has been extensively refurbished since Acorn took over the nursery from MK Council in 2012.

The nursery benefits from a large garden, which can be accessed from each of the rooms. This gives children the opportunity to free-flow indoors and outdoors to access a full range of activities. Acorn places a strong emphasis on outdoor play and learning, and the children will be outdoors at some point every day, whatever the weather. Pre-school children take part in Forest School sessions in a dedicated area of our garden.

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 content and enjoy their time at nursery. Key persons ensure that parents receive regular information about their children’s care, learning and development. Staff are secure in their understanding of how to keep children safe. Safeguarding policies and procedures meet requirements. The outdoor learning area provides excellent opportunities for older children to play and explore. Opportunities for active learning, planned around the children’s interests, are plentiful and help to ensure that all children are making progress. - Ofsted report
