A daynurseries.co.uk 2016 Top 10 Recommended Individual Nursery, South-east England

Tel: 01908 507282

The building was formerly the village primary school, and retains the character of the original Victorian architecture. The rooms have been sympathetically refurbished to provide light and spacious play areas.

Our youngest children, thdownload prospectus shenleye Ladybirds, have their own room. The older children have 3 rooms for play and learning; one of these is an art and craft room which includes our very own children’s kitchen.

The nursery has extensive gardens and outside play areas, including our timber-framed outdoor classroom. Outdoor play is a key aspect of Acorn’s ethos and the children benefit from spending time outdoors every day, whatever the weather. We also take full advantage of our local setting, which has retained its village feel and has several attractive walks which we can enjoy.


A strong key-person system and good care practices that meet children’s individual needs ensure that they are happy, settled and form good relationships with staff. This ensures that children’s emotional needs are well met. Staff demonstrate a strong focus on safeguarding children. They maintain a safe environment and understand the signs and symptoms to look for to identify safeguarding concerns about a child. As a result, risks to children are minimised. - Ofsted report
