Our nursery at Westcroft is situated in the Westcroft Retail District, which is in the south west corner of Milton Keynes. It is just a short distance from the A421, just off the V2 and H7 grid roads.
The nursery rooms are spacious and well equipped. The younger children, under 2, have their own room with a separate sleep area and milk kitchen. There are two separate rooms for the older age-groups, both with direct access to outside. In addition, we also have a sensory room.
The nursery has three outdoor play areas, giving 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. Our pre-school children walk to Howe Park Wood for their Forest School sessions.
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 enjoy a range of activities that cover all areas of learning and most children make suitable progress because of this.- Ofsted report
Staff encourage children to make friends. They feel settled and secure because they play with staff and children that they know well.
The management team have a clear vision for improvements that they want to make to the nursery. There is an appropriate development plan in place to secure future improvements to outcomes for children.
