Shaping Futures

Our philosophy is to provide the same high standards of care and dedication that we would want for our own children. The ethos and culture we work hard to create, is that Acorns is a place of fun, escape and imagination, where your children are nurtured and encouraged to learn through discovery and invention.

Acorns Nurseries Limited is an independent company established in 1988. With 11 Nurseries located in South Wales and the South West of England, we provide the highest quality childcare in Cardiff, Newport, Nantgarw and Bristol. We also operate highly regarded in-house nurseries for the BBC, Office for National Statistics and Aviva.

The ethos and culture we work hard to create, is that Acorns is a place of fun, escape and imagination, where your children are nurtured and encouraged to learn through discovery and invention. Each nursery makes the best use of spacious playrooms, good natural light and are decorated with neutral colours to provide a calm, cosy atmosphere. All equipment and resources are of the finest quality and are chosen for their play and learning potential.
Each of our nurseries is managed by an experienced Manager, Assistant and Team Leader. They are responsible for the day to day running of the nursery and work closely with the Directors who oversee every aspect of the organisation. We have a team of full and part-time Nursery Nurses caring for your children, ensuring sufficient cover for holidays, sickness and training.

There is a balance between structured learning through child-initiated activities and those directed by a Key Carer. A well planned curriculum gives children opportunities to be creatively involved in their own learning which must build on their ability, interests and understanding.
