This delightful open plan purpose built nursery can be found on the Coleg Y Cymoedd site in Nantgarw, opposite the Showcase Cinema and its array of restaurants and eateries.

Angeleen, Shellie and their team work hard to ensure that children are stimulated and have lots of fun and interesting activities each and every day.   The older children are enjoying action songs in the garden while the pre-schoolers are busy preparing for their Graduation ceremony, whilst outdoors the 2 – 3 years olds trip trap over the little wooden bridge and hold cycle races on their trikes.   The covered outdoor area and large open gardens ensure that even the worst weather can’t stop our fun!

Located near directly off the A470 and near to Junction 32 of the M4, this nursery is perfectly placed for travel in or out of Cardiff and the Valleys.

What The Parents Say

We looked at various nurseries and there is no doubt that Acorns stood out as the best by far. The staff are fantastic and everyday Osian learns something new. I cannot recommend 'Acorns' highly enough.
Very good place to take children.

At Acorns we know the importance of healthy minds and healthy bodies and how vital it is for children to eat the right foods for growth and development.   We also know that if children eat well in their early years they go on to make healthy choices throughout their lives.

We believe  in providing home cooked, delicious meals every day and encourage the children to take a healthy interest in food.  Each nursery has a vegetable planter where the children sow seeds for peppers, courgettes, beans, potatoes, strawberries and more, these are then harvested and used by our Cooks in nursery meals.

Our Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer menus and are always packed with new ideas and seasonal fruit and vegetables.  The children enjoy breakfast, a 2 course lunch, high tea and a 5 o’clock snack.  All of our nurseries hold Gold Healthy Eating Snack Awards.   For babies and little ones we provide a puree and mash menu to ensure your child is enjoying foods for the correct stage of their development, older children are encouraged to self serve at the table to allow independence.

Our Nursery Nurses sit with the children at each meal to encourage and assist them at mealtimes, this promotes good table manners and social skills.

Cooking activities are a popular part of nursery life, and the children love to take part in food tasting sessions.    We celebrate different cultures and festival at Acorns and enjoy learning about and discovering foods from all over the world.

Acorns Nurseries are now providers of the Childcare Offer in Wales for eligible working parents of 3-4 year olds. Parents can apply by contacting the local Family Information Service.
