This bright, spacious nursery with its sunny garden offers a wealth of new colours, shapes and activities for your baby to explore. All our equipment is of the finest quality, chosen for its play and learning potential and is age appropriate to ensure that babies and toddlers are learning through play.

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.
