Early Years Teachers

Save the Children have reported that every nursery should have a qualified early years teacher to help toddlers develop skills like speech and language, as reported on the BBC News today.

The charity in conjunction with Institute of Child Health at University College London produced the report ‘Lighting Up Young Brains’.  The report says failure to properly stimulate toddlers’ brains during nursery years could set them back for decades and highlights pre-school years as a “critical opportunity” for the brain to develop key skills.

At Acorns, we follow the Foundation Phase Framework for Children’s Learning in our Welsh nurseries and the Foundation Stage Developmental Matters for our nurseries in England.   We have our very own qualified Early Years Teachers who inspire and challenge the children’s potential for learning.  This is then enhanced by daily activities with key carers and nursery staff for a holistic approach of learning through play.



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.
