What The Parents Say

"I would recommend Acorns as it is run very professionally, whilst providing a homely loving and happy environment where our daughter can be herself. Everyday she has so much fun and is offered a wide range of inspiring activities by an amazing, dedicated team".
"We chose Acorns based on their reputation and after speaking to other parents and themselves. They promised a great service and a variety of 'extras' that really appealed to us and they have since delivered above and beyond our expectations. A great service, friendly professional staff and a very happy child. Would recommend to anybody."
"Our minds are put at ease when dropping our child off in the morning by the warmth and friendliness of the staff. Great care is taken to meet and exceed the specific needs of our child and the daily report cards are a great way of letting us know how they have got on during the day."

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.
