A stimulating, safe & healthy choice

Harnessing Creativity

Over time, we’ve designed and adapted programmes to meet the high standards of today’s world of education. By providing a supportive environment, we make sure each child receives exactly what they need.


Stimulating Learning

What we can offer each child

 We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is produced by the government to set standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.

The areas of learning set out in the EYFS are: Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


6 Acres Outdoor Play

Unique facilities

We fully embrace outdoor play and elements of the Forest School ethos. All of our children spend a large amount of time outside every day, enjoying the benefits of being able to run around safely whilst learning at the same time. Our aim is to allow all children to develop a healthy ethos which will give them the opportunity to adopt this throughout their lives.


Fun Activities

Something for everyone

A range of clubs run throughout the week such as yoga, music and movement, cooking, allotment and fun sports - all included in our fees.

Healthy Eating

Healthy growth

We have our own nursery chef who prepares and cooks all the food in our onsite kitchen. We have our own allotment area where the children are able to plant seeds and grow their own foods. We encourage them to water and look after their plants and they are able to help prepare and cook the foods when they are ready. This teaches children about the importance of healthy eating and also how to make sensible balanced food choices, setting them up for a healthier future. See our sample menu here:


Outdoor Learning

Discover Nature

We use every possible opportunity to get the children outside and to extend their learning using nature and our 'green time'. All of our staff at Acorn to Oak are committed to helping the children learn both inside and outside, teaching children that learning can occur everywhere, at any time.

Team work

Experienced Team

Your child is in safe hands

We have many qualified staff members that plan activities for your child, tailored to their needs and likes. Children are grouped together by similar age and ability, allowing them to thrive. Our nursery management team has over 60 years of combined knowledge of running successful childcare businesses.

Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value

Amazing nursery, we joined as they opened and our son loves it there. The staff have been so welcoming, friendly and super adaptable. They have so much outdoor space and an allotment which is walkable through the grounds and which they go to regularly. It's a really relaxed place where children can be children. Management are wonderful to deal with.
Very glad I found them! Thank you :)
