Where Everyone Belongs

Little Acorns

Welcome to Little Acorns!

We believe that every early year’s child is unique and has the right to learn through play.

We provide a rich and enabling environment, where children feel they belong, are understood, and are inspired to succeed.

We know that this requires skilful interactions by knowledgeable adults to build the foundations for life.

Our Early Years Curriculum

Staff you will meet are:


 Miss Perry - Lead Teaching Assistant

Miss Matthews - Apprentice Teaching Assistant 

Miss Wildgoose - teaching Assistant 



Autumn 1 newsletter

Autumn Term 1

September - October 2019


Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic summer and we are looking forward to having all of our children back to continue our learning and playing, as well as welcoming some new children into our provision which is exciting! 


We have also reintroduced a key worker system so that each child has a key worker with an adult that they have built a strong relationship within Little Acorns. Please feel free to talk to any of the staff about this and we will be handing out a letter to inform you of your child's key worker. 


We are continually making changes to our room regarding the resources and areas for the children to learn and explore. Please come in and have a look at what we offer within our provision. We will be also be focusing on our outdoor space and spending more time to learn and explore outside as we build on this area. 

There are a few items that we are still in need of and some of these you may be able to help. If you have any of these items and are able to donate them too us then we would really appreciate this :) 

The items are:

  • Dress up scarfs
  • Bangles/dress up bracelets
  • Pots and Pans 
  • "Tiny Baby" clothes
  • Hats 
  • Slippers (for our home corner)


We will continue to have our story of the week as well as the rhyme of the week. We do send home a copy of the song of the week as this gives you a chance to join in with activities we carry out within Little Acorns. The stories of the week we have chosen around interests of the children that we have noticed to support events from home life or nursery. 

This term we have chosen to focus on traditional nursery rhymes for our song of the week. 


"Stay and play"

We are now offering "Stay and Play" sessions every 2 weeks to give you the opportunity to play with us and your children to see what the children gain from the activities and areas of learning provided. These are half hour sessions 8:40 -9:10 for AM and 12:15-1:15 for PM. Please come and join us for a play smiley (Dates to be confirmed for Autumn 1).
