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:


 Mrs Haynes - Lead Teaching Assistant

Miss Matthews - Teaching Assistant 

Miss Kwan - Care Assistant




We have lots of new children in Little Acorns and it would be great if you could bring in a photograph of them and their family at home to go on our display board in the home corner. 


Summer 1


In Little Acorns we will continue to explore our indoor and outdoor environments. Please ensure your child is dressed weather appropriately as we go outside in all weather conditions. Please provide your child with a sun hat and put on sun cream before attending school on the days we are lucky enough to get some sunshine.  Also please being a suitable coat as it can still be a little chilly and we may get some April showers.
