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 - Teaching Assistant 

Mr Cheetham - Apprentice Teaching Assistant
