Little Acorns @ Loders Primary Academy

Little Acorns @ Loders is a foundation stage unit at the heart of Loders Primary Academy. Our pre-school is led by a qualified Early Years teacher supported by a highly experienced Early Years practitioner. We are also supported by the Head of School and the Acorn MAT Leadership Team. This is unique to the local area and a strength of our provision. Our aim is to give your child the best possible start and a seamless transition to primary education. Our nursery provision welcomes all children and can cater for 2 to 5 year olds. We have nappy changing facilities, but ask that parents supply both nappies and wipes.
