Little Acorns

Little Acorns is led by an enthusiastic and experienced team. All staff have relevant childcare qualifications. Set in the gorgeous village of Evershot – with our base at the village hall. We operate a free-flow system whenever possible where the children can choose to be either inside or outside playing. We go outside in all weathers. Parents/carers are encouraged to bring children equipped for getting messy so that the children can become fully engaged in their play. We aim to have access to the outdoors all year round and hope that most of the children’s learning can take place in our garden and the surrounding beautiful countryside that we have on our doorstep. Our daily sessions always include lots of singing, nursery rhymes, role-play and messy play. We also run forest school sessions with the neighbouring school, joining in with their reception class and forging excellent links for a smooth transition to school.
