We welcome 2 year funding along with children who can pay to attend. The cost is £12.50 per session. This includes snack.

We do a range of adult supported and child led activities in Acorns. We love to visit the local library, have fun with our music and movement sessions, enjoy visiting and exploring our woodland area and baking cakes, biscuits and celebrating foods from different cultures using some of our favourite recipes.

How a key person works
We feel it’s important that your child feels safe and secure. Quite often we find that a child will settle well with a particular member of staff, this person will become your child’s key worker. We will work with you at all times through verbal, written reports and information that you give us at the times of registration.
We welcome you into Acorns at any time.

We can be contacted through the main school – 01793 521903 and by email.
