The Ethos at Little Acorns:
Little Acorns Nursery is a place where every child feels at home, happy, safe, valued and well cared for, right from day one. Our job is not only to look after under-fives, but also to nurture them and help them become the very best versions of themselves. With this approach, they flourish and absolutely thrive. Everything we do and everything we have at the nursery for the children is there with such aims in mind.
At Little Acorns, under-five children receive an outstanding early years education through a learning and development plan that’s tailored for each individual. Every area of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum is covered. This is all orchestrated through a Key Person that’s allocated to each child, high quality, qualified early years practitioners and two-way feedback with parents. In this way, we get a fully-rounded picture of each child’s progress at every step, identifying their strengths, interests and perhaps any areas that might need extra attention. Our bespoke learning and development plan for each child brings out the very best, in them in every area.
Our stimulating approach encourages a natural curiosity and love of learning through the instinctive desire to play, explore and discover — all at their own pace. With teachable opportunities being everywhere, children learn to find as just as much joy in doing as they do in arriving at the finished result.
As they progress, children make strong bonds with peers and childcare practitioners alike, improving social, cognitive and physical skills, building confidence, independence and a whole host of other new skills on the way. Together, we build the strongest foundations upon which every child can thrive, achieve personal bests in every area and be school ready by the time they leave us at age five.
