Acorns Nursery School has worked with children, and their families, for over 30 years. We take children from 2 years old up to 4 years old. We are unique in having 3 qualified teachers, and 4 experienced Nursery Nurses on our staff. We moved to new premises in Calcot (a large detached house with a spacious garden) in September 2015. Our premises offer a “home from home” with different rooms and outdoor areas which provide varied play and learning activities for children.
