LEARNING & PLAY
Little Acorns all-encompassing activities provide opportunities for each and every child to grow in their own particular style. This approach has given rise to recognise outstanding practice in childcare in the form of an ambassador status awarded by our parent company A Step Ahead.
Having a strong relationship with the Southwater Infant Academy has meant transitions have been a very positive experience for child, parent and carer. It has also provided a means to getting more involved with the local community by being involved in school events, such as Fetes, Open Days and much more.
Little Acorns is very popular and runs to high occupancy throughout the year with a significant waiting list. The nursery had its first post registration inspection in 2010 and received a Good rating from Ofsted. Southwater has a very vibrant community spirit and the nursery is very well supported by the parents, carers and grandparents who have used it across the years.
