Charlie & Gracey both love their time at Step Ahead! The nursery is a caring, secure environment that inspires confidence in both children & their parents. I always feel I am leaving them in safe hands and that they will enjoy lots of attention, love & hugs from the incredible staff that work there. There is something very special about every member of staff knowing your child’s name. Thank you and all the wonderful people that make it such a happy place.

Lydia has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Little Acorns and looked forward to every session she had. The staff have been amazing and taken good care of her. Emily and Jo have done a great job managing a lovely pre-school. Thank you.

Such caring, child & fun loving staff; they do activities I wouldn’t dare do with my children at home because of the mess involved – my daughter just loves it! She has experienced exciting and really fun activities on a regular basis that other children perhaps don’t get to do at all. She has been at the nursery since she was 11 months and at nearly 4 years old she has definitely developed beyond her years due to the care & attention of the staff. It’s a fantastic nursery – my husband and I couldn’t be happier!

I have been impressed with the quality of care and engagement by the team to ensure the children are interested, happy and keen to learn. Natalia has definitely benefited from attending the pre-school!


We have been so pleased with everything at Little Acorns. Emily is a fantastic manager and all staff are friendly, helpful and great with my children.

Ellie started in January 2018 after moving into the area. Little Acorns made the transition as easy as possible for Ellie and in no time she was settled, she loves nursery and has come on leaps and bounds! Myself and Ellie’s dad are so happy with all the staff at Little Acorns. Thank you!


Ben’s development has come on so much since joining Little Acorns. It’s not only us that has noticed but also friends and family. He has lots of fun that he doesn’t realise he is learning. The communication is great and nothing ever seems to be a problem- thank you.

Amy has thoroughly loved her time at Little Acorns and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emily and the team to any friends or family. We will miss you all but we know Amy is truly prepared for school due to the love and care from you all. Thank you so much.
