Little Acorns offers high quality childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

We are an established 54 place nursery which opened in April 2004 and we are based in Clifton Children’s Centre, at Clifton Green Primary School.

‘Children learn best through play’…

At Little Acorns, we strongly believe this, and all our children learn effectively through both spontaneous and carefully planned play. All our focused activities are planned to support and encourage children’s learning and development through their likes and interests.

Although we provide a variety of fun activities to enhance your child’s development, we strive to create a home from home environment with lots of care, love and cuddles.

All meals cooked daily by our experienced cook using locally sourced produce. All dietary requirements adhered to from weaning your baby to any allergies which may occur.

We are open 7.30am – 6.00pm all year with the exception of Bank Holidays.

Parents Forum

We have a Parents Forum within the nursery. Please see the secure ‘parents area’ to find out further information, what we are currently discussing and our yearly planner.
