The Acorns Day Nursery

Within the grounds of St Stephens Junior School, here at Acorns Day Nursery we offer high quality care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Your child will be cared for in our purpose-built environment which is designed to support children’s individual learning. Our environment is secure, comfortable and stimulating with 2 enclosed gardens and access to the school grounds and facilities. Our environment plays a huge part in the children’s learning, we offer continuous provision enabling the children to make choices about what they would like to do alongside planned activities taking place throughout the day both indoors and outdoors, helping the children to learn via the 3 characteristics of learning. Our secure outdoor environment is an extension of indoors, offering a variety of play experiences which support learning and development. We free flow between indoors and outdoors so that your child can choose to be outside for periods of the day if they wish, allowing for individual learning styles to be met.

Nursery Aim

In partnership with parents and carers we aim to encourage and support children to explore and discover the fascinating world around them, by providing them with a variety of rich, challenging, age appropriate activities to scaffold children learning and development.


Here at Acorns Day Nursery we are passionate about childcare and want to make each child’s and families time at nursery as special and unique as they are, giving them the confidence and experiences that will help them on their journey to school. Following the EYFS Framework and embracing the three characteristics of learning.


Quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good
