Team Structure

We aim for quality education

Little Acorns Day Nursery aims to provide high-quality childcare and nursery education in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment, giving priority to the development, needs and happiness of our children and their families.

The nursery believes that this quality can be achieved by working together in partnership with parents, carers and Ofsted, with our childcare and nursery education firmly following the four EYFS principles.

Our dedication to Continued Professional Development (CPD) has also enabled many practitioners to access training to support the setting in SENDCo, Language development, PSED (SEAD) and first aid.

At Little Acorns Day Nursery, each of our staff members has a designated role and differing responsibilities.
