Day Nursery in Eastleigh and Hedge End

At Little Acorns Day Nursery, our primary motivation is to guarantee the ongoing wellbeing, happiness and emotional nourishment of every child put into our care. We have built a holistic, warm and welcoming environment where every child’s needs are identified and catered to: developmental, emotional, educational. Our top priority is to ensure the safe and comforting environment necessary to bring out every child’s fullest potential.

At our Hedge End and Eastleigh locations, we work extremely hard to earn the trust of the parents who leave their children in our care. We are constantly vigilant and take all necessary measures to ensure the emotional and physical security of all children in our day nursery. When you choose Little Acorns Day Nursery, you can rest assured your child will find her or himself in a caring and nourishing haven.

We are hugely proud of our continued grading as ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

Support for busy parents

In the fast-paced, demanding working world of today, many career-oriented parents find it difficult to strike a balance between attentive child rearing and paying the bills or climbing the professional ladder – and that’s not to mention the plethora of non-work-related reasons to be strapped for time. As a parent or guardian, the challenge lies in finding and selecting a day nursery you are assured in and comfortable with – one that provides a stimulating and supportive environment, and one whose security is comprehensive and uncompromising. We are that day nursery, a distinguished centre with an experienced staff, warm and supportive facilities, with a slew of awards recognising our high standard of care. If you live or work around the Hedge End or Eastleigh area, feel free to pass by to give us a visit!
