In upsey down town,
The sky is in the sea,
the rabbits in the nest,
where the bird should be,
the rain falls up instead
of falling down,
Down in upsey down town

What's important to us

When you bring your child to Little Acorns, we don't want you to feel like you're putting them into daycare, we want you to feel like they're visiting their home away from home. Above anything else, our aim is to provide your child with the same care, affection and attention they would receive at home.

Our nurseries cater for 160 children across two facilities. Children are supported by dedicated, highly trained and committed staff, many of whom are parents themselves. This, combined with good Ofsted reports and a reputation for fun, excellence and warmth, has helped build an environment which allows children to develop in a deeply caring environment.

If you're interested in Little Acorns, why not organise an unhurried visit to one of our nurseries? You'll be pleased to know that we offer free unlimited settling in sessions, so you can feel assured that your child is happy and safe before returning to work.
"I strive to make Acorns an environment where staff & parents work together. We reguarly invite feedback to promote inclusive practices." - Dawn, Nursery Manager
