Warm & Welcoming Toddlers Nursery in Hedge End & Eastleigh

We provide top-notch care for toddlers, encouraging play, stimulation and learning in equal measure. Our programme strikes the perfect balance between free-form and structured play, encouraging independence and socialisation while cultivating personal development and growth.

Whether your toddler is progressing from our baby room or coming to Little Acorns for the first time, they’ll adore all the fun activities awaiting them. There’s lots of time for digging, climbing, being outside, growing vegetables and baking cakes for birthdays.

A home away from home for adventurous youngsters

Your toddler can decide if they’d like to play in or out with our free flow play areas. Your child will still have their key person close, watching out for them and there to offer support and guidance as needed.

Learning about the world

We love the outdoors and encourage all our little acorns to learn about the environment. Not only can your little ones help to grow vegetables but they’ll get to sample them all in the delicious food prepared by our cook.
