At pre school age, development and learning are extremely important for your child, with developing brains likely to take in and retain information at an impressive rate. Not only is this education a hugely important component, but being supported within a comfortable and welcoming environment can ensure that this stage prior to primary education is one of enjoyment and fun. We understand that as a parent, you will go into the process of selecting a pre school environment with some concern and intrigue, so let Little Acorns Day Nursery guide you through everything from the expertise of our staff, to the importance of health and welfare when your child is in our care.
Aside from the facilities themselves, and focusing in more on our staff who remain committed to improving and safety proofing our buildings, we maintain a family of friendly enhanced DBS checked employees. As well as providing a large group of welcoming childcare professionals, to ensure a watchful eye over each child, we appoint a dedicated key person for every little one passing through our doors. At pre school age, children can be particularly mischievous and inquisitive, which is precisely why we train our staff in everything from food preparation and first aid, to understanding of different health needs and disabilities.
At our Little Acorns Day Nursery sites, your child will have free access to both indoor and outdoor play areas (weather dependent of course!) as well as enjoying our ‘home corner’, which is dedicated to role plays, construction, creativity and learning about different cultures. Older children will also enjoy the many event days we oversee on our calendars, which include charity days, seasonal events and much more. There won’t be any boredom under our roof, with all manner of toys, games and activities to stimulate the mind and encourage physical exercise.
Child-proof as a matter of importance, we ensure that our rooms are safe and secure, with an assigned number of staff within each play room to make sure things stay that way. Loved by both the children and parents we work with, essential life skills are made fun at Little Acorns, with our qualified childcare professionals and top-quality facilities. We have even meticulously looked over the exterior of our nursery buildings, including the outdoor play areas we have designed with kids in mind.
Education and play are both highly important at pre school age, which has encouraged us further to integrate learning into our play routines. We provide books that are sure to interest the inquisitive mind, while we own a number of fun maths and science-based toys and apparatus. Come down and see for yourself! We would love to give you a tour of our nursery space.
