Would you like to join us? 

We’d love to welcome you! At Little Acorns, we welcome children from all sections of the local community and we cater for children between the ages of 2½ and 4¼ years. 

Check our news pages for any upcoming open events we are holding.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to call and speak to Mel Armstrong the Manager on 01296 625787.

We closely follow the three school terms – Autumn, Spring and Summer – and we admit children at the start of each of these terms. Your child will usually join us at the start of the term after they become 2½, and they can stay with us until the end of the term in which they have their 4th birthday.

Children usually start with two sessions per week when they are 2½, though we can provide more.  Children under three may attend all day if this has been discussed with the kindergarten manager and it is agreed to be appropriate for the child.  Each term you will be given an opportunity to increase the number of sessions your child attends.

We charge a £20.00 refundable administration deposit on acceptance of a place. Our Over 3s (and some 2 year olds if eligible) can benefit from Local Authority Universal Funding up to a maximum of 15 hours per week.  You may be eligible for 15 Extended hours which would equate to 30 hours of funding per week (see links below).  Outside of that funding, our charge is £5.50 per  hour.


We offer a variety of methods of payment of fees including vouchers.  This can be discussed further upon application.

We are unable to accept applications online. Please request a brochure/registration form by:-

If you prefer, you can pick up a paper copy of the application form and brochure direct from us in person at the Kindergarten!

If you would like to arrange a visit please give us a call to organise a suitable time.
