Open all year round, AKS Acorns Nursery is a vibrant and stimulating environment providing care and education for children from the age of two until they start school the September after their fourth birthday. Our outstanding provision offers the children a safe and happy place in which to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

The Nursery is divided into four sections, The Bees, The Ladybirds, The Butterflies and The Caterpillars.  Each section has their own dedicated space as well as taking advantage of the spacious accommodation both inside and out, where they can all learn together. Each child has a dedicated Key Person who monitors their progress and ensures that each child's specific needs are catered for.

A range of trips and visiting specialists enhance the children's learning further still and healthy school meals and snacks give them the energy they need to take advantage of all on offer.  Most children transfer from AKS Acorns Nursery to the Reception class, and as the Nursery is very much part of the Whole School, the transition is made easy with regular familiarisation visits and activities.  The Nursery children attend school assemblies each week.
