A little about us

At Acorns, our entire team is committed to creating a safe, stimulating and enjoyable environment, where every child is encouraged to learn and grow to reach their full potential.  We do all we can to support parents to ensure they feel that our nursery is as close to an extension of life at home as possible.

We carefully select the best staff for the Acorns team and many of them have been committed to us since we opened in April 2000.

Our aim is to work in close partnership with parents to develop an approach to caring for your child. We want to ensure every child is given the best opportunity to develop and as a result we provide tailored learning programmes for children of all ages. We maintain small groups of children across all age groups to ensure each child's individual needs can be accommodated.  

There are many reasons our parents trust us:

  • We have a friendly and happy nursery which offers each child a 'home from home' atmosphere
  • Our tailored learning programmes meet the needs of toddlers, pre-school and after-school children
  • We give all our children healthy, balanced meals and encourage physical exercise
  • Our teams are made up of the highest quality staff

Parents Testimonials

I love that the staff are so caring and considerate. They are always chatty and take care of your child to the highest standard. They always let you know if your wee one has any problems. Honestly so glad I brought my son to acorns as I found/find it hard to trust anyone with him and I have been able to trust them with everything. Defo recommend them as they do their all to help your wee ones and look after them to the best they can! Lovely lovely ladies which always helps as well!

Nicole Boyd

Our son Joshua has been at the daycare for nearly a year and he really enjoys it and loves the girls who look after him. We have found Acorns very helpful and we are very happy that Joshua has settled so well and this is down to the excellent way the girls play with and take care of him. Big thank you & keep up the good work!

Gavin Rowan

My daughter has gone to Acorns for 2 years and my son 6 months - both started when they just turned 1 and both easily settled in and have loved it ever since. They look forward to going to Acorns and love all of the girls. So great to be able to go to work and know that your kids are having fun, learning, making friends and being looked after so well. Can't recommend highly enough!
