We believe that ‘together we learn and grow’ at Little Acorns.
As we help the children learn and grow, we are also reflecting and learning how we can provide better or more enhanced learning experiences. This enables us to keep the children motivated to reach their next steps in learning.
Due to our small size and rural location we are able to provide unique learning opportunities for all our children based on their individual learning and development requirements.
All our staff work extremely hard to ensure children are kept motivated by providing unique learning opportunities based around the children’s interests and their styles of learning.
We have strong links with Leadenham Primary School and sometimes join the reception class for special learning opportunities or to further children’s learning when required. We are also committed to developing strong links with other local schools to ensure all the children in our care have a smooth transition into school.

Children having play opportunities outdoors is essential for their learning and development in all areas. There are so many learning opportunities in the natural outdoor environment and we embrace this within our Pre-school. Children will have a key person who will be supporting them through out their development and emotionally.
Children are offered opportunity to play outdoors throughout most of the day no matter what the weather. We have a well-structured outdoor area that supports all areas of learning available for the children to access throughout most of the day as and when they wish.
We also have use of the school grounds when we wish to use them so the children can access a large area to play games, ride bikes and scooters etc. There is also a woodland area within the school grounds which we can explore or use as an outdoor classroom.
