The pre-school benefits from staff that have been together a long time and work very effectively as a team.

Acorn uses the Early Years Foundation Stage to promote children’s well being and learning. All our learning is play based and this comes to an end in reception year of the primary school you may choose for your child.

DSCF8847Each child is unique and we work to this end, supporting children and their families in the things they like to do.
During the academic year, Acorn visits a local farm, has a sponsored walk and raises funds by holding two jumble sales a year.

The pre-school is situated in a dedicated premises which is behind the Lockerley and East Dean Village hall.

Safeguarding children is our top priority and all our members of staff and volunteers are CRB checked.

Being rural gives us the advantage of smaller numbers so we pride ourselves in having a good understanding of our children and their families. We try hard to replicate a home from home feel for our children so that parents can feel confident when they leave their children with us.

All prospective parents are welcome to come in and look round our school as this is what helps to make the decision where you would like your child to go.
