Sports4tots Sessions – Fun sports sessions will take place every Friday for our pre-school children from 9.15am to 9.45am and 9.50am to 10.20am.  We are currently holding two sessions due to high numbers of children wanting to attend.  The cost is £3 per session.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Tesco for awarding us a grant of £3283 towards technological equipment and toys.  These will be used to benefit the children’s development in ICT as well as language and maths and to help to teach the children how to keep themselves safe online.

Our Core Values

At Little Acorns we believe that the three most important things that children need to learn and develop are:

  • Nurturing relationships with caring adults
  • An enabling environment which provides stimulation to learn and develop
  • The emotional security to develop independence.

The pre-school has been at Penponds School, Camborne, for almost twenty years. Since 2004 Little Acorns has been based in a purpose
built unit within the school grounds.

  • We are regulated  and inspected by Ofsted.
  • We care for up to 24 children per session aged from their second birthday to school age.
  • We are a registered charity
  • We receive funding from the Local Education Authority for 3-4 year old children.
  • We are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.
