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.
