‘A kind caring and nurturing environment where children are valued as the individuals that they are. Thank you’ (parent survey July 2018)


What’s on:

We have had a lovely start to the Autumn Term; it is so lovely to have the children back in Little Acorns. I would like to thank you all for adapting so well to our new routines, your support as always is appreciated.

Autumn Backdrop – Wooden Table With Red Leaves

The current topic is ‘Autumn’. The children have been ever so busy making autumn wreaths, collecting autumn treasures, leaf printing, listening to autumn stories and learning new autumn songs. At this time of year it is lovely to gather autumn treasures and we would love for you to share photographs of your child collecting these on Tapestry.

As you are aware, our session times are slightly different at the moment, due to Covid. They will stay the same until further notice.

Morning sessions are:     8.45am-11.45am      Afternoon sessions are 12noon-3pm

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.
