The Acorn School Kindergarten will be opening this academic year (date to be confirmed).

We are happy to announce that we are extending our provision to include children from age of 3 to 6 years. Currently, the school caters for children from 7 to 18 years so this new addition will allow for complete continuity of your child’s education.

Our beautiful new kindergarten places the emphasis on a balanced curriculum that weaves free creative play with a daily and weekly rhythm of craft activities that nurtures your child’s growing awareness of the world. Regular nature walks, cooking and painting allow for a holistic and caring experience that will provide a wholesome, firm foundation for their later formal, academic learning.

Our kindergarten will offer daily morning sessions which will  begin at 9:00 am and finish at 12:45 pm and include a healthy snack and a hot, nutritious lunch. We will also offer an afternoon session, from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, for those children who have attended that day’s morning session. The afternoon will include a healthy snack and will be play-based.

Times and Prices: 

 – Morning sessions* (9:00 am – 12:45 pm, including snack and hot lunch): £18

 – Afternoon, play-based session** (1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, including snack): £9

* Children must attend at least three sessions per week, so your child maintains continuity and benefits from the rhythm that is at the centre of our weekly kindergarten routine.

** Children may only attend the afternoon session if they have been present for the morning session.
