Acorns Day Nursery was opened in 1994, and is set within a three storey converted house and has use of three floors. The nursery can cater for 64 children from 0 – 5 years.

Acorns Day nursery is conveniently located on one of the main routes into Exeter. We have parking to the rear of the nursery for parents to use whilst dropping off and collecting their children.

We are open Monday to Fridays from 7.45am to 6.15pm and offer both full and part time places.

Our experienced and qualified staff aim to create an environment in which the children feel safe, happy and valued as individuals. The staff ensure that they provide a stimulating environment for the children in their care, so that they can grow and develop into happy individuals.

Our staff recruitment is based on the qualifications, experience, enthusiasm and care they show for children. All staff are checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB). We are registered and inspected by Ofsted and the Manager of the setting holds Early Years Professional (EYP) and Early Years Specialist in ‘Nurturing Environment’.

In our most recent Ofsted inspection in February 2014 we were judged as ‘GOOD’ with the contribution of the provision to the well-being of children as Outstanding.
