We are delighted to announce our new nursery in West Bletchley will be opening on Friday 1st November. Initially we will only be taking children under two (until the end of the year) and from January 2020 we will start taking children over two.
Since taking over the Cold Harbour pre-school lease of the former children’s centre we have been working extremely hard transforming it ready for our grand opening.
The new provision will be a 45 place day nursery combined with an outdoor learning centre, building on our popular Forest School provision and reputation for Forest School training.  This will include an outdoor holiday playscheme which will operate in the school holidays.  

If you would like to reserve a place or book a show-around please contact: [email protected]

If you would prefer to pop in we are holding an open day on Saturday November 16th between 11am  - 2pm.

We expect places to fill up quickly so please book early to avoid disappointment!

Our new nursery at Cold Harbour will provide full day care and sessional places for babies, toddlers and children from four months to four years of age, and we will be accepting funded two, three and four year olds, subject to eligibility.

All our Acorn nurseries run along very similar lines in terms of policies and practice, so you are very welcome to visit any of our other nurseries locally to see how they operate and to meet members of the Acorn team.  The manager and some of the other Cold Harbour staff team will be relocating from other Acorn nurseries, and further details of who will be working there will be available nearer to the time when recruitment has been completed. 

One of Acorn’s key priorities is outdoor play and learning, and this will be clearly evident at Cold Harbour, where the outdoor environment and play area will be available to the children all day, every day.  We have very exciting plans for the outdoor area at the rear of the nursery, and the nursery will be sharing the site with the Outdoor Learning Centre, which will be hosting outdoor playschemes, bushcraft and forest school sessions, all year round. 

Funded places will not be available until January 2020. We take the settling-in process very seriously, and do not like to rush it, so we will need plenty of time to settle our new children into nursery life, a few at a time.  If you need a place before the nursery is ready, we recommend that you book into one of our other MK nurseries (there are 7 to choose from) and we can then arrange a smooth transfer for your child when the Cold Harbour nursery is ready.
