About our Nursery

Since taking over the Cold Harbour pre-school lease of the former children’s centre we have been working extremely hard transforming it. Our day nursery is adjoined to an outdoor learning centre that builds on our popular Forest School provision and reputation for Forest School training.  

The nursery offers full and part-time care for up to 46 children from the age of four months to four years, and are open from 7.30am to 6.15pm, Monday to Friday, all year round. We are closed for all Bank Holidays, between Christmas and New Year, and four training days each year. This means that monthly fees are calculated over 49 weeks, so that you are not charged for any of our closure days.

Our menus have been carefully planned to be both seasonal and nutritionally balanced and tasty ensuring we have clean plates every time! Our cook prepares all the nursery meals and snacks onsite each day providing nutritionally balanced meals which are both healthy and appetising. We only use fresh, local, ethically sourced produce to create our delicious meals. We can accommodate most dietary requirements and have won several awards for our food.

Sammy and her team strive to make the nursery a place where positive and close relationships with children and parents are welcomed and valued. They believe it is important to create a home from home experience where children feel happy, safe and secure, and as a result, thrive within our nursery.

One of Acorn’s key priorities is outdoor play and learning, which is clearly evident at Cold Harbour, where the outdoor environment and play area are available to the children all day, every day.  We have very exciting plans for the outdoor area at the rear of the nursery, which we are currently working on. 

The site also hosts outdoor playschemes, bushcraft and forest school sessions, all year round. 

We accept funded two, three and four year olds, subject to eligibility.
