We officially opened Acorn at Cold Harbour at the weekend. The Open Day was the perfect opportunity to explore the new nursery and to meet our team and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting local families and members of the community.

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, which took place on Saturday. We had a bumper turn out which saw our CEO Zoe Raven, very aptly plant an Oak tree in the nursery grounds, with a hand from two very willing helpers!

One of our 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, we will be sharing the site with the Outdoor Learning Centre, which will be hosting outdoor playschemes, bushcraft and forest school sessions, all year round. We place a strong emphasis on outdoor learning and play, with all pre-school children enjoying weekly Forest School sessions with Acorns trained Forest leaders.

The nursery can accommodate 46 children ranging from four months to four years with places expected to go quickly. We are currently only taking children under two until the end of the year, but from January 2020 will start taking children over two and already have a growing registration list.
