Last two council run nurseries have officially transferred to Acorn

We are pleased to announce that Milton Keynes Council has transferred their last two remaining council-run day nurseries, in Fullers Slade and Netherfield over to us.

The Rowans Day Nursery in Fullers Slade (now Acorn at Rowans) and Playzone Day Nursery in Netherfield (now Acorn at Hedgerows) are now officially open under the Acorn umbrella, complimenting the other 9 nurseries in Milton Keynes we already have. Like our nurseries in Kents Hill and Westcroft which also transferred to us from the council in 2012 and have since flourished we are confident both Rowans and Hedgerows will too.

We believe that having a cluster of nurseries in the local area provides an infrastructure that can support the nurseries to become financially sustainable and we look forward to engaging and building links with the local communities and residents. We are also ensuring that fully-funded places for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds will be continued, with priority given to local families, and we will be investing in the nurseries to enhance and develop the indoor and outdoor environments.
