New Acorn Nursery opening soon at Central Milton Keynes YMCA

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Milton Keynes YMCA to provide a new 48 place nursery in Central Milton Keynes as part of their new building.  It’s a really exciting project, aiming to provide affordable, high quality early years care and education in the heart of the city centre.

The new YMCA building will be built on the site where the hostel and staff offices are currently located. It will include a nursery, café, shops, gym, dance studio, sports and community hall and income generated from these spaces will be used to fund the residential support programme.

This brand new nursery will open in early June 2020 and will provide high quality, affordable childcare and early years education for the local community.

If you would like to register your interest in a nursery place please email [email protected]  or contact the Nursery Manager Kirby on 07908 892257.

Acorn are looking for qualified and unqualified Childcare staff to work at the nursery, please enquire by emailing [email protected]
