Who we are
Little Acorns is part of the Boxmoor & Warners End Neighbourhood Association, who are a registered charity and a non profit making organisation.The Association is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers who regularly meet up to discuss and action community and Pre-School matters.
The Pre-School is run by a team of fully qualified childcare professionals who each have a wealth of experience in the childcare sector.
We have our own self contained area within the Warners End Community Centre which is accessed by a completely separate entrance lobby to the side of the building. We have a secure outdoor area which we use to enhance the play opportunities for all our children, and this is used all year around to develop a variety of skills. Indoors we have two well equipped rooms which also offer a wide range of learning activities, together with our own kitchen area and toilets.
We also enjoy trips out in our local area, making use of the shops, recycling facilities and, of course, the park.
It is our Aim to :
Provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment in which children can learn through their play.
Enhance the development and learning of children under school age.
Increase children’s confidence and prepare them for the transition to Reception Class and then School.
Work within the New E.Y.F.S framework (2012) to ensure the quality of opportunity for all children and families.
Encourage children to be independent and have fun and friendship with other children and adults.
