How to Apply

We are registered by OFSTED to cater for up to 24 children aged 2,3 and 4 years old. Our usual intake occurs alongside the schools in September and January, but sometimes we can also consider children for a place after the Easter break, and depending on the availability at that time, this could either be the morning sessions, or afternoons.


From time to time, we do have places become available during the course of the term, due to changing circumstances and the place no longer being required, which we will allocate to the next child on our waiting list. As we operate a waiting list system, we would advise you to put your child's name down as soon as you are able, so that they do not miss out on any places that may become available.


You can complete our online form or download the waiting list application form here which you can return to us by post, hand or email to

We can never guarantee your child a place at Little Acorns, or guarantee particular days/sessions once a place has been agreed, but will try our best to accommodate your needs. When a place becomes available, we will contact you to make you the offer, and, if accepted, we will arrange a stay and play session for you and your child prior to them starting at the Pre-School.
