We are dedicated to helping your child learn and interact

Little Acorns Day Nursery opened in August 1998, located in the Joseph Rowntree Hartrigg Oaks complex, New Earswick. The nursery manager, Tina Heard has been here since July 1998, and bought the nursery in August 2013. Several staff have also worked here for 10 years or more.

The Nursery is registered for 49 children. We have four different age groups/rooms, these are:

  • Little Acorns - Baby room
  • Seedlings - Toddler room
  • Young Oaks - 2-3 room
  • Mighty Oaks - Pre school room

We can offer the Early Years' Education (EYF) funded places for 3 to 5 year olds and also offer some 2 year old funded places.

The nursery is a member of the NDNA (National Day Nurseries Association) and the Haxby and New Earwick Local Foundation Stage Partnerships with links to the local children's centre.

Each child is individual and at Little Acorns we recognise this. Children are encouraged to learn and play at their own pace. We offer a safe, caring, fun and educational environment in which children blossom from Little Acorns to Mighty Oaks.
