Excellent facilities

All our rooms are fully-equipped with basic amenities. We provide age appropriate toys for children and also have an outdoor play area for toddlers and preschool children. A two-course lunch and a two-course tea are provided by our nursery cook. There is also a light snack mid-morning and afternoon. We have a large kitchen, separate laundry and a Managers' office/ staff room located at the front of the building. If you have any queries, you're always welcome to speak to the Manager.

Childcare at its best

Our nursery is a member of the NDNA (National Day Nurseries Association) and the Haxby and New Earswick Local Foundation Stage Partnerships with links to the local children's centre. 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. 
Each child is individual, and at Little Acorns Day Nursery we recognise this. Children are encouraged to learn and play at their own pace. We offer a safe, caring, fun and stimulating environment in which children blossom from Little Acorns to Mighty Oaks.

Visit our nursery today

During your first visit, you need to visit the nursery and fill in a couple of forms with the child's key person. After your first visit, more visits will be encouraged, where your child will be left with the nursery staff on their own. These visits will carry on until your child has settled and you're comfortable leaving them here. You can come to our nursery anytime, and we also provide you with daily progress reports of your child. We're open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, except on bank holidays. Children up to 5 years old are welcome during holiday times, but spaces are limited.
