Little Acorns @ Thorncombe St Mary’s


Our integrated nursery provision provides high quality learning experiences from the age of 2 in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment. Our small setting offers a nurturing ‘family feel’ and the dedicated Early Years area benefits from access to our large outdoor space and school facilities. We  believe the early years are crucially important and our highly qualified and experienced staff will work with you to enable your children to flourish and develop their abilities.

We would be thrilled to share the start of your child’s learning journey and currently have spaces available.

Funded hours are available.
