Welcome to Little Acorns Pre-School!
Based in the exceptionally large Village Hall in the quiet village of Eversley, we offer families a fun and stimulating environment, which encourages our children to explore, investigate and learn through play, making them happy, confident individuals.
To accommodate the needs of the children and their families as far as possible, we are flexible about attendance patterns. When places are offered, it is in consultation with parents and caregivers so that other family constraints and activities are taken into consideration.
We welcome all children from the local community, regardless of culture, ethnicity, religion, social group, family organisation or disability. The parents or caregivers of the children are all equally welcomed into the pre-school and their experience and expertise are valued by staff. The pre-school premises are reasonably accessible to wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.
Special consideration is given to children referred by outside agencies.
Little Acorns is privately owned and governed by Sandra Jensen who has overall responsibility for the pre-school.
Why choose Little Acorns?
Recent research has shown that the majority of our parents choose Little Acorns because of an ‘instinctive judgement’ whilst visiting the pre-school. We encourage parents to visit and see for themselves the facilities we offer, meet the staff team and get to know our children, to be sure that they are making the right choice.
Little Acorns Pre-school aims to:
- provide a stimulating environment where each child can develop their potential, whilst becoming independent and active learners;
- provide high quality care and education through play for children aged 2years 9 months to 5 years of age;
- work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;
- build each child's self-esteem together with mutual care and respect for others;
- value each child as an individual with its own needs and personality;
- add to the life and well-being of its local community;
- provide clear boundaries in terms of acceptable behaviour, develop children's moral understanding and use encouragement and praise as rewards for good behaviour;
- offer children and their parents a service, which promotes equality and values diversity, encouraging a positive attitude with respect towards racial origins, religions, differences of gender and disabilities.
Our Mission statement
At Little Acorns we believe that all young children have a right to the very best education and care in the early
years. Children attending Little Acorns flourish when they receive the best learning opportunities in a safe,
fun and caring environment.
We provide a dedicated, experienced and caring team of staff who treat children as unique individuals, ensuring that their social, physical and emotional needs are met. We support and guide the children in their play experiences ensuring that each child is helped to reach their full potential. We believe that this provides the basis for continued success.
Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)
The Government has asked all Local Authorities in the UK to publish, in one place, information about the services and provision they expect to be available in their area for children and young people from 0 to 25 who have Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND).
This is known as the Local Offer.
At Little Acorns we are committed to the inclusion of all children in our setting. We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our children and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and do our utmost to support these children.
Further information about our Local Offer can be found on the Hampshire County Council website and we will be adding this to our website soon.
