Acorn Childcare Centre - Stamford

We aim to provide the very best childcare possible for local families.  Dedicated staff provide a caring and safe environment which nurtures the development of children from babies through to pre-school four year olds.

We are available for full day care for babies from six weeks through to four year olds who are due to join school for the first time.  We have funded places for eligible two-year olds, and 15 or 30 hours funding for three to four year olds.  We appreciate that this is a complicated Government scheme, so just ask us if you are unsure how it works!

Our purpose-built facilities are designed around the needs of the children in each particular age range, with our rooms enjoying good access to outside play areas.  Our building is set in the grounds of the Malcolm Sargent Primary School and as such, our unique setting benefits not only from our unrestricted use of the extensive school facilities, but also allows us unparalleled links to help prepare children for starting primary school.

We work closely with the school, not only establishing excellent transition, but also in the provision of wrap-around childcare for school-aged pupils, both around the school day and in the school holidays.

If you would like more information about our provision, then please contact us with any queries that you may have.

Our staff would be delighted to meet with you and give you a guided tour.
