The Acorns British Style Nursery opened in September 2004 and
is based upon a joint Romanian/British partnership. The nursery
provides high quality full time or part time child care for children
between the ages of 18 months and 6 years old. All nationalities
are welcomed into the nursery. We aim to provide a range of stimulating
and exiting learning activities, preparing children for their first
years of formal schooling. Acorns helps children develop confidence
in their own abilities, an enquiring mind, respect for both themselves
and others, to learn to share and to communicate effectively. Our
curriculum is based upon the British Foundation Stage and children
learn through a variety of structured play based activities. Our
staff are fluent in English and provide a combination of experience
in early years education with teaching qualifications.
Acorns is open throughout the year, closing for 2 weeks at Christmas,
1 week at Easter and for the month of August.
Acorns British Style Nursery is managed and run by both experienced
mothers and qualified childcare professionals.
We believe that children can only develop to their full potential
when they feel at ease in their surroundings. To this end we aim
to provide a safe, stimulating and happy learning environment.
We base our child care provision and teaching on the British model
which focuses on developing the whole child and base our learning
programmes on what each individual child is able to do.
We acknowledge that each child brings with them their own experiences,
knowledge of home language and culture. We value these and we actively
promote an understanding of each other's backgrounds within the
nursery so that our children develop an open mind, preparing them
for life as international citizens in an ever-changing world.
We believe that young children are like sponges: soaking up knowledge
at every opportunity. English is therefore spoken all day, allowing
the children to become fully immersed in the language.
