Acorns (FS1 & FS2)

Welcome to Acorns!

Our team of passionate Early Years professionals are excited to welcome the newest members of #teamRedwood to our    teacher-led nursery provision. 

We strive for excellence in the Early Years and this is reflected in our indoor and outdoor provision, pedagogy and ethos. 

We demonstrate our values of Achievement, Excellence and Opportunities by:

  • Encouraging all our children to achieve their very best by meeting their individual needs
  • Ensuring the best quality resources and learning environments are available to all
  • Engaging in as many wider opportunities as we possibly can such as Forest School Fridays

A copy of the New Starters' Handbook is available below - please also remember to sign up to Class Dojo to see the amazing work Acorns are completing.
