Here you can find out about how we run things at Acorn Preschool. We need your help to keep this organisation running as smoothly as possible!
If you would like a place for your child at our preschool, please make an appointment and we'll gladly take the time to explain everything you need to know. You can make an appointment by phone or by using our contact form. We look forward to meeting you!
It's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. For a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children from falling ill, children who are unwell must stay at home. Only when the sickness/diarrhoea has subsided for 48 hours should you return your child to the setting. If the disease is infectious, we'll need a doctor's note confirming that your child is no longer contagious.
We take steps to ensure that there are effective procedures in place to protect children from the unacceptable use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) equipment or exposure to inappropriate materials in the setting.
We would like to remind parents the importance of supervising children when online and installing the appropriate security and parental control software. We recommend ESET, their website is www.eset.co.uk
Online Learning Journey – Parents’ Guide
All children attending Acorn Preschool have a personal Learning Journey which records photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us with your permission, we will be making these on-line.
We use Tapestry, a system, which is hosted in the UK on secure servers. You will have secure access (via email address and password) to your child’s Learning Journey and, in addition to viewing our contributions, we encourage you to add to it by uploading photos and comments, or commenting on observations made by us.
