The Acorn Nursery is a member of the Dukes Education family.

Dukes is a family of schools, teachers, learners, and parents connected by our pursuit of an extraordinary life for every member of our community.

Our philosophy is to support each individual to live with purpose, to encourage a love of learning, and to act as a team. All of this is underpinned by a quality standard that runs through everything we do.

We believe that education is a journey to be enjoyed and shared at every stage of life, unlocking extraordinary possibilities for every student.
