Headmistress’ Welcome

Since the Acorn first opened its doors over twenty years ago, its vision has been to provide a sanctuary in the heart of bustling Notting Hill for children and parents alike.

We like to think of the Acorn as a home from home. A safe place where your children can take their first steps into independence; and where you, their parents, can be supremely confident that they are cherished, secure, stimulated and, above all, happy along the way.

Our warm, caring and highly experienced staff understand the importance of nurturing strong roots in the young saplings in their care. Above all else, we encourage self-confidence, problem-solving and a love of learning, as core

skills in our pupils. We want our Acorn children to embrace the joy of childhood and we believe these are the foundations of a successful journey through school and beyond. Put simply, we are here to encourage each and every child to be the best they can be in every aspect of their lives, to help them develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Entrusting your child to a nursery school is a big decision. Those first few steps can be both exciting and overwhelming for parents and children alike. At the Acorn, we view the relationship between school and parents as a genuine partnership. We are always on hand to help you navigate the complicated landscape of education to find what works best for both you and your family.

I hope this website will provide you with a taste of our nursery school. However, the website is simply an introduction to life at the Acorn and I would encourage you to book a visit and join us for a tour. I hope you will be struck, as I was, by an overwhelming sense of warmth, support and comfort as you walk through the door, rather like coming home.
