Welcome to Acorn Grove Nursery.
Acorn Grove nursery is a Pre-school Learning Alliance childcare service. The Alliance is a registered educational charity which provides flexible, affordable and quality childcare across England. Our nursery is located in Cheetham Hill, Manchester. We offer 65 Ofsted-registered places and were assessed as 'Good' by Ofsted in our last inspection in May 2015.
Our committed, friendly and well-qualified nursery team provides high quality care and learning opportunities for children aged between two and five years old. There is also some availability for older children up to eight years old in the school holidays.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) with a focus on learning through play. The team establish a culture of "in the moment" planning which is a modern approach to planning children's development. This helps us to ensure that every child feels involved, stimulated and happy in our care
We know that every child develops differently and at different times. To help us give the children in our care individual focus and attention, every child has a key person who best understands how to meet their individual needs and interests. We actively encourage parents to become involved in the life of the nursery.
We follow rigorous staff recruitment, selection and supervision procedures to ensure that anyone joining our team undertake relevant security checks including Disclosure and Barring Service disclosure, references and qualification checks. Parents are reassured knowing that child protection and safeguarding underpins every aspect of our practice and continues to remain a priority for us.
We are open from 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday, 51 weeks of the year, excluding bank holidays and three staff training days, usually one per term.
