Acorn Preschool is a friendly, committee run preschool located at Dussindale Primary School. We offer sessional term-time care for children aged between 2 and 4 years. Acorn Preschool offers free-flow play for our children between our indoor and outdoor environments and we are passionate about delivering a high level of quality child-led play.

We are currently looking for Early Years Practitioners to join our bank of relief staff to enable a full-time member of staff to work as a 1:1 support.
