Registration for September 2020 is now closed and we are full for September 2020, we are also unable to accept any further applications for the waiting list. Registration for September 2021 will open at 9.30am on Monday 11th January 2021.

Please be advised we are no longer operating a two year waiting list system, parents will only need apply in the year their child is due to start pre-school.  Siblings of children who have previously attended Acorns will still be entitled to a guaranteed place, providing they adhere to the registration criteria and deadlines.  Failure to apply on time may result in a place no longer being available.

Please Note: We care for children from the age of three to statutory school age. Therefore your child will need to be three already to be eligible to start.


We no longer have an intake in the spring term.

Priority for places, are given in the following order:

  1. Children staying on at Acorns from the previous year.

  2. Pre-school aged siblings of children who have previously, or currently attend Acorns, (who have applied on time).

  3. New pre-school aged applicants who are due to start school the following year; these will be prioritised according to the date the application was received.
