Press and Testimonials

The only education you need in life is Acorn and Oxford’ to quote Lord Waldegrave, whose four children attended Britain’s most exclusive kindergarten. Though getting a place at Oxford is easy by comparison. ‘We accept registration from the moment of birth,’ Acorn tells us. Note ‘the moment’ and act accordingly. Alumni famously include baby Jaggers, Paxmans et al, but a self-declared ‘normal’ mum says: ‘Don’t let that scare you off – it’s a million miles from being full of spoilt, rock-stars’ kids.’ The reality is that Acorn is actually ‘very intimate and relaxed’. Supercharged staff ensure their pupils effortlessly scale the apex of London preps. Outdoor space is generous by W11 standards. Inside is ‘enchanted and cosy’ and feels ‘like a village school’, say our moles. What makes Acorn so unique is the focus on the families who attend.

The teachers are great and always look for opportunities to boost children’s self-confidence.

“My husband and I have been incredibly impressed with The Acorn nursery. The staff have shown nothing but professionalism, kindness and warmth. From our daughter’s first day, she was given such a sincere welcome by all the staff and we could see that not only was our daughter in safe hands, but she was in an environment that would nurture her, help her to achieve and also have fun. The classrooms are lively and wall displays are kept up to date and refreshed. Creativity is important to us and you can clearly see that the staff are not afraid to get messy with the children and that they are given creative freedoms with Arts and Crafts, music and song and dance. This is what every nursery should be striving for.” – Anonymous
