Little Acorns Private Day Nursery

10 Thornhill Road, (Off Albany Road), Derby DE22 3LX

Little Acorns Day Nursery in Derby is a lovely, small (36 place) day nursery with a very home from home feel, in a very quiet, residential area of Derby with very easy parking. Being conveniently located in easy reach of the Royal Derby Hospital the nursery has proven very popular with Doctors and nurses as well as those from Mickleover, Littleover, Heatherton Village and the Abbey ward.

The nursery’s homely feel and such friendly staff is reason that children have a tendency to settle extremely quickly (even those who perhaps haven’t before). Another pleasant surprise and something that is at the heart of what Little Acorns does is the nursery’s “No Quibble guarantee”. It is a clear demonstration of the nursery staff’s commitment to parental peace of mind.

You’ll want to be absolutely confident about your choice - so many different emotions all spinning around.

It is understood that you will want to have peace of mind, secure in the knowledge that your child’s needs and requirements are being met in a homely and caring environment. The nursery’s well trained, professional, friendly and enthusiastic staff are rightly extremely proud of gaining Ofsted Outstanding so many times.
