Acorns Nursery

Our Acorns Nursery has had two previously OUTSTANDING Ofsted inspections as well as our most current Ofsted which remains OUTSTANDING!


The 'Acorn Playgroup' is currently merging with the school to become 'Acorns Nursery'. During the next year lots of alignment with school will take place ready for September 2019. 

COMING SOON: A brand new Acorn Nursery website. Keep checking back!


The Acorn Nursery offers sessional and full day care for children aged 2 years 0 months to 5 years 0 months. We are self-contained with two outdoor play areas and access to the most extensive grounds of any Primary School in Lancashire.

Children also have the opportunity to swim once a week in the on site swimming pool.


We are open Monday to Friday from 9.00 to 3.15. However, we also offer wrap around care, provided through our breakfast club and after school club facilities. 

Breakfast club starts at 7:45am at £5 including cereal or toast.

After school club is £6 including a healthy snack (Sometimes made by the children!) and finishes at 6:00pm. 

We are closed during school holidays.


We have a limited number of 30 hour places available but we are able to offer flexibility within this. 

If you would like to visit us, please get in touch.
