Acorn Childcare UK is a registered charity run by a Management Committee, registered charity number 1090086.  As a charitable organisation, we collect no profit and re-invest all income within the running and improvements of our facilities and invest in our high quality staffing team.

Originally, in 1992, Acorn Childcare UK was set up as a nursery facility within the grounds of Headlands Primary School, Northampton.   We have approximately 200 children registered for care with us, from the ages of 3 months to 11 years.


At Acorn Childcare UK, we aim to provide local communities with high-quality childcare to all, regardless of race, sex, culture or special needs and disabilities.

We provide a secure and welcoming environment that creates the space and comfort needed to allow children to enjoy developing and growing in their own capabilities and confidence.


We encourage children’s social and emotional development within a caring and friendly environment.  We work to help build children’s sense of self-value and confidence.


We work to understand and meet the needs of each child on an individual basis whilst encouraging the children’s consideration of peer groups and appreciation of different cultures and backgrounds.


We encourage children’s physical and intellectual development, providing activities that strengthen and expand their capabilities within an enjoyable play setting.

We provide parents with clear information regarding their childs development , whilst protecting the privacy and security of other children and families.


We work to ensure that all staff are provided with equal access to further qualifications. We value each and every member of staff and their contribution to the childcare environment. We provide a safe and secure culture within our organisation for our staff as their well-being is our priority.  

At Acorn Childcare UK we employ a cook who offers a varied and healthy menu on a four week rota. We can cater for all dietary needs and are proud of our five star Food Hygiene rating.
