We are proud of the high ratio of adults to children in our group. This ensures individual attention to the needs and development of each child.
Acorns is a happy place to work, and we have a high staff retention rate for our industry. We also have a number of staff who have been with us for more than 10 years – giving continuity to families who have seen several siblings come through Acorns.
