Outdoor Space
Inside Space

Acorn's inside space is a selection of open plan rooms, allowing easy access to our range of excellent toys and resources.  Through the use of a partition the rooms are able to be separated to create smaller learning environments.


We also possess a fully fitted kitchen, allowing easy preparation of a range of healthy snacks.  Our kitchen also acts as an additional development area for cooking activities with the children.

Children have direct access to a large secure outside play space that is able to be divided into three separate areas.  We have a large decked area which has cover, providing shade during the summer months and shelter on wetter days.


The outdoor area also enjoys a large grass sloped area, which encourages physical development and exploration, and a soft play area with a playhouse and slides.



The Setting


Acorn Playgroup and Pre-School opened the doors to our new permanent home on the 16th April 2013.  Acorn is a community playgroup and pre-school, and operates from our own self-contained premises close to Welwyn village centre in Hertfordshire.  From our village location we are able to serve the local area including neighbouring villages and towns.  Serving: Welwyn; Oaklands; Digswell; Tewin; WGC; Datchworth; Woolmer Green and Knebworth.


Acorn boasts access to ample parking, being located adjacent to one of Welwyn Parish Council's car parks.  Whitehill is just a few minutes from the centre of Welwyn village and all of it's amenities.
