Welcome to Acorns Preschool


Only 5 mins from Chippenham, Acorns Preschool in Kington St Michael provides excellent childcare for 2-5 year olds in a safe, relaxed, homely environment right at the heart of this beautiful village. Started in 1972, we are a non-profit making charitable organisation run by a parent/staff committee. Our primary focus, therefore, is to ensure the children joining us receive the very best preschool experience – bursting with friendship, fun and learning – whilst supported by our caring, loyal and committed staff.

What will your child do each day?

They’ll laugh out loud, play, learn, explore, dance, sing, run, climb, bake, paint, build … and grow! And they’ll do all this hand-in-hand with new friends 🙂

In addition to our fun packed indoor/outdoor sessions, we also invite children to join us at Woodpecker Outdoor Adventures (Monday afternoon) where they will explore nature all year round in the wonderful wild gardens and woods of The Old Rectory, and at Squirrels (Thursday afternoon), where we help to prepare the older children with their transition to school.

“The children we receive from Acorns are well prepared for their first year at school” Miss T Cornelius, Headteacher, Kington St Michael CE Primary School

We are open 5 days a week (term-time). Please see session info.
