Mighty Oaks Little Acorns Ltd opened in in September 2017 and is situated in a purposely designed building in the heart of Tredworth. We have three main rooms: Rising 2's room (Seedlings), Rising 3's room (Acorns) and our Pre-school room (Oaks). In addition to our three main rooms we also have a sleep room, two story rooms, a construction room and a sensory room. We have 3 fabulous secure outdoor areas that include growing areas, loose part play, den building and sensory walks we also have our forest school area.
Our exciting, vibrant and diverse nursery, is set in a beautiful, warm, welcoming, inner city setting. Each room follows our unique ethos of naturally resourced and high-quality open- ended materials, with an emphasis on outdoor education. At its heart lies a belief that each child deserves to be treated with dignity, possess a unique inner richness and potential, which we can help them unfold. To do so requires meaningful and authentic relationships that enable us to recognize a child’s potential, their qualities, strengths and interests.
Formerly Tredworth Children Centre, the setting retains a strong community ethic. Tredworth has up to 45 different communities that live in the area and as many as 50 languages are spoken. We work hard to represent the diversity in the community and often invite local artists, musicians etc to work with the children. We have an onsite Family Support Worker who works closely with families in a wide range of areas.
