About Us

Acorns Childcare (Masham) is a committee run group. We are a registered charity and member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance and National Day Nursery Association.

Acorns Pre-school is open every day 7.30am – 5.30pm during term time. We also offer a holiday club provision during most school holidays. We operate in a ground floor annex at the back of Mashamshire Community Office.

Little Acorns runs in a light, spacious room in the Methodist school room. A cafe area is available for parents to share a drink and snack time with their child.

There is a designated area for babies and there are opportunities for older children to take part in baking activities, messy play, pretend play, singing & music and much more.

A member of Acorns Pre-school will attend each session, supported by a representative of our management committee.


The first time you attend our group we will ask that you complete a basic registration form. This enables us to share information with you even if you do not attend each week.

A member of the Acorns Team will show you the facilities, introduce you to other families and answer any questions you may have.


£2 per child – £1 under 6mths

Drinks and snacks are provided; we ask that you do not bring your own food into the group. Hot drinks must be kept in café area to ensure all children stay safe.


If your child is not well please do not bring them along to the group. Anyone suffering from sickness and diarrhoea should not attend for 48hrs after the last episode.

‘Little Acorns’ is part of Acorns Pre-school (Masham)
