About Us

Little Acorns is run by the managers of Acorns and Oaks together with the trustees who are  volunteers who have an interest in the preschool; usually, but not exclusively, parents of children at Acorns/Oaks. The trustees oversee the running of the preschool and support staff. This ensures that families that use the setting are involved in any major decision making.

Our Annual General Meeting is held in October or November at which time trustees are re-elected and new members are elected. We are always looking for enthusiastic people to join us. If you are interested in joining the committee please let us know via the managers or our website/facebook page. 


One of the main roles of the trustees is fundraising.

Every year Little Acorns aims to organise a series of events to boost preschool funds. We an Easter Fayre, Autumn Fayre and a photo morning during the Autumn Term, as well as occasional sponsored events.

If you have any new ideas on how we can raise funds please let us know. Equally if you are able to donate any time or resources to help fundraising we would be very grateful to hear from you. This may include help with maintaining outdoor equipment, gardening, sponsoring events, donating items for raffles etc
