The Little Acorns Pre-School,  St Lukes Church Hall, Gloucester Avenue, 


Essex CM2 9LG


A newsletter is produced every half term which provides details of the themes to be covered, inviting children to bring in objects from home related to the theme or the letter/number of the week which is displayed in the lobby. 

This newsletter, together with the notice board, keeps parents informed of all forthcoming events, if you have any queries or suggestions please inform a member of staff  who will be pleased to assist.
In the unlikely circumstances that a parent may wish to complain about any aspect of the Pre-School’s handling of the children, the Complaints Policy will be adopted.

Parental Involvement

As a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, The Little Acorns Pre-school recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children.  All the staff see themselves as partners in providing care and education for your child. There are many ways in which parents take part in making the pre-school a welcoming and stimulating place for children and parents, such as:

  • exchanging knowledge about their children's needs, activities, interests and progress with the staff.
  • helping during sessions of the pre-school.  If a parent helps at a session, they will be entitled to receive credit for half the cost of that session.
  • sharing their own special interests with the children being part of the management committee of the pre-school.
  • taking part in events and informal discussions regarding the pre-school.
  • joining in community activities in which the pre-school takes part.
  • building friendships with other parents in the pre-school.
