About us


Committed To Our Vision

We are committed to providing a caring and stimulating environment for children to thrive and develop in. Throughout our 4 Clubs (Breakfast, Early Entitlement | Playgroup, Wraparound and Afterschool) children of all ages are cared for and are encouraged to engage in activities individually and in a group.

We enjoy outside play where possible (and weather permitting) but also have a vast range of toys and crafts to engage and excite the children during their time with us.

  • Breakfast Club opens at 7:45am and children are delivered to their classroom ready for the school day around 8:55am.
  • Started in January 2023, Little Acorns now offers an Early Entitlement combined with a Playgroup session. Children are dropped off with us at 9am and collected around 11:25am by parents/guardians or childminders.

  • Little Acorns Wraparound Care starts when the Nursery class children are collected from the end of their school day which is around 11:30am. Little Acorns care for the children until 3pm when they can be collected by their parent/guardians or childminders.

  • Afterschool Club starts when the children are collected from their classrooms shortly before the end of the school day. The Afterschool Club then operates until 5.55pm or until a time that parents/guardians or childminders can collect the children.

Our Set Up

Kinnerton Little Acorns is a Charity Incorporated Organisation (a CIO for short) based within the grounds of Ysgol Derwen. Kinnerton Little Acorns is managed on a day-to-day basis by our Admin Manager, Kayleigh Ho and our Childcare Leads, Carol Rogan and Bethan Waite. As a CIO, Kinnerton Little Acorns is run by a Committee who oversee the running of the club and to ensure it’s best interests going forward.

Kinnerton Little Acorns is self-funding and runs independently of Ysgol Derwen. We use our fees to pay our staff, meet our running cost and any surplus is used to enhance the experience of our children.
