  • Like all providers of pre-school care and development, Little Acorns is assessed by Ofsted and our local authorities on a regular basis.
  • As we also provide food and drink for our children, our food hygiene is also regularly assessed.
  • Pre-school providers also have to undertake and fully report on their own internal evaluations, called ‘SEFS’.
