Reggio Emilia & Hygge Inspired

Inspired by Reggio Emilia, Little Acorns uses these principles alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage to support our children.  


We aim to provide your child with the best possible start to their early years education, helping them to fulfil their potential in a healthy, safe and stimulating environment where children know they are valued and respected and they can develop into independent, confident individuals. We believe that a child’s introduction to school must be a supremely happy one where fun and learning go hand in hand. 

We are based on the Icknield Walk First School site in Royston , Hertfordshire.  We have our own room with access to a lovely garden and nature space.  Our building and garden has disable access. 

Children can join us from their 2nd Birthday and stay until they turn 4 years old.  


For those who are curious about the world

The Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education views young children as individuals who are curious about their world and have the powerful potential to learn from all that surrounds them.
