Sessions & Fees

We welcome children from their second birthday until they start school.

Opening Hours

Acorns Pre-school is open from 8.30am until 3pm Monday to Friday during term time.  Within our opening hours we offer flexible hours to meet the needs of parents while also ensuring the children are able to settle well in the Pre-school environment.


Our fees are £4.50 per hour for under 3’s and £4.00 per hour for over 3’s.  Fees are charged termly in advance.  As an optional extra your child can have a cooked lunch prepared from locally sourced produce.  This is an additional charge of £2.30 per meal payable weekly.

Free Entitlement for Three and Four Year Olds

Every child is entitled to 15 hours a week of free Nursery Education from the term after the child’s third birthday. More information is available at  The 15 hours can be split across two providers (three if one of those is with a specialised SEN provider).  The funding for this is provided by Wiltshire Council direct to the Pre-school.

Childcare Vouchers

Parents can also obtain help with childcare costs, including Pre-school fees, through childcare vouchers which are part of salary sacrifice schemes.  More information is available at  We accept vouchers from the following childcare voucher companies:
