The Little Acorns nursery school motto is "mighty oaks from little acorns grow". A new concept of education for a world moving forward. 
Little Acorns is a small, private nursery with an english-native professional team dedicated to providing a safe, secure and welcoming environment for children 12 months to 6 years old. The goal is to help children develop self-esteem and to encourage their inspiration and motivation for the future, through language and technology.

Little Acorns offers the opportunity to follow the system established by the British Curriculum in all areas of learning. It has a highly qualified team of native speakers, with years of experience teaching the British curriculum schools both in England and in Spain. The technological aspect is key, as Little Acorns is a pioneer in Spain in the use of iPads from 12 months old.
