About Acorn & Mighty Oaks


Our History

Acorn Pre-School has a long history, we were established in 1971 and sessions were held in the Baptist Church Hall, Bedford Road and then later in the Methodist Church Hall, Ampthill Road. In January 2006 the Pre-School committee were approached to build a new school which would enable us to improve our facilities as well as provide wrap around care to fit in with new government plans.

Our new premises officially opened on 26th April 2008. This is a purpose built, purpose designed building for our Pre-School and out of School clubs which has enabled us to offer even better Pre-School facilities to Shefford and the surrounding villages.

About Acorn Pre School

We offer Pre-School education for children aged 2 to 5. The maximum number of children in our pre-school is 26 per session, we are open from 9.05am to 3.15pm. We offer children the opportunity to learn through play in a stimulating and nurturing environment.
