Booking for summer club will open on Wednesday 26th May. We are limited to places this year, so please ensure you book early by logging into your Magic Booking account.



Inset Sessions
We are running club on the Walton Oak inset days of Monday - Wednesday 19th - 21st July. These sessions will be from 8.3am - 5.30pm at a cost of £25. We have 16 places each day.


And finally ...........
This will be our last ever holiday club. You may be aware that Acorns rents the space we use from the school with a renewable licence. When the school joined the Lumen Trust, they took on the license and they have now decided they would like to provide their own wraparound care. Sadly, we have been unable to find alternative suitable accommodation and have no other option but to close our doors.


We have had an absolutely amazing time with your children providing care through the holidays and term time. They have brought us fun and laughter over the years, and we'd like to thank you all for your trust in allowing us to care for them. They are the best!

Attention all supporters of Acorns!!

We are excited to inform you that Acorns is now part of the Elmbridge Community Lottery Scheme! This is a weekly lottery that supports good causes within Elmbridge and has a top prize of £25,000!

If you would like to purchase lottery tickets and support us, that would be great and we would very much appreciate it. 50% of all ticket purchases come directly to the club and you have the opportunity to win not only cash prizes but short breaks and other items in the weekly draw. A further 10% of ticket sales go to other causes that benefit residents in Elmbridge.

All profits to Acorns from the sale of lottery tickets will go towards purchasing items for the children, who will have a say in what the money is spent on. You don't have to live in Elmbridge to buy tickets, so feel free to let friends and family know about this as well.

To buy your lottery tickets, please click here. Good luck!

Please see the files below for our Annual Report to Parents for the year ending March 2020.

As you will see we had an exciting year, and my thanks go as always to our incredible team. Our committee, who give up their time to attend meetings and assist in other ways, our staff who are just amazing, the children who make it a joy for our playworkers to come to work every day and of course our parents whose support is fantastic. Financially too, the year was improved upon the previous year.

This current year will be totally different, but we are pleased to be open once again, and sincerely hope that we will be able to increase our numbers soon, but await the governments decision. With Covid numbers on the rise again and the threat of a second wave, this may be further away than we would like. Financially too, this will be a difficult year for us. Luckily we have a backstop and were successful in applying for a Bounce Back Loan. When everything has settled we will be able to calculate the best way forward with regards to repayment of the loan and the use of the backstop.

October club will be running this year for two bubbles of 15 children. At the moment we are arranging staff and deciding if we will be able to include children from other schools. Booking will be by email only, and preference will be given to parents requiring all 4 days. As soon as we have completed the setup, we will email you with booking information.

As always, if you have any queries, please email us.

Kind regards
