Dedicated to delivering the very best care and education, Zoe and her family lived above the original nursery whilst developing the business. Now almost 30 years on the Acorn seed has grown and boasts 11 nurseries, several out-of-school clubs, forest schools, a catering service and a professional training center.

Zoe says “I am extremely proud and flattered to be nominated for such a prestigious award”
