"Excellence at Play"


Acacia Playgroup opened in 1955 and now operates from a large hall in a cricket pavilion in New Malden, Surrey. The hall backs directly onto the fenced cricket ground of the club and has a covered patio area. The group serves the local community and is near shops, bus and train routes.  To more accurately reflect the pre-school status, the playgroup officially changed it's name to Acacia Pre-school in March 2014.


Acacia Pre-school is:

  • Focussed on developing a child's social, emotional and physical skills through positive play.
  • Able to provide a large indoor area and an abundance of outdoor space.
  • OFSTED registered and follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (Following an organisational change to become a CIO, our new OFSTED registration 2594266 was effective from 9th June 2020, previous OFSTED registration number 131800)
  • A member of the Early Years Alliance
  • Staffed with qualified, caring and fully vetted personnel.
  • Dedicated to ensuring all children at the playgroup feel safe and secure as they learn to respect, participate and share with others.
  • A registered CIO (registered charity number 1186604).  The change to a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) took place on 9th June 2020 from unincorporated charity (registered charity number 1029705)

The pre-school provides

  • Daily sessional (9am-12pm or 9am-3pm) term-time care for children aged 2.5 years to 4 years 10 month.
  • Children aged 2 who are entitled to funded pre-school education are accepted the term after their second birthday. See here for more information.
