Acorn Nurseries is a group of British-managed, EYFS curriculum early learning centres for children aged 2 months to 4 years of age.


The vision of Acorn Nursery is to instil a love of learning in both our children and their families, and to provide a skill base to prepare our children to confidently meet the challenges of a diverse world.

What Makes Us the Best Nursery

We truly believe we provide some of the best nurseries in Doha and Al Khor.

No single nursery can meet the needs of all parents, as we all have differing priorities. However, all prospective parents should carefully consider the same key factors when choosing a nursery:

Welcoming environment

Our light-filled rooms and shaded outdoor play-spaces create a perfect environment for little ones to explore, learn and make new friends. All rooms are well resourced, using imported furniture and resources to create welcoming spaces that stimulate curiosity and inquiry. 

Outstanding staff

The qualifications, experience and personality of staff are critical to creating a quality nursery. At Acorn Nurseries we are very careful in selecting only the best staff, employing qualified class teachers supported by experienced teaching assistants. All staff undergo an induction programme and are regularly updated with professional development training.

Properly implemented EYFS curriculum

All our nurseries follow the Early Years Foundation Stage of the curriculum for England - the EYFS. This is a common claim, but in practice the term is widely misunderstood and often poorly implemented.

At Acorn Nurseries, a Lead Teacher is responsible for monitoring planning and delivery of the curriculum to ensure quality and consistency across all classes and between all nurseries.

Several of our senior staff have recent nursery management experience from the UK,  while many have worked in EYFS training and assessment. This ensures we remain up to date with current best practice, and have a strong framework in place to monitor standards and deliver a high quality curriculum to our students.


We presently have two locations:

  • Acorn Ain Khalid, behind Mesaimeer Health Centre / the Qatar Scientific Club and close to 01 Mall (see map)
  • Acorn Al Khor, located on the Barwa Shell Compound close to Al Khor Housing Community (see map)
