Who We Are

Our Vision

Magic Acorns is an early years development organisation striving to co-create ground-breaking work with, and for, our very youngest children.

Through collaborations with early years practitioners, artists and cultural organisations, we make extraordinary multi-sensory creations and training accessible to young children, artists, educators and the wider community, both in the UK and internationally

Magic Acorns is rooted in inclusion, offering spaces where children and families are cared for and nurtured through the arts. We are led by children’s imaginations and research, across multiple art forms - music, theatre, making, art and play. We create spaces physical and virtual - where connections can be made, and where truly experimental work can be created. 

Magic Acorns believes that our youngest children should be able to access the very best in arts and culture.

Magic Acorns encounters the world with children, learns what children can do from children and learns what Art can do by listening to children.

We create aesthetic work, which is made for – and with – children under five.

We forge connections and grow communities through the creation ofinclusive, enriching and compassionate spaces, for children, parents, artists and educators.

We foster collaboration between arts and cultural organisations, artists and educators.

We support participation, developing skills through training, experimentation, exploration and reflection.

We keep research at the heart of practice and develop deep thinking through theoretical approaches.
