Grandma to Alexander & William

Lauren and Verity have taught my two grandsons Alexander 10 and William 4 for the past 4 years.   Alexander is Autistic and Lauren and her team were very efficient with supporting his condition especially in the holiday workshops which concerned me how he would cope in a new routine out of school.

I stayed for two hours on his first visit and was so impressed with the teachers natural talent and approach they have with the children they clearly love the kids and equally the children adore the teachers.  Alexander loves the workshops and we enjoyed as a family his performances in the living room of the gruffalo with our little comedian William.

Little Acorns is so efficiently run and that Lauren's team are a credit to her and I feel as a grandma utterly secure to leave my children with Little Acorns,I just wish we lived nearer so we could come in term time.  You cannot put a price on the care and tuition that children receive at Little Acorns not only is the true passion there from all of the teachers you won't find in many schools that your kids are being taught by professional experienced TV Actors like Lauren and Robert Shannon and West End star Verity.

Little Acorns isn’t a franchise and is a family run business where children thrive and your child matters.


We have been using Laura Mott for 2 years now and have always found her to be professional, fun, and excellent singing teacher for our daughter who is now aged 11. Under Laura's guidance and tuition, my daughter has maximised her potential and achieved distinctions in all of her singing exams. Laura has also led her to gold and bronze medal successes in festival singing competitions. I would thoroughly recommend Laura as a singing teacher.

Mummy to max aged 4.5

I finally found the most amazing drama class and best teacher for my 4.5yr old (then 3yr old) son. We had been to another class and both of us were really unhappy at the uncaring way he was told off for playing and "not listening"! Thankfully Lauren and little acorns came into our lives. My son has loved every class, excelled and developed his big imagination even more. Lauren, you are a true professional who cares about her students. We loved your classes and we miss you terribly!! Please move to the US!!!!


Samantha, mum to Charlotte aged 6

Can’t thank you enough for making our daughter’s 6th birthday party so lovely. Was one of the nicest parties we have had. Lauren was warm and caring and made my daughter feel very special.  My daughter and her friends still remember the dance routine they were taught and still practice it regularly! We also had lots of really nice comments from other parents about how much their children enjoyed it. Would highly recommend a Little Acorns party to take all the stress out of a little persons birthday party.

Ban, mum to Leila aged 7

My daughter has been involved with the Little Acorns Academy for three years (since she was 4 years old) as an extra-curricular activity to her schooling, which I consider it an extremely beneficial and rewarding programme for her. The weekly Street Dance and Drama classes that she has been attending always resulted in great boost in confidence, enjoyment and anticipation for the next weekly sessions.

It is very satisfying to have my daughter involved in the Little Acorns' programme of activities which promotes self-confidence, creativity, team work, awareness of presentation & speech and much more but most importantly having pride and enjoyment in what each child delivers.

What I particularly liked about the Little Acorn is their recognition of individual needs, strengths and skills and the efforts made to ensure that they are nurtured appropriately and satisfied to high standards.

My daughter's success at her Infant School has been recognised by her teachers who have attributed an element of it to her involvement in the Little Acorn programme.

Mrs Shannon and her team is a professional and experienced team and I would have no hesitation recommending them and the Little Acorns Academy to anyone.”

When I told Leila what I was doing, she asked me to type this for you as her own feedback from the time she spent with you (I've literally typed what she was saying...it's a little brief!!)

“Lauren is really nice and I really like how she runs the class and I also learnt lots of new things from her like signing, dancing, acting and I feel that I've improved lots. I like the classes because I have friends there and we all have fun.

Clea, mum to Sophie 11 and Emily 8

My daughters have been taught by Lauren since Reception & I can clearly see how her unique blend of creativity, talent & empathy has helped shape them into imaginative performers and confident learners. There is something magical about the environment that Lauren creates but she is also extremely well supported by an able team, particularly at the holiday workshops, which for my children are a highlight of any school break.

If my children had to choose just one extra-curricular activity, it would be at Little Acorns, because at Little Acorns, your child knows they are going to have, in the words of my eight year old, "the BEST time EVER!"  "Yeah it's cool Mum," agrees the eleven year old.

At Little Acorns, you know that your child really does matter.

Mum to Holly 6 and Daisy 10

Lauren and her little team at Little Acorns, has been totally amazing with my two girls. Holly and Daisy adore Lauren, and absolutely love taking part in the drama, dance and singing workshops, they never want to come home ! Little Acorns has made my girls confident in their abilities, and they both love being on stage now.

Laurens party's are also awesome, my girls have both hosted them and attended them, and love everything about them - they would go to one every week if they had the chance ! Thank you Lauren x

Carrie, mum to Farah age 11

Since she began school, Farah has been attending Little Acorns dance and drama classes and it has always been the thing she looks forward to most every week!  Lauren is a bit like a fairy godmother, kind and encouraging, and she has a wonderful manner with all children.  Lauren really brings out each child's personalities and hidden talents and they all adore her.

Farah loves Little Acorns  dance and drama classes, especially the holiday workshops and Lauren and the other staff members work really hard to ensure every child gets a chance to show what they can do, and this has given Farah so much confidence to perform in front of an audience.

We have so many lovely memories of the end of term performances and the workshop showcases, and I'm always so proud to see Farah perform.  With Lauren's support, Farah now has enough confidence to make up her own dance routines.
