"I was a bit nervous at first at how my child would cope taking a taxi to get to Acorns but she has been doing it since her second day in reception class and is fine. She usually shares with other children which gives her company and this also keeps the cost down. I was impressed with how closely Acorns staff liaise with the taxi company and the record keeping around journeys." Parent comment reproduced with permission
