The Acorn School is focused on providing excellent education and care for children and support for families. Equally as important are program elements designed to enhance staff development, retention, and satisfaction. It is our belief that continuity of care is one of the most vital aspects of early childhood education. While there are many child care centers that provide the “basics” of care, such as meals, naps, and supervision, this is not enough to stimulate a child’s intellectual and emotional growth. Children require supportive, committed, and bonded relationships with their caregivers in order to thrive and progress in their development.
