The Acorn School for Early Childhood Development was established out of a desire to create a comprehensive, effective, and replicable model of a high quality early care and education program. 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.
We understand that parents are a child’s first and best teacher. Our role is to assist parents in this critical work by providing an environment that is supportive of each child and family. We also see the importance of providing classrooms where children are actively guided through Social and Emotional skill development. As children attain social and emotional competence, the stage is set for a lifetime of learning.
The Acorn School is a non-profit organization that serves a population of diverse socio-economic backgrounds. One way we provide support for our families is by offering scholarship assistance based on family size, income, and need. We welcome CCAP, and Family Financial Assistance with the support of the Temple Hoyne Buell Foundation and the Anshutz Foundation.
When a family enrolls at The Acorn School, we encourage them to become actively involved in our community. Parents are welcomed to volunteer in the classroom, serving on the Board of Directors, or other short-term interest committees. We are extremely fortunate to work with a group of parents who are so committed to their children, and to The Acorn School.
Thank you for taking the time to investigate The Acorn School in your search for high-quality childcare.
