Here at Little Acorns Grow we value small class sizes and individual learning plans. We view our students as unique individuals and is therefore able to offer a Montessori style mixed-aged class. The teacher is able to focus on teaching each child according to his or her own strengths.

Because of this healthy learning approach and the small class sizes, the students are able to learn at their own rate. This gives the teacher the opportunity to challenge more advanced students and assist students who may struggle, while still making sure all core units are being taught and accomplished.

Our students develop a sense of family with their classmates. They become a “family of learners” who support and care for each other, choosing to cooperate rather than compete. The older students have the opportunity to serve as mentors and to take leadership roles.

We also invite the students to take charge of their learning, by making choices at activity centers and with project work. This sense of “ownership” and self-direction is the foundation for life-long learning.

We balance literacy, math, science and social studies to create a fun and exciting curriculum our students love.
