Preschool and Pre-K
Little Acorns Grow has a nurturing and extensive preschool program. Each classroom is broken down by age. Taking inspiration from Montessori, Reggio and Waldorf, our school is a blend of educational philosophies creating a fun, safe and encouraging learning environment for all. We believe in giving your child as much individual attention as possible and therefore we keep our class sizes small. Each preschool day include free play time, organized play and learning activities as well as enrichment classes focusing on sports, music, arts and hands-on science.
Our goal is to help each student grow into a happy, self-disciplined, confident person. Our safe and kind environment fosters the individual, enabling our students to live up to their highest potential. We are not affiliated with any specific group or religion.
Preschool – The Hedgehogs

A child’s introduction to learning should be a fun and engaging experience. By nature children are inquisitive and sponges for knowledge. In the Little Acorns Grow Hedgehog class our students’ natural curiosity is supported and nurtured. Our program and even our schedule is flexible to allow for fun and engaging activities that develop social skills and attention span.
Our experienced teachers are specifically trained to guide our students to learn new concepts in fun and engaging ways, with the result of well rounded students in all areas: social, physical and academic. We believe that understanding is the key to an enjoyable learning experience. To that end, we teach and encourage strong communication skills and take care to make sure our students understand what they are learning about in the world around them. Our successful teaching approach is based on learning step-by-step to accomplish independence and self-confidence in our students. Additionally we provide a wide range of hands-on experiences.
