The mission of the Acorn School for Early Childhood Development is to provide high quality, accessible, early care and education programs, and to advocate for higher standards in the field of early childhood.
The essence of The Acorn School is primary caregiving. Primary caregiving provides continuity of care by matching children with teachers who remain with them from infancy through prekindergarten. Children enter the program as infants, toddlers, or preschoolers and are placed in small “clusters”of eight to ten children of similar age and development. The children shift classes together with their teachers each year when the oldest cluster graduates to Kindergarten. Our program is especially effective due to our low teacher/child ratios. The number of children in each teacher's care is often lower than the legal norm.
