“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.”
- Maria Montessori
The mission of Little Acorn Preschool is to provide your child a safe, stimulating and comfortable prepared environment to learn what the hands, heart and mind desires, while naturally discovering what makes him or her unique. We cultivate children’s character by developing their intellect and spirit through practical work, natural play, and the creative arts. We will nurture our young children to become capable, proactive and confident human beings with social grace and a peaceful mind-set.
We also believe in the deep commitment and dedication of our Little Acorn Preschool community, which is made up of our school children, parents, and staff and all are vital in the fulfillment of this mission.
Our curriculum is inspired by the Montessori Philosophy which will lay the foundation for a genuine enthusiasm for knowledge and personal growth.
At Little Acorn Preschool, special care is taken to create an environment that is beautiful, harmonious and secure. We follow the circle of the year through music, yoga, storytelling, baking, mindfulness, poetry, art and seasonal tasks. The children’s imagination unfolds in play with simple, natural playthings and furnishings. A respect for the environment and “mother earth” will be fostered with hands-on discovery and appreciation for seasonal offerings. A secure daily and weekly rhythm with caring, loving and supportive adults will encourage children to flourish and grow strong and confident.
