The Little Acorn Day School is located inside the former North Mercer Junior High campus on 40th Street. This…More pre-school follows a play-based curriculum from a combination of influences, including Howard Gardner, Reggio Emilia, Jean Piaget and Montessori.
A developmentally appropriate practice of phonics, basic math, reading, science, professional art instruction, music and movement are emphasized. Teachers stay with the same children year to year, mix age ranges in each class, and allow siblings to remain together.
A large, fenced outdoor play area with various play structures and swings allow children a safe, supervised environment to develop coordination, balance and social skills. Family discounts are available, and it is recommended to submit an application as early as possible as there is often a waiting list.
