Profile: At Acorn Hill, we believe that play is the serious work of childhood and that learning by doing provides the foundation for critical thinking, problem solving, and a lifelong enthusiasm for knowledge. Our playground is nestled in the woods and is a quiet and peaceful oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The children spend most of the morning immersed in imaginative play under the thoughtful care of our dedicated teachers.

Even during the pandemic there is space and a place to run, balance, climb, and dig in the sandbox. The children enjoy puppet shows and stories, healthy snacks made at school, and rest under the trees. We enjoy all the seasons outdoors by dressing for the weather and moving.
