Blog : Open House at the Acorn School

By Patrick Haigis | Oct 15, 2014 | in

The Acorn School is having its annual open house on Saturday, November 1 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. The event is a great opportunity for parents and children to come visit and learn what makes Acorn School so special.

The Acorn School, founded in 1975 by Rebecca Shepard, uses its beautiful surroundings to help forge a curriculum and philosophy aimed at stirring within their preschool and kindergarten students an appreciation for the natural world. Touting a diverse curriculum where finger painting and drawing meld seamlessly with Lego-building and sign language Acorn School has served as a beacon of early childhood education in the Seacoast for more than forty years.

Throughout the years Acorn has remained steadfast in its efforts to maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio, providing more one-on-one interaction, communication, and personal growth.

The philosophy at the Acorn School places firm emphasis on the process, rather than the product – where learning is an adventure more about the journey than the destination. From their comprehensive commitment to the 3 Rs – reduce, reuse, and recycle – to composting and maintaining a robust garden, Acorn’s green focus promises to be an educational staple for years to come.

So come by and see first hand what the Acorn School is all about!
