The carefree summer days of childhood are alive and well at Acorn Hill. The centerpiece of our morning is play – free, creative and unstructured play, indoors and outdoors – the true work, joy and developmental training ground of young children.
Outdoors, children will experience the beauty of our wooded playground, atop a hill adjacent to Sligo Creek Park. Sandcastles, complete with moats and water; tiny boats made of bark or leaves; or bubbles, iridescent in their airy journeys, are among the children’s playthings. Indoors, our teachers provide a rhythm of activities designed to bring balance to a child’s day, and a wealth of natural materials to give wings to the imagination. Our week includes lively stories and puppet shows, singing and circle games, crafts, painting, gardening and baking or cooking.
Our summer program is taught by teachers who are certified Waldorf early childhood educators. It is open to children who are between the ages of 3 years, 5 months and 6 years, 3 months as of May 31. Children must be fully toilet trained. Class size is 16 children with 2 teachers. Children will stay for lunch and need to bring a lunch from home. Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Confirmation will be sent upon receipt. If we accept your child and you withdraw him or her later, we will refund all but $50.00. There will be no refunds for days missed by a child.
