The Mini Morning provides great opportunity to experience Waldorf early education first hand. Held on the first Saturday of most months, we open our classrooms for a taste of a typical day at Acorn Hill. You and your child can meet our teachers and enjoy a shortened experience of our daily rhythm, with open play, bread-making, circle and story, and outdoor play on our beautiful wooded playground. Teachers, parents and board members are on hand to answer questions and talk about our school. Please contact the school office to register. There is no charge for the Mini Morning.
