Acorn Hill brings about recognition and understanding of all the world’s cultures and religions. We are based on a belief that there is a spiritual dimension to the human being and to all of life. Waldorf families come from a broad spectrum of religious traditions and interests.
Education tends to focuses on the intellectual aspect of the human being and may ignore several other parts that are essential to our well-being. These include our life of feeling (emotions, aesthetics, and social sensitivity), our willpower (the ability to get things done), and our moral nature (being clear about right and wrong).
We believe that media and screen time hamper the development of the child’s imagination, therefore no electronic media of any kind is used in our curriculum. Instead, our pre-academic programs nurture imitative and imaginative play, social and physical activity, and an appreciation for beauty and nature. The programs endow children with a strong sense of self and a platform for success in later academic pursuits by building sound logical reasoning, mental capabilities and a reverence for life. We let children be children!
