Our programs strive to achieve a balance between free play and enrichment activities.

Our nursery and kindergarten programs strive to achieve a balance between free play and enrichment activities to encourage independence and the joy in joining together as a group. Our classes are primarily outdoors. We encourage natural talents and, for the young child, learning about the world through the gift of imitation, fantasy, and invention. Please visit our Pedagogy page for more information about Acorn Hill’s curriculum and educational philosophy for the young child.

The health, safety, and wellness of children, families, and teachers are a top priority, and we incorporate recommendations and requirements from the State of Maryland and the CDC.

Early Birds (8:30-9 am) and Extended Care (3-6 pm) are available for our 2022-23 Full Day programs. These programs meet 5 days/week.
