Our nursery and kindergarten programs strive to achieve a balance between free play and enrichment activities to facilitate growth and independence in a warm, nurturing, and primarily outdoor setting. We encourage natural talents and, for the young child, learning about the world through the gift of imitation, imagination 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 (3-5:30 pm) are available for our 2023-24 Full Day programs. These programs meet 5 days/week.
