The centerpiece of our day is play.

The carefree days of summer are alive and well at Acorn Hill! The centerpiece of our day is play—free, creative and child-led. Our summer is spent primarily outdoors, where children experience the beauty of our wooded playground, atop a hill adjacent to Sligo Creek Park. Each session includes lively stories, singing, circle games, crafts, painting, and gardening.

Our mixed-age class is for children ages 3½ to 6¼ as of June 1. Toilet mastery is required for all students. Classes are limited to 16 children.

Payment is required at the time of registration. For withdrawals up to four weeks before class starts, there is a 50% refund of class fee or deposit. All other withdrawals are non-refundable. No refunds or makeups for days missed. Payment arrangements can be made for children enrolled in both sessions. Contact the office for details. Registration is accepted up to two weeks before the session begins.

The health, safety, and wellness of children, families, and teachers are a top priority. We incorporate recommendations and requirements from the State of Maryland and the CDC on a daily basis. For more information, please review our COVID-19 Safety Measures.
