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 water play, story telling, singing, circle games, crafts, nature walks and gardening. Full Day students will rest indoors. Our mixed-age classes are for children ages 3½ to 6¼ as of June 1. Toilet mastery is required for all students.

Classes are limited to 16 children.

Please have health and permission forms submitted by March 15.

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.
