The Acorn to Oak class is an eight-week program designed for infants and toddlers who are not enrolled in a Montessori program. A parent, grandparent, or caregiver is welcome to participate in the class, but we request that only one adult attends per class.

This program provides an opportunity for the adult to interact with the child as the teacher guides them through the child-directed process of learning. Children learn through hands-on experiences and the adults have a group discussion to learn about their children’s development and ask questions while the children have a supervised group snack. In addition to providing developmentally appropriate materials and positive social skills, grace and courtesy are modeled by the adults. Class may also include a group circle time with music and movement.

A short orientation meeting for parents only prior to the beginning of each session is listed below. At least one parent should attend.
