Welcome to Green Acorn

A school with a true heart and soul. Our programs incorporate dynamic classroom instruction with caring, qualified teachers and enriching indoor and outdoor play experiences. We know that these first experiences within a school setting will have a long lasting impact on children’s future learning.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We embrace a philosophy of education that combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging academic program that addresses the developmental needs of each child.

In addition to academics – social and emotional well-being also plays a significant role in a child’s development. Our curriculum, various activities, and daily experiences provide children with opportunities for a fun, enriching and exciting time while they make long lasting relationships. We create a positive environment which encourages children to explore their surroundings on a daily basis. Upon completion of our program, we believe that your child’s well-rounded experiences will provide them the necessary strengths for emotional, social, cognitive, gross/fine motor, and academic excellence.

Curriculum

Language Activities

Using language and communication with young children is crucial for their success in school and beyond. In Preschool language development kids learn to listen carefully, write well and articulate appropriately.

Environmental Activities

Environmental Education aims to increase knowledge about the key role forests play in sustaining life on our planet. The program encourages our children to reconnect and take care of their surroundings which in many places, has become lost over time.

Math Activities

Math activities are the perfect way to get your young learners excited about numbers and early math concepts. By combining art, crafts, games, and fun, our children enjoy exploring and building foundation math skills such as counting, sorting, adding, and sequencing.

Outdoor Activities

Learning doesn’t always have to happen a classroom. At Green Acorn we Venture outside with your kids and explore the outdoors this includes throwing and catching,balancing and more. Your kids will get some fresh air and get some exercise while fitting in some learning.

Science Activities

One of the ways we describe the study of science to small children is by saying we are “learning about the world and how it works.” Our science curriculum introduces your kids to measurements,weights,magnets,smell,and also germination.

We embrace a philosophy of education that combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging academic program that addresses the developmental needs of each child.

How is parent teacher communication handled?

Teachers and Administrators are always available to speak with parents about any concern, and a parent may request a meeting with their child’s teachers at any time. Dropping off or picking up can be a busy time for staff. We encourage you to make an appointment so that undivided attention may be given to you. Teachers will communicate regularly with parents about their child’s progress and milestones being reached. Additionally, each child is sent home with a form daily that communicates how the child enjoyed school, as well as the activities of the child’s day. Each year, teachers evaluate their students’ progress through assessments which accompany parent-teacher meetings

When and how are children skills evaluated?

Formal Assessments are conducted twice per term. These assessments not only help parents to understand where their child is in his or her development, but also what areas can be strengthened. We incorporate both informal and standardized assessments during the year, as well as noting the individuality of each child relative to his or her own progress. These assessments guide us, as educators, in developing our curriculum so that it matches the needs of the children in the class. Teachers’ observations of a child reflect the child’s growth and needs, both as an individual and as part of a group. This plays an important role in the day-to-day plans of the class.
