What do parents and former students think of our school?

  • All three of my children have attended Little Acorns and I would definitely recommend the preschool to any parent.
    - Becky V-E
  • "For us, Little Acorns provided the best preschool experience we could have hoped for...it is a strong start for those who are becoming the Mighty Oaks of tomorrow."
    - Russell W.
  • Little Acorns is truly child-centered and that is very important to your child's development, especially when they are preschool age.   When my son attended there, the love for all children shone through in so many things at Little Acorns--from the child-sized environment (including the toilets) to the genuine interest of Mrs. King in saw the little pupils as individuals.  My son still fondly remembers the song that taught him all the continents, now that he is in high school; I think it is because it helped him feel someone besides his parents realized he was capable at that age of understanding the concept of a global world and wanted to help him with his curiosity for such 'complicated' matters!
