Little Acorns' mission is to promote children's learning through developmentally appropriate planned and supervised play,while providing a safe, nurturing environment for children in our care.
Little Acorns recognizes the value of children's relationships with adults who are able to convey love, understanding, respect and commitment to children's well being. Children learn in many ways; for young children, exploratory play is the primary vehicle for learning. Little Acorns serves as a resource for learning about the physical world, social skills, emotional expression and cooperation. To achieve these goals, our experienced and skilled staff work to create an enriched and stimulating environment for children, providing the settings, materials and support with which learning is facilitated. We seek to foster social skills, receptive and expressive language skills, school readiness, gross-motor and fine-motor coordination and creativity.
Little Acorns is licensed by the Maryland Department of Human Resources and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We serve infants with full-time care, toddlers and preschoolers with full- and part-time care, and provide before-and-after school care to elementary school children.
We accommodate disabled children whenever possible. With an international enrollment and staff, Little Acorns values diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion or national origin.
