Your child is a unique individual. Our Montessori program recognizes the unique needs of all children as they progress through natural developmental stages. Maria Montessori developed an approach to teaching based on her extensive observations of children's natural needs and tendencies. It was her belief, as it is ours, that children learn by doing. Acorn Montessori's core program is based on developing the child's individual potential through the use of specifically designed materials in the prepared environment of the classroom.
Acorn Montessori provides students in preschool and kindergarten with a solid foundation in all academic areas and opportunities for becoming independent, self-motivated learners. By looking at the “whole child,” rather than children as a group of equally adept learners, our Montessori teachers are able to address the needs of each child and work with them to reach their fullest potential.
Acorn Montessori is co-located in the Wooden Cross Lutheran Church. Acorn Montessori is an independent entity and is not affiliated with the Church. We do not teach, practice or share the Lutheran faith. The church property however is used to directly benefit the children. The seven acre property is located in a very safe neighborhood and presents a park like setting with abundant wildlife.
