- Acorn School is a special school in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire, where young children develop and learn together in an atmosphere that is consistent, encouraging, and cheerful.
- Founded in 1972, this non-profit, play-based preschool and kindergarten is located in Stratham, NH in beautiful and natural surroundings.
- Pre-K and kindergarten programs are offered for children ages three through six.
- As a school for childhood, we recognize that this time is a short but significant period in life when trust, curiosity, and emotion are spontaneous and expressed with exuberance and confidence.
- At Acorn, as much time and emphasis is placed on your child's social, emotional, and physical development as on his/her intellectual development.
- The curriculum and warm, friendly environment stimulate and challenge all aspects of your child as s/he becomes involved in learning.
- The whole child is considered and planned for in our everyday interactions.
- When your child is comfortable, self-confident, and developmentally ready, s/he is able to perform and succeed to his/her potential.
