Little Acorn Academy offers a welcoming, stimulating environment that cultivates your child’s independence, self-esteem and social & academic potential, with an individualized curriculum that will lay the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

Nest & Hedgehogs – Infants (Ages 6 weeks – 18 months)

At Little Acorn Academy, we believe in fostering a nurturing environment for every child, right from the very start. Our large open classroom provides ample space for exploration and creativity, creating a vibrant setting for our littlest learners to thrive.

Our dedicated staff for the infant room is more than just caregivers; they are mentors and companions on your child’s early journey. Handpicked for their passion and expertise, our team is committed to ensuring your little one receives the personalized care and attention they deserve.

We understand the importance of staying connected with your child’s day. That’s why we offer daily digital communication, providing you with real-time updates, photos, and insights into your child’s activities, milestones, and precious moments.

We believe in empowering even our youngest learners. Our unique Sign Language program starts at around 7 months, allowing infants to express themselves and build early communication skills. It’s a beautiful way to bridge the gap between needs and understanding, fostering a strong foundation for language development.

Outdoor exploration is a vital part of our curriculum. Our little adventurers embark on stroller walks to the park, where they engage with nature, stimulate their senses, and develop a profound appreciation for the world around them.

Squirrels & Owls (Ages 18 months – 3 years)

We understand that potty training is a significant milestone for toddlers. Our specialized program caters to children aged 18 months to 3 years, providing a supportive and nurturing environment as they take their first steps towards independence. Our experienced team is here to guide your child through the exciting journey of potty training. With patience, encouragement, and a positive approach, we turn this milestone into a successful and confidence-building experience.

Stay connected with your child’s daily adventures through our exclusive parent app. Receive real-time updates, snapshots, and heartwarming moments that paint a vivid picture of your little one’s day, fostering a strong connection between home and school.

Immerse your toddler in a world of creativity! Our daily curriculum features singing, dancing, arts & crafts, and story time to inspire a love for learning. These activities not only stimulate the imagination but also contribute to the development of essential skills and self-expression.

Learning is an adventure, and we make it irresistibly fun! Our classrooms are designed to be playful and engaging, providing the perfect setting for toddlers to learn, explore, and make new discoveries every day.

Empower your little one with the richness of language! Our curriculum includes continued sign language instruction and an introduction to the enchanting world of Spanish, setting the stage for strong communication skills and cultural appreciation.

Bunnies & Raccoons (Ages 3 – 4 years)

We believe in making learning a thrilling adventure! Our curriculum is a dynamic blend of Math, Early Literacy, Science, and the arts. From numbers to words, exploring the wonders of science, and expressing creativity through art and music – every day is an exploration of knowledge and joy.

We’re not just shaping students; we’re cultivating responsible leaders. Our engaging approach to learning extends beyond textbooks as children actively participate in classroom jobs. This not only instills a sense of responsibility but also nurtures teamwork and a strong work ethic.

Witness your child’s daily triumphs and discoveries with our dedicated parent app. Receive real-time updates, photos, and insights into their educational journey. This seamless communication ensures you’re an active part of their growth, creating a strong bridge between home and school.

Building strong interpersonal skills is as crucial as academics. Our commitment to social growth extends beyond the classroom, creating an environment where children learn to collaborate, communicate, and form lasting friendships. Every interaction is a stepping stone to a socially confident future.

Kindergarten Prep (Ages 4 – 5 years)

Our Kindergarten Readiness Program follows the same base curriculum as LISD’s Pre-K, ensuring that your little one receives a comprehensive and high-quality education that aligns with industry standards.

Engagement and self-expression are key components of our program. Every week, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child through Show & Tell, providing a platform for them to share their interests and discoveries. And what better way to let loose and express themselves than through our lively dance parties? It’s not just fun; it’s a celebration of individuality and creativity.

We go beyond academics; we’re dedicated to nurturing well-rounded individuals. Our program is designed to foster both academic and social/emotional growth. Through carefully crafted activities and interactions, we ensure that all our little graduates are not just academically prepared but are also equipped with the social and emotional skills to confidently embark on their next big step – Kindergarten.
