The Acorn School, a non-profit organization, offers classes for two, three and four year olds. Children play, explore and learn in bright and inviting classrooms, as well as a charming outdoor playspace and garden. Experienced teachers create child-centered curriculums and guide children to support their social, emotional and cognitive growth, as well as instill a lifelong love of learning. Building community is a top priority, and we work closely with families to support them as their children experience the wonder of school for the first time and prepare for their schooling beyond East 26th Street.


Creating artwork is one of our student's favorite activities in the classroom. Click above to see some recent work.


Our 10,000-square-foot campus includes four classrooms, gardens, an enclosed playground, and an indoor activity center.


From our Trustees to local volunteers to class parents to social and fundraising events, our parents play an integral part of our community.
