Little Acorn SD is dedicated to providing children with a balanced education where the creative, imaginative, practical and logical facets of the mind are all nourished by implementing the best practices of Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Waldorf. Through the art of storytelling the children learn about the intricacies of navigating life socially. These stories encourage friendship, forgiveness, courage, and fortitude in a way that is age appropriate. At the core of our philosophy is the importance of body movement which is so fundamental for the chrildrens’ neurological development.
