News & Happenings
This week we are so excited to welcome two new children to our little school, Riona and Lilah! The children have helped pick out their cubbies and we will make sure the girls feel right at home! We also re-welcome Ms. Kristin to Little Acorn Learning. Ms. Kristin will be teaching 3-4 days per week and has been with us throughout the years we have been open.
Please remember to bring a sleeping bag and pillow, a healthy packed lunch and drink as well as the items listed in your parent handbook provided to you upon enrollment. Pick up is before 4:30 pm each day - late fees will be applied for pick ups after that time unless previously arranged.
If you are a new parent and have not yet submitted your two week deposit and first week's tuition, please do so before your first day. You must also have all paperwork and files completed and turned in before starting school.
