This position would include basic clerical support, such as answering phones,  record keeping, maintaining student files, data entry, and printing and making copies.

    Who we are in depth?

    The Acorn follows the principles of Child Development, including the studies of Piaget, Erikson, and others. Children learn concretely, interacting with real materials in meaningful ways. By experiencing their world through all their senses, they develop an understanding of their environment. We encourage creative thinking, exploring the many different ways we can approach an activity. Children develop at their own pace on their own timetable. At The Acorn, activities are planned to set each child up for success, instilling a love of learning and a curiosity which inspires interesting discoveries. Individual goals are set for each child based on their developmental level.

    All staff at The Acorn are led by these guiding principles as we create an environment where children are respected and childhood is honored. Our staff is expected to exhibit a volunteer spirit, open communication skills, and a helpful attitude in ensuring that The Acorn exceeds our goals. Our school would not exist without a passionate and knowledgeable office team, which collaborates to keep the school functioning in a smooth and confident manner.
