2020-2021 Academic Year
"The Acorn School is the kind of preschool that every child should have the good fortune to experience. As its director, Wendy's leadership is critical to how well it is run with a dedication to child-centered, research-based playful learning. During the pandemic, Wendy developed at home learning kits, which have taken off even beyond her school community. This ingenious idea exemplifies her creativity and resourcefulness. I am thankful that she shares her expertise with pre-service teachers from local universities, too." -Deepti Kharod, National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
"Thank you, Mara. We are grateful for the way you and Wendy have handled this year. Edward's kindergarten experience could have looked very different. Thank you for being so cautious while maintaining the Acorn magic." ❤ kait gish
"The Acorn Box is by far the top shelf of Learning Kits. It has everything you could possibly need to get your kids off of screens, and learning through play. Unlike some other subscription boxes, this one comes with items that the kids will play with over and over again, as well as detailed activity books with projects that are not only fun, but easy to set up. The Acorn Box comes jam packed with supplies in a sturdy plastic case, that is incredible for storage. Again, they thought not only of the fun and learning through play for the kids, and of the ease for the parents and teachers as well.I couldn't recommend The Acorn Box any higher, and my kids have never looked more forward to getting mail." Melanie, mother in California commenting on our Play Based Learning Kits
“I think our kids are going to be as safe as they possibly can. I think the planning is very sound and I feel that my son is going to be very safe there.” Roger Garcia,M.D., Children's Hospital of San Antonio Pediatric ICU, and Acorn Parent
