What Parents Think

"My daughter has been attending Little Acorns since she was 7 months old and I do not have enough good things to say about this place. The staff is caring and truly take the time to understand each child as an individual and nurture their unique potential. We are a bilingual family, so when my daughter began to babble her first words mixing languages the teachers were fast to ask me for a list of words in Portuguese, our native language, not only to help my daughter communicate but also to try and learn some of those words themselves! It was fun and entertaining to watch them practicing the words and SO great to see how welcomed my daughter and her individual needs are at Little Acorns!"
