|Little Acorn Learning
Monthly and Seasonal Guides
for Childcare and Home
Our *New* October Enrichment Guide is Available!
The Afterschool Enrichment books are different from our regular 3 day and 5 day lesson plan guides... the Enrichment books follow the rhythm of a weekly
theme with the flexibility that teachers, homeschoolers and afterschooling parents need to enrich their children's Waldorf learning experience at home or
school. Our new Monthly Enrichment Guides are filled to the rim with crafts, recipes, activities, stories and inner-work suggestions and they follow a weekly
theme to keep your home or school following a seasonal rhythm. They are not structured like classroom lesson plans, as our Childcare Lesson Plan Guides are
and keep older children in mind along with the caregiver. They are created so you can use the ideas as time allows without having each day specifically planned
out for you.
These Enrichment Guides were created to help parents, teachers and caregivers of all types create a healthy, rhythmic and peaceful home for their children.
These guides may be used with children attending traditional schools, Waldorf schools, private schools, childcare centers or with homeschooled children as an
enrichment tool to extend their Little Acorn ‘Learning’.
