This program was designed for homeschooling parents, teachers or childcare providers who wish to share the joy of nature with the children in their care and create a healthy rhythm to their day. It is ideal for mixed-aged situations with ideas for both young and older children included.
While our curriculum is not religiously oriented, Little Acorn Learning does honor a Creator in many of the verses, songs and blessings that we use. We celebrate many seasons and festivals, with an emphasis on Christian saints and holidays. We encourage you to weave your own traditions and customs into the program to make it work best for your program.
