From our exeriences there are some key elements that we believe parents should look for in a daycare or pre-k. There needs to be an assurance that there are staff members who are committed to their jobs as caretakers and teachers. There needs to be an atmosphere of love and respect for children to observe daily. Most of all, there needs to be a community that cares for a child’s emotional, social, and intellectual growth. Over time, these are the exact qualities that we have observed fromt he Acorn Academy of Madison. We have regularly trusted our little girl’s care to them, even at a young and tender age, and our trust has been rewarded with a happy, friendly, and smart toddler. For this, the Acorn Academy of Madison has both our thanks and our support.

We have been so happy with Acorn Academy and how much our daughter has grown since being enrolled. The staff are caring, nurturing, and we feel completely comfortable having our daughter there everyday. Everyone at Acorn is warm and inviting and we feel so loved there. What a gem to have in Madison.

Acorn Academy is such a special place to our family. Our kiddos are provided with diverse experiences through education and play, are taught to value compassion and empathy, and above all are truly cared for by the teachers and staff. We are so grateful to have found Acorn!

Our son just loved Acorn. The teachers provided a supportive and caring environment in which our son learned through play, so he acquired the knowledge and skills he needed for kindergarten in a way that felt fun and engaging to him. As a kindergartener, he often speaks fondly of his friends and teachers from Acorn, and we ffeel so grateful that he had such a positive first experience with school.
