Acorn Montessori Preschool has Expanded!

Acorn Montessori Preschool is a play-based, Quality First center through First Things First Arizona. All of our staff are highly qualified and trained in early childhood education, and dedicated to ensuring each child is provided with individualized attention and lessons that are aligned with early childhood learning standards and best practices. With our program often full, waitlists long, and Acorn as a whole growing beyond the space we had, we decided to move our preschool and pre-k program to our brand-new North Campus. This building has been completely renovated inside and out to be able to provide an ideal preschool environment. By moving our program, here are just some of the benefits we are looking forward to providing:

  • Lower teacher to student ratios
  • Smaller class sizes
  • Additional, highly qualified staff
  • Additional playground space
  • Splitting students into more developmentally appropriate age groups
  • There are FIVE classrooms now– two 2-year-old classrooms, two 3-year-old classrooms, and one 4 to 5-year-old classroom focused on kindergarten readiness.
  • Smaller school environment where preschoolers have their own campus without school-aged students.

We are ecstatic to continue to share our program with the early childhood community of Yavapai County!
