“Acorn Seedlings”

Come celebrate the joy of learning!

We provide a Christian Montessori Preschool program for children ages  2-5 years. Acorn Christian Montessori Preschool is located at Acorn West, 7555 East Long Look Drive, Prescott Valley 928-775-0238.

Pre-School Mission:

Our purpose is to raise up children in the Light of the Lord, dedicating their precious spirit to His Holy work.  Acorn Christian Montessori is a non-denominational program. We encourage all children and their families to enjoy each day the Lord has made.

With New Expansion comes New Opportunities!

Acorn Montessori School is thrilled to announce the completion of our brand new, state of the art gymnasium! It has been a dream of our school community for many years to be able to expand and offer a place for sports, movement, and gross motor development. Our youngest population of preschool and pre-k students have been ecstatic to use this new space thanks to a generous donation of developmentally appropriate materials such as balance beams, sensory equipment, tumbling mats, trampolines, obstacle courses, and much, much more! Our program encourages and focuses on learning through play, and this added area, along with all of these beautiful materials, only adds to our center based classrooms. Students get to move and explore while learning balance and coordination, strength and endurance, attention and alertness, body awareness, and movement. Seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter will surely bring a smile to your face. Come share the joy!

Financial Policy:

We offer competitive fees, which pay for either a part-time or full-time position and is payable whether you child attends or not. Tuition is due before the “close of business” on the 1st of each month. Payments may be paid by check, cash, credit/debit card, money order or cashier’s check. You may also set up payment through your bank using bill pay. The bank will mail the check directly to the school. If you choose to pay with a credit/debit card a 3.3% processing fee will be added to your invoice.

If two or more children attend at the same time from the same family, a 5% discount will be applied to the tuition of the additional child.

A 5% discount will be applied for payment of tuition 6 months in advance. For 1 year advance payment, a 10% discount will be given.

Late Fee: A late fee of $50 will be assessed if payment is not received by the 5th of each month. If tuition continues to be unpaid through the 5th, your child may not attend until payment or written arrangements are made.

Return check: There will be a $50 service charge for all returned checks.

Acorn Montessori’s hours of operation are 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. You must contact the school if you are unable to pick up your child before closing. A fee in the amount of $15 per 15 min/child will be charged at the time of pick up.

We are a non-profit self-supporting program. Registration and tuition fees cover the operating expenses of the program. Timely payments are expected from all parties for services to continue. We will strive to provide your child with an exceptional educational experience.

 

Withdraw Policy:

The fee is covering a position for my child and is due whether or not my child attends. The fees will no longer be payable when my child is withdrawn, which requires a 30 day notice.

National School Choice Week

Acorn Montessori School participated in the largest school choice celebration in American history. Acorn School’s event was one of thousands being held across the nation during a week designed to shine a spotlight on effective education options for all children. Acorn Montessori was honored to be included in this nationwide event.

Our Preschool children did a school-wide Preschool Parade with the new musical instruments they received from First Things First and Quality First. We at Acorn Montessori School are committed to quality improvement through these two organizations.

We thought our parade would be the perfect way to say thank you to organizations from around the world, brought to our small town, for all the wonderful children and staff we have at Acorn. Children First Always is our motto, and by looking at these children’s faces, you can see they came first and had a blast.

We would like to thank National School Choice Week, First Things First and Quality First for this opportunity.
