Acorns & Oaks is a parent-child educational program (traditionally known as a “Mommy & Me” class) rooted in whole-child philosophy & developmental play. This outdoor program fosters parent-child bonding through songs, crafts, stories, sensory integration, and tactile play with nature. While providing young children opportunities to practice and develop cognitive, social-emotional, and gross and fine motor skills, Acorns & Oaks gives caregivers the opportunity to socialize while learning new ways to engage with their children.
