Nature Nursery School & Monthly Nature-Based Guides
for Childcare and Home
Little Acorn Learning offers both a three-day per week and five-day per
week program for your natural learning experience.
Our three-day program is our original series. Since that time, we have
enhanced and improved our guides into a five-day per week program
which has additional features such as book recommendations, teacher
classroom work, morning talk suggestions and five full days of ideas and
activities for your children. Be sure to also check out our seasonal
childcare menus for whole food recipes based on Rudolf Steiner's color
and grain of the day.

which guides caregivers through each step of Our Daily Rhythm:
Morning Talk Suggestions
Weekly Story with Puppet Show Ideas
Teacher's Classroom Work
Bedtime Story and Blessing
This program was designed for parents 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
