Acorn Learning Center is a second-generation family run program that was established in 1987. Over the past 30 years Acorn’s longstanding administrative team has collaborated to develop a finely honed program that has been recognized numerous times by Bay Area Parent for their Best of the Bay Award.

Here at Acorn we create an environment where students are encouraged to be inquisitive. Through individually developed lesson plans, teachers propose questions to students about the world they live in and design experiences that allow children to discover their own conclusions. It’s through these moments that Acorn students find their inner confidence, build critical thinking skills, create lasting bonds with students and teachers, and ultimately gain an education that drives them to succeed.



At Acorn we’ve created a unique, blended curriculum that borrows qualities from all of our favorite philosophes and incorporates them into one modern program. Our guiding principle is to create a developmentally appropriate setting that addresses cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth so as to set a foundation for successful higher learning.


Families interested in enrolling are invited to come view Acorn’s programs in action by scheduling a tour via phone or email. Parents are welcome to bring their children with them on tours, but it is not required. After participating on an initial tour families are given the option of scheduling a second trial visit where students are able to spend an hour in the classroom and experience a day at Acorn for themselves. Reach out to your nearest campus to learn more about our programs, or better yet, schedule a tour and let your family experience Acorn firsthand.

We’re very happy with the education they provide to our kids and service they provide to us parents. We really love all the teachers and staff at Acorn. They truly care for and love the kids that are there and have a very warm approach."
