About Us

The Acorn School of Charleston

The Acorn School of Charleston is a non-profit organization in South Carolina. The Acorn School has been granted 501 (c) (3) status by the Internal Revenue Service. The school currently offers a mixed-age kindergarten for children ages three through six. Our goal is to grow into a grade school in the coming years. Our teachers are dedicated to fostering a genuine love of learning in each child. We are inspired by Waldorf education, an approach created by educator, scientist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner, designed to respond to children’s developmental phases and nurture their imaginations. His educational aims were to encourage creativity, innovation, freedom of thought, stewardship of the natural world, and care for human community.”

Age Appropriate Education

Modern educational trends have turned classrooms into pressure cookers, resulting in a dramatic increase in anxiety in children of all ages and as young as five. The Acorn School of Charleston offers students a haven from these anxiety producing environments. Our approach has deep respect for the childhood years and understands the psychology and science behind the importance of play for young children. Our program is inspired by Waldorf Early Childhood Education, a play-based experiential learning approach, has been educating children in this respectful, gentle way for 100 years in 83 countries around the world. Please contact us today to explore how our program can serve as an oasis for your family in today’s stressful society. Our preschool kindergarten program is one of a kind in the Charleston area.
