Thank you Acorn family for all the support, tenderness and love, you have provided to our son Phares. You are all angels, we will keep you in our hearts forever. I am sure Phares will miss you all.


Thank you, Acorn, for making my daughter’s introduction into pre-school so wonderful. She absolutely loved her teacher, Miss. Elaine and the support staff are all amazing. We love Acorn for its amazing loving, ‘dirty’ approach to learning and washing her extra set of clothing because they got dirty or wet was a pleasure knowing she was having fun. I would recommend this school to any potential parents any day. We miss you, Acorn!


Today Nicholas went for his 1st “big school” assessment, I am beaming with pride, he did such an amazing job. I wanted to thank Miss Debra, Miss Ghida and all the assistant teachers who have been on his nursery journey with him. You ladies are the absolute best. P’s Nick did a wonderful job as an Acorn Ambassador and he kept his shoes on!
