The Acorn Academy


The Acorn Academy has always been a special place at Drew University. As was announced in Fall 2018, Drew has been diligently working to keep the Academy open by finding another provider to take over operations, since the University will cease ownership and management at the end of our lease in August of 2020.

We are happy to announce that the United Methodist Church of Madison has committed to taking over the operation of the child care center when the University concludes its operation of the center on or about August 2020. They look forward to continuing to offer the same great education, programming and community-building that our families have come to know and love.

The Church and Drew University are committed to making this transition as seamless as possible for the staff, families and children of Acorn. We appreciate your support.

Drew University’s on site child care center was established in 1990 providing child care services to the Drew community. We now extend care to the greater Madison area as well. We have an emphasis on social, emotional, physical as well as educational growth. Acorn Academy is located at the edge of campus in the Educational Wing of the United Methodist Church. We are currently participating in the Grow NJ Kids initiative and use the Creative Curriculum.
