The Acorn Academy.


The Acorn Academy

Drew University’s on-site child care center—Drew Child Development Center—was established in 1990. It provided child care services to the Drew community with an emphasis on social, emotional and educational growth. After 20 years in the Carriage House on campus, we have established a new school in a new location—The Acorn Academy—located on the edge of campus in the United Methodist Church of Madison. Our new location offers the same “on-site” convenience as well as the opportunity to grow and expand. Due to overwhelming demand for placement in our program we sought a larger facility to accommodate the needs of our families.

The Acorn Academy embraces the Reggio inspired philosophy—an approach to teaching that emphasizes social and emotional growth in a strong and safe school community.

Acorn Academy is currently participating in the Grow NJ Kids initiative.
