Acorn Cottage Child Care,a licensed home based child care,was established five years ago in the town of Wakefield, Rhode Island. We are on a quiet country road, where we take long walks on a daily basis, studying the foliage and learning about the birds and the bugs. We are open from 7:30 -4:30 Monday - Friday. Our children range in age from 3 months to five years of age. We follow the R. I. Early Learning Standards and have a structured program for the older kids beginning at 2 years of age. They learn the Pledge of Aliegance, colors, shapes, numbers, days of the week etc. through play, music, dance and circle time. We do a lot with crafts and clay. The younger children gain much from being around the older ones and older learn to be gentle and patient with the younger ones. Of course there is plenty of free play with books, puzzles, cars and trucks, dress up and playing house. There is a fenced in play yard with climbing abilities, lots of coups and bikes to ride and big trucks to push. It's a full day no matter what the age. References provided upon request.
