Welcome to our website!
We are a community of people in the Ann Arbor area who have come together support each other through the years of raising young children and beyond. We continually assess the needs of the community to develop programs that can meet each of those needs.
Currently, those programs consist of Acorn Glen Cooperative Preschool, a curriculum-free, all play cooperative preschool for children 2.5 - 6; Acorn Glen Center for Self-Directed Learning (CSDL), a school aged program for children 5-18 that is founded upon self-directed learning and meant to replace compulsory schooling and supplement home schooling or unschooling; and The Lodge @ Acorn Glen, a new program that provides space for the community to meet for an array of activities, whether that be a simple play date or a communal dinner, thus sharing in the joys of companionship and benefiting from the communities ability to provide gentle, loving care and supervision for our children as they play together and we get the time and space to work, chat, or play.
Have fun exploring, and please do not hesitate to contact us via phone or email to schedule a tour or ask any questions about the programs.
