ACORNS & OAKS is a unique, homegrown, parent-child educational program that is rooted in whole-child philosophy & developmental play. Designed to provide outdoor, nature-based learning experiences for babies, toddlers and children up to the age of 5, the goal is to help our little acorns grow into mighty oaks!  Acorns & Oaks fosters parent and child bonding through tactile play with nature, crafts, songs, stories, and sensory integration. The program provides little ones with a natural environment in which to practice and further develop all growing abilities, particularly gross/fine motor, cognitive, and social-emotional skills. It also offers parents and caregivers the much-needed time to socialize and relax in a beautiful setting. The program is mixed-age for a “family learning” style, and siblings are warmly encouraged. All domains of development are nourished through intentional teaching and hands-on learning. A simple curriculum, group singing, & nurturing tactile play offer the perfect growth experience. Sessions offer direct contact with nature, crafts, songs, stories, and sensory integration. Acorns & Oaks is led by Betsy Edelberg, founder of Playgroup Los Angeles. Acorns & Oaks is mixed age for a family learning style, and siblings are welcome. Questions? Please contact Brooke Applegate at brooke.applegate@arboretum.org

“Acorns & Oaks” classes are taught by Betsy Edelberg (founder of Playgroup LA) who has taught hundreds of parents and children over 12 years! Betsy holds a degree in Child Development. She has certifications in Children’s Yoga, Brain Gym, and training in Waldorf Early Child Education.
