Acorns & Oaks

Acorns & Oaks is a unique, homegrown, parent-child educational program that is rooted in whole-child philosophy & developmental play, set in the beautiful gardens of the Arboretum!  

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 626.821.5897 or brooke.applegate@arboretum.org.
