In A Nutshell

Kids Learn & Play At Little Acorn Learning Center.

Kara Nygren has always loved children and children’s programming, so as the number of Serenbe families has grew she realized the need for services that extend to children too young to attend school. Thus the inception of Little Acorn Learning Center for children six months to 10 years in the One Mado Building.

Kara’s passion for child development is reflected in Little Acorn’s mission, to provide a place of play and structure, and in the items that fill the Learning Center. There are sections for children to read or draw and color, as well as a play kitchen area and a building are where there are cars, blocks and other similar toys.

Many of the items were lovingly donated by community members, including Kara herself. The wooden kitchen set belonged to the Nygren girls - Garnie, Kara and Quinn - when they were children. The interactive play table in the middle of the room was one of the first big purchases Kara made for Camp Serenbe.

Children at Little Acorn Learning Center also have access to Serenbe’s abundance of nature and trails, giving them the opportunity to play, learn and “to be themselves” whether indoors or out, just like Serenbe’s adult residents.
