The Children's House
Where Children Build
Their Foundation for Success
We at Acton Montessori believe that a child's education is the most important investment a family can make. Our preschool is dedicated to providing the foundation for your child's success in life through a balance of socialization and academics. Our school's small and intimate environment and the excellent natural light in our open classroom nurture children's bodies and spirits. With years of Montessori teaching experience, our superb staff provides your child with the skills to grow into successful, independent thinkers.

SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS
ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM
Ian and Caitlin both grew up in Cabot, Vermont. In early 2013, they purchased the 36 acres that would become Ackermann Maple Farm, and constructed their business. The sap that flows from more than 3,000 taps is heated using a wood fire, evaporating the water and drawing out the pronounced natural maple flavor for which Vermont is known. The tapping, sap collection, boiling, filtering, bottling, and shipping are all done by Ian and Caitlin. Cabot, VT
LITTLE BEEHIVE FARM
Tony Lulek started beekeeping in 2004, calling the enterprise Little Beehive Farm. The farm packs a lot on just under an acre of land in suburban Boston: a huge vegetable garden, a large array of woody shrubs, trees, and perennials, an ever-changing number of chickens, and our hives. Our products include: honey, handmade soaps, hand creams, body lotion, honey candy, candles, honey mustard, and lip balms. Holliston, MA
MANRAAJ LIQUID YOGA
Freshly made herb juices served as incentives for yoga or exercise for us when we grew up in India. For the last few years, we have been recreating the same magic. Manraaj, a liquid yoga company, is our attempt to spread the goodness to others and serve health-conscious folks. Lowell, MA
PONY SHACK CIDER
This family-owned cidery nestled in the heart of apple country produces small batch, artisanal cider from locally sourced ingredients. We dream big and believe life is too short to drink a bad glass of cider. Boxborough, MA
