Meet the Teacher

Hey, there! I'm Sierra Ross, owner and teacher of Acorn & Oak. I'm so glad you've found me . . . if you're a parent looking for a high-quality nature-based childcare program for your toddler/preschooler, I know we're going to be friends!

All About Me

I'm a state-certified early childhood educator with 6 years of experience teaching grades K-3 in public schools in Northern Virginia and 11 total years of experience working with young children in schools. My undergraduate degree is in psychology, concentrating on child development; my masters degree is in Gaelic Literature (I'm quite the book nerd!). I also have tons of professional development credit hours in environmental/nature-based outdoor education, which has heavily influenced the curriculum here at Acorn & Oak.


After becoming a mama myself two years ago, I discovered how much I enjoy teaching even younger children than I was working with in public education. When my family relocated from Northern Virginia to the Richmond area, I knew it was the perfect time for me to follow my dream of opening a home-based childcare. Acorn & Oak was born!
