My business is not located in London, New York or Los Angeles. Can I still register?

Yes you can! The Acorn app is available everywhere and is open to providers everywhere. We are deploying in some cities first to help parents find a lot of information about their local activities. We will probably be in your city very soon, so feel free to contact us at [email protected] to discuss how we could help your local community.

I have claimed my business, do I have to do anything more?

The most important aspect at Acorn are the activities. In our app, parents can only search by activities and not businesses. If some activities have been pre-populated in your account, check that the information (schedule, price etc…) is correct. You have full control over the information you publish. If there are no activities attached to your business you will need to create at least one. The process take about 2 to 3 minutes. If you are a venue you can add your business hours as an activity and you will appear in the search results.

What type of businesses are allowed on Acorn?

Acorn is a kids activities app, this means that parents use Acorn to find things to do with their children. If you are providing a karate class, holding an arts and craft event or have a venue tailored for kids, you are welcome to sign up. If you are a restaurant or a nanny agency you probably don’t fit with our requirements, but feel free to email us at [email protected] to discuss.

Can I list my activity in different categories?

We have 9 general categories (Getting active, Little ones, Great outdoors, Party time, Days out, Words & wisdom, Music & dance, Arts & craft and Movies & theatre) that you can choose from. Each of these categories has sub-categories that help you narrow down where you fit.

I run a pregnancy yoga classes can I add my classes to Acorn?
