Preschool and Kindergarten Program

Our Philosophy
Little Sprouts Preschool nurtures the natural curiosity and enthusiasm of children, developing a lifetime love of learning. We believe every child has natural strengths and capabilities. Our goal is to empower children to discover and hone their strengths as they explore the world, create meaning, and challenge their own thinking. Over time, children apply their knowledge confidently and successfully to new situations, resulting in feelings of pride and self-worth.

Our Program
Our program provides children with individual choices of play and work, allowing solo exploration as well as peer learning. Through projects, learning centers, and group activities, children develop social, academic, visual, and motor skills as they explore math, science, literacy, social studies, and the arts. Groups come together in a nurturing, collaborative environment, with teachers who design learning experiences that are responsive to student interests and involve exploration and expression. Our flexible program enables families to choose which days and times work best for their child. Families choose from two to four days per week, with either half or full-time days.

Our Teachers
We believe the best teachers are facilitators—guiding children as they explore their world, documenting their ideas, and supporting them in their learning. We hire knowledgeable teachers who are passionate about their subjects, teach in an interactive, engaging way, and love and respect our children. By integrating all areas of the curriculum and encouraging in-depth learning experiences, Little Sprouts teachers help children discover and develop their skills and talents, experience deep thinking, and develop positive social interaction skills.

The class is designed to be a fun and exciting way to introduce young children to learning about all of the wonders in the world around them. Our Leaflets will learn about concepts in science, social studies, math, art, and language through age-appropriate, hands-on activities, experiments, and exploration. We will paint, explore nature, sing, and act out stories; we will not sit in a circle and recite our ABCs and 123s. We will work and play together in large and small groups, and do our own things, too; we will not all make copies of the same Father’s Day card or handprint turkey (sorry dads!). This is a great opportunity for children to develop important social and scholastic skills to help them learn and grow, whatever educational environment lies ahead. And, it’s a great opportunity for them to do all of the messy things you don’t really want them to do in your own home!
