General School Mission

Sprouts Academy Preschool has taken a very unique approach to education. It is here that children ages 2 to 6 years old learn how to engage in a healthy and responsible lifestyle through daily exposure to learning projects, natural living green alternatives, harvesting school-grown food for healthy cooking and eating, as well as by taking a socially responsible stance in their environment, both within the school as well as the community around them. One of our many goals is to embrace each individuals innate need for a happy, healthy childhood in order to further their positive development well into adolescence, and even throughout adulthood. The children of Sprouts Academy thrive in this playful yet educational context, growing into healthy, environmentally conscious, and independent thinkers.
