General School Mission

Sprout's teaching philosphy is that Children Learn through Play. We implement a Creative Curriculum in our classrooms; every day there is a block of time dedicated to open-station exploration.

A Typical Day

A general schedule for 3 year old classes would look like:
9:30 Welcome circle
9:50 Learning centers
10:20 Outdoor play
10:50 Bathroom break & snack
11:15 Story
11:30 Art Project
11:55 Learning centers
12:15 Goodbye circle
12:30 Dismissal


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Parents in classroom early on
