Sprouts Garden Preschool

Registration Open Now for Fall 2021!

Sprouts Garden Preschool is a garden/nature based preschool program hosting 3-5 year olds. Sprouts Garden Preschool will put nature and plants at the heart of the program. It will be based on high-quality early childhood education and environmental education practices, and it will help lay a foundation of environmental literacy. Studies have shown that children learn best through play and hands-on experiences. Students will spend at least 80% of their time outdoors, guided in exploration and learning by a skilled early childhood environmental educator.

Open Houses, July 21st & August 5th 5-7pm at the pavilion! 

Drop in between 5-7pm to meet Brittany Ollhoff and Kaytie Roettiger, Sprouts Garden Preschool's lead and assistant teachers! Get to know them both, ask questions, and find out more about Sprouts Garden Preschool.

You can even get a sneak peek inside the yurt classroom!

Come talk to us at our table outside Whitewater Music Hall on Saturdays July 31st and August 7th!
