Sprouts Garden Preschool

Coming 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.


To begin the enrollment process complete the Preschool Application & Enrollment Form and pay the $30 Application Fee

Once we have received your enrollment form and application fee, we will be in touch to let you know we have received them and to let you know next steps.
