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 receive more information once it is available please  fill out this quick survey.

Preschool Family Informational Meetings

Interested in Sprouts Garden Preschool? Please join us for one of our informational meetings on March 30 or April 1st. 

The meetings will be held virtually on Zoom, and we will share the preschool's mission, the parent handbook, and review how to enroll, tuition, schedules, and more. We'll be happy to answer any and all questions you may have at the end of the meeting. 

Both Zoom meetings will be the same content, so you only need to attend the night that works best for you. 

On March 22nd the parent handbook and more information will be posted here, so be sure to come back to learn more before attending the meeting! 

March 30th at 6pm: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4384197982

April 1st at 6pm: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4384197982

If you are new to zoom, join us a few minutes early to get familiar with the platform and we'll do our best to help you if you're having any issues. If you cannot connect via inernet, please call 715-869-4565 or email eschuler@monkgardens.org and we will get you the call-in information. 


Preschool enrollment will open on April 2nd for Monk Botanical Gardens members only (must have a family membership or higher); enrollment information will be sent to members by email.
