Our mission is to build our community with confident learners by providing children with quality enriched experiences to develop self confidence, independence, problem solving, cognitive and social skills. We strive to create a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment which fosters the individual needs of each student.
Our staff views education as a meaningful partnership between parents and teachers. We believe it is essential to develop a good rapport with each child and parent based on open communication and mutual respect. We believe this is the foundation of a successful school experience. Here at Little Sprouts, we believe in empowering children by offering them
opportunities to make decisions and solve problems.
It is our goal that children will possess confidence in their abilities and establish lasting relationships with teachers and peers. By offering an engaging curriculum it is our aspiration that each child will develop a positive outlook towards school, a better appreciation of the world around them and acquire a life long love for learning during their time spent with us at Little Sprouts.
At Little Sprouts we provide an educational environment which:
• Encourages creativity, interest and joy of learning through a “hands-on”
approach by using a multi sensory approach in both teacher directed
and child driven lessons.
• Enhances language and literacy through meaningful dialogues between
adults and children, listening and discussing stories, participating in
group play and promoting language experienced activities.
• Develop social thinking and reasoning skills by guiding them to resolve
peer conflicts using vocabulary and positive behavior.
• Development of both fine and gross motor skills. Fine motor skill
development may be exercised through artwork, scissor use, block
building and cooking. Gross motor activities may include running,
jumping, balancing and dancing.
Our school encompasses 4 bright and visually stimulating learning rooms
that each class uses through out the day. All of the learning experiences
the children participate in at Little Sprouts are not limited to each defined
classroom. Integrated learning happens in every room at any given
moment. Connections and academic growth are made regardless of
which room they are presently in.
Language Arts Room: This room encourages the development and
stimulation of english language skills. Group discussions (both large
and small group settings), developing listening skills, awareness of print,
rhyming, development of vocabulary, letter recognition and sound,
retelling of stories and emergent writing skills are just some of the
learning experience that can take place in this room. These skills provide
the foundation for learning to read and write for later academic
Math Room: Mathematical thinking is incorporated into block play and
dramatic play as well as using concrete objects and manipulatives for a
meaningful purpose. Number sense, measurement, more than, less than,
sorting by attributes, categorizing like objects, patterning, shapes and
spatial sense are just a few learning experience that may take place in our
hands-on Math Room.
Science Room: Inquiry and exploration are fundamental to all the
sciences. Our science room promotes discovery and investigation.
Predictions and observations on hands-on science experiments, using
simple tools appropriately to extend observations, hands-on exploration

stimulating art experiences. Exploring Visual Arts through the use of a
variety of materials and media to exploring the sounds made by various
rhythm instruments and marching and dancing to various tempos and

expressiveness and creativity in both music and art are fundamental
preschool learning experiences.
