What’s it all about? It’s about the process! The process is more important than the results. Curiosity and tinkering are responsible for great innovations in products, electronics and gadgets! Tinkering, at its core, begins with problem solving. At little Sprouts Academy we empower children with creative experiences that foster independent thinking, imagination and critical thinking skills. They begin developing small habits of thinking that allow for problem solving and creative expression that will carry throughout their learning.
