We are full of laughter, energy, excitement, and of course learning. Are you asking yourself, what can a one year old actually do and learn? My answer to that would be never ending. At this age children are capable of so much and reach many important milestones. We strive every day to foster that growth in each child.
The entry door is locked for the safety of the children and our staff. In order to gain access, Little Sprouts has a computer based entry system that requires an individual passcode for the front door.
A variety of activities such as group time, free choice, and guided small group time are all part of the curriculum. The child will learn to express themselves through music, movement, dancing, and art. Children will also enjoy:
