Sprouts

Every Thursday from 10 am-11 am, beginning on January 27th, we welcome you and your child to Sprouts! Sprouts is a literacy circle time activity including a variety of theme-based activities. It is a time for social interactions and positive relationships among young children through creative expression and play. The activities are an excellent way to get children to become familiar with the concept of time through schedule and routine. Activities are light and fun and help to increase a child’s awareness of language, physical, and sensory experiences.
