Mountain Sprouts Preschool
Mountain Sprouts Preschool is a learning environment for children ages 3 through 5 years old. They believe that the role of the child at this early age is to experience the world first hand and maintain a sense of wonder. Their goal is to teach the children naturally by working through the heart, not the head. Their curriculum is therefore structured to nurture the whole child by providing hands-on learning and sensory motor experiences that lay the foundation for further learning and intellectual and social development. They provide an environment where children are encouraged and supported in integrating, understanding, and expanding their life experiences through five main disciplines – creative play, community, the natural world, practical work, and the arts. The role of the teacher is that of a guide, fostering good social skills, encouraging language and problem-solving skills, and presenting developmentally appropriate activities. In this way, Mountain Sprouts Preschool aims to provide a warm, safe and stimulating learning environment in which the whole child is nurtured… body, mind and spirit.
Summer Sprouts is their summer program offered to both locals and non-locals. They are offering 4 (2) week sessions with a different theme for each session. Please see their website for more information.
