Conceived and directed by an Early Childhood college instructor out of concern for her own child and all young children, Sprout House embodies the soundest research and theories in education. Although it is unique, the school is primarily based on the modern British Infant School.
At Sprout House, children are allowed to be children, to grow and learn at their own pace, and to develop inner controls with sincere and gentle guidance.
Spontaneous play is valued and encouraged for the sheer pleasure, rich learning experiences, and social skills it fosters.
A strong but unpressured emphasis is placed on science. Most experts now agree that the abstracts (shapes, colors, letter, and numbers) have limited value without a broad base of life experience. Sprout House provides many opportunities to study living and non-living things in a gentle and respectful atmosphere.
