Sprouts are our youngest students, ages potty trained - 6. Sprouts learn the routine for caring for the animals, growing seasonal plants and preparing garden snacks, while also participating in story time, singing and dancing, going on short hikes, creating nature crafts, and playing freely in the forest. Over the course of a year with us, Sprouts students will improve their motor skills, taste a variety of fresh foods, grow socially by building relationships with others, and develop an attachment to nature.
