What’s happening at the Urban Sprouts Child Development Center?
Urban Sprouts seeks to empower children and support their mental, physical, creative, and civil growth. In this supportive environment, children are encouraged to cultivate a love of lifelong learning. They achieve this by providing a wide array of programs: From the Center to the Community, Infants, Toddlers, Pre-K, Mixed-Age Play, Project-Based Learning, and Partners in Learning.
Urban Sprouts works to connect the home environment with the care environment. They welcome the full participation of children, educators, and family in child-led discovery learning. Connections between students and educators happen in a place that values trust, empathy, and communication, as well as socialization, diversity, and inclusion. Learning occurs in surroundings that foster curiosity and investigation guided by the student’s unique interests.
The Urban Sprouts Child Development Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). For more information on NAEYC standards, click here: NAEYC for Families.
