YOUR INFANT’S EARLY EDUCATION AT THE SPROUT ACADEMY

Our five areas of focus give your baby endless opportunities to learn and grow. 

Communicating With Others
The Sprout Academy helps your infant learn to engage with others.
We talk with your child; communicate verbally and through non-verbal gestures; tell stories and sing songs to model conversational skills; and use picture books to build association between sounds, objects and words. 

Building Brain Power
The Sprout Academy prepares your infant to think and reason.
We help your child explore the concepts of cause-and-effect, trial-and-error, and object permanence through play; provide a variety of materials of different colors, sizes, textures, and shapes; and encourage the use of all five senses to discover the world. 

Making New Friends
The Sprout Academy lays the foundation for your infant to develop trusting relationships.
We respond to your baby with sensitivity and attention; use words, facial expressions, and eye contact to communicate; and use family photos to promote self-awareness and provide continuity with your child’s home. 

Growing a Healthy Body
The Sprout Academy helps your infant improve mobility and coordination.
We support your baby as he or she rolls from side-to-side and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards; and meet your child’s individual needs for rest and nutrition. 

Nurturing Creativity
The Sprout Academy encourages your child to express individuality.
We provide paint, crayons, and other tools that promote artistic exploration and creativity; support imaginative play with photo cards and puppets; and encourage self-expression through movement and music.
