Generally, your toddler is ready for school if they can:
-follow simple instructions
-separate from you
-be responsible for their own toileting
Our school is licensed to remain open for the families of essential workers during the Covid-19 emergency.
Our family is anxiously awaiting greater availability of testing in our community so that we are able to make an informed decision about when and how to provide continued care for the rest of our community.
We accept students who will be between 3 and 5 in September. Occasionally, a child may be ready for preschool before their 3rd birthday. If you wish to have your older 2-year-old considered for enrollment, feel free to contact us. Please keep in mind that we do not have a separate classroom for toddlers and we do not have facilities to change diapers.
We are currently operating under an Emergency License to offer care to children of essential workers. Our maximum class size for the 20-21 school year is 10.
When the state lifts restrictions, we will continue to operate as a Licensed, Certified Home Child Care for up to 16 students.
We do accept DHS.
At Sprout and Spark, we keep our ratio to just five students for each teacher. We believe that maintaining a low student to teacher ratio is critical for the development of our students.
Yes! We have a flock of chickens that the children help to feed and care for, three cats, one of which occasionally visits the classroom and plays with the students outside while on a leash, and during the crisis, our family adopted a sheepadoodle who we are training to work as a therapy dog for our students.
No. Our community thrives on consistency of expectations, teachers, and students. Currently, we offer four or five day preschool curricula for half-day or full-day students. Working with your child daily allows us to build the relationship we need to help them reach their full potential!
Additionally, we are committed to doing our part to create a stable cohort of 10 students.
