Sprouts Art & Nature School

As a micro-preschool, we are highly invested in our family-school fit;
our admissions process isn’t like other preschools.

"Sprouts is part of our "village" and we trust them completely. Not only that, but there are no other daycares in town that provide the level of outdoor, imaginative play that my son gets daily at Sprouts. THEY ARE A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH."

Step one in sprouts admissions is the interest applications.

Rather than a wait-list, Sprouts uses Interest Applications to keep a pool of interested families.

A (free) brightwheel account is required to complete the interest application.

We group interest applications based on the school year you would like to enroll in. Please be sure to fill out the correct application.

Step two in sprouts admissions is the enrollment application.

as a school-year program, we mainly enroll for august start dates. 

Enrollment for August start dates is held each February. WE occasionally have January openings or other openings through the year.

we use brightwheel to contact families in our interest pool with a link to our enrollment application.

Step three in sprouts enrollment is the interview and tour.

We will review enrollment applications and interview the ‘first best fit’ families, thus the timeliness in completing enrollment applications may be significant.

interviews include a review of policies, a tour of sprouts, and a general getting-to-know you.

As a very small school, this is the only time we offer tours of Sprouts.

Step Four in Sprouts Admissions is enrollment.

Following interviews we will offer enrollment to families that best fit our opening(s). Due to our small size, we aren’t able to enroll every family/child that interviews.

Current students have priority on all openings, followed by siblings of current and former students.

The only fee in our admissions process is upon enrollment acceptance.

Sprouts tuition aligns
with other high-quality preschools in the area.
Tuition is split into 10 equal monthly payments July – April
and paid through our online billing system.
