Early Learning Curriculum

Sprouts Academy

Our Buttercup class provides a safe and explorative environment. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate and aims to engage children in learning the following concepts: 


  • Beginning counting
  • Shapes
  • Sorting 
  • Comparisons 


We spend a lot of time reading and extending the ideas of the stories into our classroom activities. We try to choose a variety of subjects so that everyone can find what they enjoy. The goal is to help our students love to read through: 

  • Recognizing letters 
  • Building vocabulary 
  • Talking about what we read 


Through exploration and discussion, preschoolers learn that science is part of their life — and that it's a lot of fun! In our classes we use a lot of hands-on, indoor and outdoor experiments to learn how to make predictions and observations. 

Motor skills 

Movement is at the very center of young children’s lives. It is an important facet of all aspects of their development. The early learning class aims to help our students develop both gross and fine motor movements through activities such as:

  • Holding a writing utensil or any hand held tool 
  • Learning to trace a line
  • Sensory play and learning activities
  • Playing games 

Social and emotional development 

Children’s learning is influenced in a large part by a range of social and emotional factors that we focus on: 

  • Peer relationships
  • Pretend play
  • Communication 
  • Sense of self including feeling good about themselves and what they can do

*Students will need to bring their own snack
*Students must be potty trained
