SPROUTHOUSE PRESCHOOL 2019

The SproutHouse is a licensed, self-contained preschool. We follow Colorado State Early Learning guidelines and take daily field trips to Sunflower Farm grounds. All learning is nature-based and experiential. During the course of the school year, children are introduced to seasons and life cycles. They develop relationships not only with each other, but with nature and the farm animals. Farm outings are rich and thoughtful—introducing children to respect, compassion, nurturing and uninterrupted creative play.

Open House: Feb. 8, 22, March 8, 22, 2-3pm and Feb. 22 at 10am
Please RSVP: sunflowerfarmmail@gmail.com

Both of my kids had the opportunity to attend SproutHouse before we moved. There is no place on Earth that compares to Sunflower Farm’s rich educational environment.

When I suggested to Olivia that perhaps it was too cold to go to farm school, she simply replied: ‘It doesn’t matter —Blue Jean (the baby goat) still needs to be fed. We have to go.”
