SPROUTHOUSE PRESCHOOL (“FARM SCHOOL”)

For over thirteen years, Sunflower Farm has provided a quality early-childhood, farm-based education. Our curriculum is inspired by Richard Louv's ongoing research and his book "Last Child in the Woods.” Your child’s first solo venture into the world could not be more ideal than this. This 55-acre working farm has everything to foster deep learning as well as inspire and captivate the souls of children. From the sky above to the dirt between their toes, to the baby lamb that studies their step or a peacock’s bellow that startles their heart, all curiosity, wonder and learning innately arise. We not only learn about animals and nature, but the profound necessity and connectedness in how it relates to their everyday expanding world. We will study worms wiggling in puddles after the rainfall. We'll count baby chicks, plant carrots, and learn about compost. We harvest sunflowers from the field and sing aloud in the wind. As we watch baby lambs nurse, it triggers endless stories about their own mamas. Adventures are endless.

We realize that families want and need choices on how many days they will attend. Since it is our experience that children do best attending two days weekly, we will encourage you to consider this option. However, whether you choose single days weekly or several, we are confident this farm environment will foster a joy in learning and create a solid foundation for the years to come.

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.
