Nature Play and Learning

Garden Sprouts Pre-K transforms the Garden into an outdoor living laboratory, offering a unique learning experience for 4- to 5-year-olds.

Garden Sprouts’ approach integrates nature play, enabling children to observe, explore, and engage with the natural world, fostering a sense of wonder and encouraging discovery and experimentation. Through this hands-on, experiential method, children are introduced to essential Pre-K topics, preparing them for transition to Kindergarten.
