I am thrilled to have my daughter enrolled in Brookline Sprouts. The staff truly has a heart for these kids. The updates they have been making and are continuing to make to improve the facility and learning environment here are incredible. My daughter loves the new glow-fish tank and the their most recent science experiment, watching live caterpillars become butterflies.
Each teacher brings a unique aspect to the program. From Ms. Mandi’s creativity to Ms. Char’s thoughtfulness, each teacher ensures that our children are inspired to learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment.Carmen M.
Preschool aged children need regular, vigorous, active play to develop and grow properly. We encourage our children and promote their physical and emotional wellbeing through outside play, running and water activities. This strengthens their bones, muscles, and the brain, to establish connections between all of them. A physical active lifestyle is crucial for long healthy life.
At Brookline Sprouts, it is important to us that our students are kindergarten ready. We put a strong emphasis on teaching our students their letters and knowing how to spell and recognize their names. We incorporate fun games, activities, and the traditional tracing techniques to accomplish these goals such as using Lego’s during the unit “L.”
Through out the day at Brookline Sprouts, students will move steadily throughout different centers following the 1-6 schedule. Having a routine will provide the children with the understanding of time management and will ultimately strengthen relationships by focusing on time together.
Scientific inquiry provides the opportunity for children to develop a range of skills, either explicitly or implicitly. We engage our children and promote their exploration of the world around them. We do this by performing hands on experiments and activities in class such as watching the metamorphosis of caterpillars turning into butterflies.
Incorporating arts and crafts into the daily lessons promotes bilateral coordination, fine motor coordination and self-regulation. These foundational skills will translate to other areas of their lives, such as dressing, eating, and in the academic setting.
