Preschool plays an essential role in early childhood development. It prepares your child socially, emotionally and academically for kindergarten, and ensures that they are ready for a classroom environment.

Long-term benefits include improved confidence, self-esteem, communication, and group interactions.  It also introduces a classroom schedule and format, and strengthens their ability to follow instructions. Preschool kick-starts their education and is a great foundation for a life of learning.  

Classes range from eight to 20 children and are supervised by two instructors.

Sprouts and Pre-K Kids are state-licensed Colorado Shines Level 4 preschool programs that utilize developmentally-appropriate activities and materials that are centered around a purposeful-play atmosphere.


Ages 3-4
Your child will make new friends and have fun while being introduced to preschool.  We will practice fine motor skills, following directions, social skill building and working with beginning concepts such as letters, numbers, and colors through song, music, movement, and arts and crafts.

Pre-K Kids 
Ages 4-5
Our classes are designed to encourage participation through a mix of teacher-led instruction and discovery learning. The curriculum includes math, music, arts, crafts, literacy, science exploration, plus so much more! Your child will grow socially as well as academically.
