Blooming Sprouts

Blooming Sprouts is conveniently located at our Little Sprouts schools. Our Blooming Sprouts summer program experience is specifically designed to embrace our younger school age friends. Following the same themes as Big Sprouts, the age-appropriate activities are engaging, exciting, and collaborative. As children make new friends, they also gain new skills to help develop self-confidence and independence. Through games, crafts, experiments, and plenty of playground fun in the sun, our Blooming Sprouts summer friends form long-lasting connections throughout an exhilarating, memorable summer.

This is not your ordinary science lesson – welcome to the Big Sprouts Investigation Lab! Examine the inner-workings of a giant water wall, create exploding volcanoes and chemical reactions, and challenge your team to win a colossal Lego competition. Have fun with food as we build marshmallow and toothpick bridges and learn to cook up rock candy. Science never tasted so sweet!
