Welcome to our community blog! This is a new forum for us at Mountain Sprouts to communicate our vision for Sprouts’ future with the greater Leavenworth community. It’s important to us that we’re staying aligned with the needs around us, therefore, we hope this forum will help us share how we are responding to our community and organizational needs.
Our first big project we want to share is our plans for expansion of our preschool classroom. The Leavenworth community has grown in more ways than one since Mountain Sprouts first opened our doors six years ago. Our little preschool classroom is one result of that - we are bursting at the seams with so many interested families. After hearing more from those families (through our survey last winter) we are ready to offer more programs to fit the needs of our community.
Our classroom at Tierra Learning Center is currently planning for a long term expansion to facilitate more students. Unfortunately, that will take some time and we want to find an alternative solution as soon as possible! In a new space we could possibly serve more families with new age groups, new class options and new location options. We won't know what our future has in store until we secure a new facility, but our continual goal is to cultivate learning in our youngest students while serving the needs of families.
We could not have come to this decision without your input so we’d like to thank everyone that participated in our expansion survey last winter! We heard from local families that you need more options for your preschoolers that are affordable, near home and based on child-centered learning. The Upper Valley community is full of energetic, talented families and it is tough to find quality education and care for our kiddos while maintaining our professional lives. We know you need the care to provide for your family and the education to give your kids the best start possible. This survey has been our guide so far for our future planning.
Let us know if you have desires, ideas or opportunities you would like to share with us as we embark on this new phase!
