Harlem Sprouts: Grow Together

Harlem Sprouts: Grow Together

Consider our early childhood separation program for 2 + 3 year olds your child's first opportunity to independently participate in creating community.

Our model is an intentionally mixed-age one, focusing on play-based learning that encourages exploration, curiosity, and self-discovery. Our experienced teachers will guide your family through a healthy, gentle separation process by establishing a safe and nurturing classroom experience. Curated work stations, facilitated transitions, community meetings, small group work, and engaging provocations are some of the ways we develop our classroom community identity. The mixed-age model sets the stage for our children to observe, connect, and learn from each other at varying developmental stages while teachers provide targeted, differentiated instruction based on learning style and individual interest.

We will provide a healthy, kosher, dairy, nut-free snack and water. Please note that additional forms will be required before the start of the program (medical information, family contracts, COVID disclosures, etc.).
