Sprouts Academy Preschool Managed By Bright Horizons

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Sprouts Academy Preschool, an eco-friendly preschool in Chicago’s River North neighborhood where children learn how to engage in a healthy and responsible lifestyle through daily learning projects,  green alternatives, healthy foods, and by taking a socially responsible stance in their environment.  Our curriculum is enriched with weekly classes in our STEM Lab, art classes in our Art Studio, yoga and weekly sports classes in our indoor Movement Matters Zone, Spanish, music, and a lending library.   Plus, hands-on learning in our large garden located at Chicago Lights Urban Farm.  Community outreach is a cornerstone of our school and our families, teachers, and children support monthly projects with organizations such as Cradles to Crayons, the Heifer Foundation, Make a Wish, Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Salvation Army.  We look forward to meeting your family!
