About Little Sprouts

You can have confidence that your child receives the best care and education possible at Little Sprouts Learning Centers.

Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care. Pursuing accreditation is a voluntary, ongoing commitment that can take up to 2 years to complete. It is a process of intensive self-study and improvement. Accreditation is a mark of distinction that helps you find the best possible educational experience for your child.
