Sprouting Minds Preschool is preschool inspired by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Waldorf, and Montessori, located in a quite suburb in Maple Ridge, BC, away from the commotion of city life, surrounded by beautiful trails, and a well equipped outside space alive with endless possibilities for daily adventure.
Our facility offers a warm and inviting inside and outside space to support children’s imaginative play. A well designed open space and careful choice of materials is meant to provoke the children’s sense of wonder, curiosity and intellectual engagement. Each piece of furniture is carefully designed and hand crafted with children in mind, and uses only natural materials to further emphasize the concept of bringing the nature indoors. Children are taught to respect both the indoor and outdoor environment and are encouraged to be respectful and thoughtful towards each other, their teachers and their community.

We are licensed to accommodate children from 30 months to 5 years of age, and have a maximum class size of 8 children – you can be assured your child will receive the specialized attention he or she needs. We offer a variety of programs held both in the mornings and afternoons to better suit your busy schedules.
It is our belief that children’s imagination, creativity, and ability to learn is achieved best through play based activities that encourage hands on exploration. As the teacher at Sprouting Minds Preschool, it is my role to encourage, and inspire each child’s innate passion for learning. This is achieved by observing and listening closely to the interests of each child, and offering age appropriate activities that further explore and promote curiosity and deeper interests.
