Early Sprouts, Cultivating Healthy Food Choices in Young Children

In late 2011, The Ark implemented an exciting preschool nutrition and garden-based program in which each child in our preschool programs (Green, Purple, and Orange rooms) are invited to participate, along with their families.

The goal of the Early Sprouts program is to increase children's preference for vegetables through the experience of helping to grow, harvest, prepare, and enjoy!

Children explore vegetables with in-class, food based activities, as well as participate in tending and caring for the classroom garden located in our preschool playground from spring to fall.
