My daughter has attended Sprout for 3+ years. Judy Wahl, as the owner/director has a deep commitment to the growth, development, nurture and understanding of the ‘gifted’ child. The topics and projects she selects for the program are incredibly dynamic and broad, creating true ‘fan favorites’ each and every week. My daughter is always excited to show me the ‘result’ of her weekly Sprout class. Through Sprout, she is offered opportunities to think and act and create in ways that are beyond the traditional public school/traditional curriculum. Sprout, by nature of its design, allows for her to truly ‘think’ like she actually does—that, in and of itself, is a gift!
Judy is always highly communicative and provides great detail in advance of what the children will be working on for the week. She is also available to provide extra support outside of Sprout through personal guidance, resource knowledge, etc to the families of gifted children. I find her an absolute delight and am truly thankful that she cares so profoundly for the concept of Sprout and for each and every child that attends.
“My daughter loved her years in the Sprout program to the point that she stayed on as a helper after she aged out. The activities sprout leads are the most innovative and engaging experiences, setting up challenging academic questions wrapped in games and hands-on projects. My daughter learned to love learning through the Sprout lens, a gift she will carry with her throughout her academic career.”
