Mountain Sprouts Preschool is dedicated to providing students with a holistic, natural, and loving environment that is conducive to learning and encourages reverence and respect for all living things in our world.

Located in historic Telluride, our preschool is conveniently situated two blocks north of Main Street in the St. Patrick's Church Parish Hall on East Galena Avenue. It is a beautiful classroom with lots of natural light and a spacious play yard. The classroom is centrally located providing the children with the opportunity to enjoy nature walks along the river trail, scenic adventures on the gondola, community investigations, and  fun-filled days at Town Park.

Mountain Sprouts Preschool is a learning environment for children ages 3 through 5 years old. We believe that the role of the child at this early age is to experience the world first hand and maintain a sense of wonder. 

Our goal is to teach the children naturally by working through the heart not the head. Our curriculum is therefore structured to nurture the whole child by providing hands-on learning and sensory motor experiences that lay the foundation for further learning and intellectual and social development. 

We provide an environment where children are encouraged and supported in integrating, understanding and expanding their life experiences through five main disciplines – creative play, community, the natural world, practical work, and the arts.

Each teacher strives to create a supportive and challenging classroom atmosphere to encourage students to participate.

Mountain Sprouts Preschool also draws from an elaborate pool of talented community resources to act as visiting instructors, including experts in art, music, drama, yoga, karate, and Spanish.
