Beansprouts was founded in 1980 and serves children between the ages of 1.9 to 9. From its beginnings as a cooperative preschool in a single classroom, Beansprouts has grown into a significant neighborhood resource for children and their families. We offer a comprehensive program which promotes physical, emotional, social and cognitive development.
Our classrooms belong to the children and our teachers serve as guides and mentors. It's a place to share in children's experiences, celebrate their families, and reflect their interests. Beansprouts teachers guide our children with insight, skill and enthusiasm. Our thoughtfully selected faculty provides a safe, caring and supportive environment to help children flourish. We believe in building children's authentic self-esteem, both through the mastery of problem solving and communication skills, and through the development of friendships in a warm community setting. At Beansprouts, children spend their days playing and sharing in a structured environment designed to stimulate their curiosity and build on successful experiences. Our children learn through hands-on engagement and are encouraged to express themselves. "Use your words" and "you have good ideas" are phrases that teachers commonly share with the children.
Sue Weinstein, Founder, was our very first teacher and worked as the head teacher from opening day through June 1989. She now serves as the Executive Director.
Caryn Klein-Cardieri joined the Beansprouts family in September of 1985. Caryn started as an assistant teacher and now serves as our Educational Director. Caryn plays an integral role in developing the curriculum-rich, activity-filled Beansprouts program.
We hope your child will join the Beansprouts tradition.
