SOUTHWEST COMMUNITY CENTER

SPROUT ACADEMY at southwest community center ENROLLMENT AND REGISTRATION Enrolling now for the 2017–2018 school year. $35 non-refundable enrollment fee due at registration For more information please contact our Preschool Coordinator: Tim Haberman at 503-823-2847 | Tim.Haberman@portlandoregon.gov.

Educational Preschool 2018-19 Portland Parks & Recreation offers exceptional programs city wide! Registration for the 2018-19 school year begins in February 2018. Check with your local community center for details.

2017–2018 EDUCATIONAL PRESCHOOL About the program The Sprout Academy was proudly introduced as Southwest Community Center’s educational preschool in the spring of 2009. At that time, we offered a pilot Pre-Kindergarten class with just 6 students to start. Today, we provide environmentally-focused early childhood education for ages 3 and 4. The Sprout Academy is offered exclusively at Southwest Community Center. Philosophy Our teaching philosophy is children learn through play. Learning through play encourages children to build a strong social foundation for their future. A sustainable philosophy of education focused in both ecological and social consciousness coupled with learning through play engages children in interactions with the natural world in an open-ended way allowing their curiosity to take root and imagination take flight. With the magic of our wonderful Gabriel Park on-site and the utility of our community garden plot, we strive to open young minds to independent thinking and creativity. What is a Green Preschool? In spring of 2010, the Sprout Academy became certified Eco-Healthy by the Oregon Environmental Council. SWCC’s Director, the Preschool program manager, and teachers collaborated to pass a 30-point checklist and bring the classroom setting up to the OEC’s standards for an Eco-Healthy Child Care. From the paint on the walls, to the cleaning products we use, to the educational materials on the shelves, Sprout Academy is a safe place for your child to learn and play. In addition to the physical space being Eco-Healthy, instructors are role models and lead by example to teach students the importance of nature, ecology and community to build a future sustainable life. They teach simple concepts of sustainability and how we can each do our part. To learn more, visit the Oregon Environmental Council’s website on Eco-Healthy Child Care programs at OEConline.org. Environment The Sprout Academy is held at Southwest Community Center in beautiful Gabriel Park. Our classroom is a warm, comfortable, cheerful space with lots of natural materials and lots of light. The space offers important safety features such as a child's size bathroom toilet within the room and an adjacent courtyard. The courtyard is an alternative to 'structured' play; we have added loose elements from nature to foster creative, imaginative play. The outdoor space also features Woolly Garden pockets for each class to tend as well as large natural planter boxes that the classes care for. Away from the center, the surrounding green-scape of Gabriel Park is the perfect setting for daily educational nature walks and seasonal outdoor lessons. We also have our very own Community Garden plot that has been a valuable resource as an outdoor classroom. Sprout's 3s and 4s students visit and tend to their garden throughout the year.

Lap lanes are designated according to a swimmer’s speed: slow, medium, and fast. Look at the yellow markers at the end of the pool to find your appropriate lane.
