Sprouted Child Care & Early Education Now Open!

This month, our Wilmette child center officially reopened as Sprouted Child Care & Early Education, by One Hope United!

Sprouted celebrated its grand opening Tuesday, July 27th. Parents, children, staff, and new and old neighbors and friends were invited to tour the new center at 3201 Old Glenview Road, as well as participate in a variety of fun, interactive activities. The special event featured healthy refreshments, a flower planting activity and an official ribbon cutting ceremony. There was even a fire truck and police cruiser on site for kids to explore!

 

While the name and address are new, Sprouted has planted deep roots in the Wilmette community for more than 30 years and has served the education and child care needs of thousands of North Shore families.

This new center has been redesigned from the ground up with little learners in mind, and its modern, nature-themed décor and unique design elements make every day a discovery waiting to happen.

“Thank you for seeing the value in our program,” said Sprouted director Kristin Pettice as she prepared to cut the ribbon with her students. “We are just ecstatic to start this new chapter as Sprouted.” Kristin and the students were joined by OHU Chief Operation Officer, Margret Vimont, and Julie Yusim, Executive Director of the Wilmette/Kenilworth Chamber of Commerce in Wilmette.

Great fun was had by all and everyone was very excited to offically welcome Sprouted to the neighborhood!
