Sprout is now accepting applications for the Spring after school program. Classes for students K-6 are Monday in Lincoln Square and Tuesday & Wednesday in Evanston. See the calendar for specific dates, times, and pricing.
Lauren opened Sprout in the summer of 2004 to fulfill a need for social and academic enrichment for Chicago's gifted children. Prior to Sprout she received a degree in elementary education from Purdue University and taught third grade at a private school in Lincoln Park.
Lauren is a former board member of the Chicago Gifted Community Center. Their mission is to facilitate emotional and educational support for gifted children and their families. For more information on upcoming events and free parent seminars see the Chicago Gifted Community Center website.
Judy has been an educator for more than 15 years, teaching at Blackbear and Roycemore School and tutoring for enrichment after school. She is also a proud mother of a gifted son who attends an RGC in Chicago. Judy is excited about using her teaching experience combined with her parenting to work with our Sprout kids and grow the program!
