NEWTON, NJ – New Jersey State Senator Steve Oroho recently paid a visit to the Little Sprouts Early Learning Center to read several of his favorite children’s books as part of Project Self-Sufficiency’s Celebrity Reader program. “Showing children a love for reading and learning new things is one of the most valuable traits we can instill in them,” commented Senator Oroho. “The ability to read and explore different books opens up a world of opportunities. Educators like those at Little Sprouts Early Learning Center that help lay this important foundation in children’s lives on a daily basis deserve an immense amount of credit. I look forward to playing whatever role I can in passing on a love for reading during my visit to Little Sprouts.”
The Little Sprouts Early Learning Center features separate classrooms for each age group, from infants through those entering pre-school. Fully-qualified teachers are available in each classroom and the child-teacher ratio adheres to or exceeds state standards. In addition to the sparkling classrooms, there is an all-purpose room for active indoor play and parent presentations, as well as a sick room for those children who may fall ill during the day. The center is equipped with two separate playgrounds, one for younger tots and one for older children. Each room has new equipment, as well as learning centers for dramatic play, computers, science, housekeeping, sand and water play, reading, and music.
