Welcome to Little Sprouts Early Childhood Center

Thank you for your interest in Early Childhood programming at Little Sprouts! Central United Methodist Church is proud to have been offering fully licensed programming opportunities for Waterford and its surrounding communities for more than 50 years.  Our 2022-23 school year programs will include once-weekly Family Play Groups (for families with children ages birth through three) and tuition-based Preschool for Threes (3 by Sept. 1, 2022) and Fours (4 by Sept. 1, 2022). All currently enrolled families will have the opportunity to register for 2022-23 programming the week of March 14-18, and open registration for new families will begin at our Open House on Saturday, March 19 @ 10 a.m.-Noon!

Please contact us if you have any questions about registering your Little Sprout, or if you would like to arrange a tour of our facility--We would be happy to make arrangements to meet with you!
