About Us

Little Sprouts Academy was founded by Elena and Grayson Barbour in 2009 as an in-home daycare near San Diego State University. Elena and Grayson are very passionate about giving children an early start toward the love of learning and health.  As part of this philosophy, they incorporate Reggio inspired learning experiences and organic and natural foods into the curriculum. Additionally, they use natural and green cleaning products.  Parents loved Elena and Grayson’s approach to learning for their children and the number of applicants quickly outgrew their capacity. To meet this need, on January 22nd, 2013 the doors opened at the much larger Mission Valley location.

The Little Sprouts Academy’s mission is to provide a unique and enriching preschool experience through quality care, organic and healthy foods, and attention to detail. Here at Little Sprouts we want to change the perception of what “daycare” should be and to far exceed the expectations of parents. We believe that your child deserves the best care and attention and we want their earliest memories to be filled with happy and enriching experiences!
