Our Little Sprouts Sensory and Vegetable Gardens, insectary, and orchard provide ongoing integrated lessons in eco-systems, math, science, language, taking responsibility and teamwork to our children. We partner with the NCSU School of Design's Natural Learning Initiative and we are a member of The Edible Schoolyard Project.
We are a recipient of a Prevention of Obesity by Design (POD) three year grant funded through Smart Start and the John Rex Foundation and implemented through NLI. We have been chosen as a training site for other centers in early implementation of POD.
We are very mindful of the nutrition we provide our children. We only serve fresh, healthful (often organic) fruits and vegetables, and buy good quality whole foods to offer our children healthy eating choices and to provide "brain food" throughout the day. A morning and afternoon snack are served each day.
Selected to participate in the Wake County Smart Start Farm to ChildCare program!
Every day in the life of a preschooler is a wonderful, exciting opportunity to explore, create, play, learn, love and be loved. At Holly Springs Academy, we partner with each child as they explore every day’s possibilities through creative play, learn through both teacher and child-directed activities, and share their triumphs, challenges, and hugs with their teachers and friends alike... in a safe, secure and monitored setting.
All staff at HSA are passionate, experienced caregivers who will provide a nurturing, diverse and stimulating learning environment in which your child can grow, gain confidence and become self-reliant. We will work very hard to support the development of every child’s YOU-niqueness!
