Little Sprouts

Nurturing growth and development in children and families

Schedule of Events

Who are we?

Little Sprouts is a program designed to provide families with infants through
preschool age support and education. The goal of our program is to offer this
service for all families throughout Lafayette County and improve the quality
and safety of family life.

We are dedicated to providing educational tools ranging from...
developmental milestones • safety • vaccination information
healthy eating in the family • support services in our community
and many more!


Parents and children will enjoy a fun and creative social activity. Each
playgroup meeting we will discuss an educational topic over a range of ages to
foster development and educational growth. Our primary playgroup will meet
Tuesdays from 9–11 a.m. at the Dora Ritter Wellness Center gymnasium at
627 Main Street in Darlington. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Family Nights

We will also be facilitating outreach family nights at area
community locations as determined by availability and attendance. For
