Welcome to Sprouts Childcare Center!

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you as you explore our facility and exceptional team of educators. We aspire every day to provide a positive atmosphere and an enriching environment for your child. As you join our family, we hope you and your family will find that Sprouts is a wonderful introduction to the joys of learning. The purpose of Sprouts Childcare Center, which was opened as an expansion of the original Sprouts in Finksburg, is to provide Westminster and it’s surrounding neighborhoods including commuters from Littlestown and Route 97, a high quality learning environment for Infants, Preschoolers and School-Age children. Our philosophy of “Educating from the Ground Up” is based on the knowledge that child development is divided into four key areas: Social and Emotional, Physical, Cognitive and Language. We use developmentally appropriate practice to make sure that each child’s needs are met.

Sprouts is licensed through the Maryland State Department of Education to provide the following programs:

Infant and Toddler:
We know that the first two years of life are critical to a child’s development. During this delicate period, children are discovering who they are and how others respond to them.


As they learn to understand others and express their ideas more efficiently, the environment for a preschooler becomes larger and richer. In addition to this growth, preschoolers are changing physically and gaining strength, agility and coordination.


Children five to 12 years of age can be enrolled in our Before and After-school program. Transportation is provided by the Carroll County Board of Education Transportation Services to and from Charles Carroll Elementary School. Snacks, Homework Help and other extracurricular activities are planned and implemented through this program. Summer Camp and School’s Out Days are other ways our older children can enjoy being here at Sprouts.
