Sprout - Enrichment for the Gifted Child



About Sprout

Hello and welcome to Sprout! Our mission is to help gifted children discover their talents and become comfortable using them. We hope to enrich the lives of Chicago's gifted youth through socialization with like-minded children and planned activities with experts in a variety of fields, to stimulate and engage your child’s mind in many diverse disciplines and provide the freedom to explore their interests in a risk-free environment.
