To provide a safe, loving environment where young children access quality early care and educational experiences to help them grow to their fullest potential, and where families build enriching, long-lasting relationships.
Sweet Spirits’ early education program prepares children and families for Kindergarten and the future beyond. As a childcare center in Jackson, Wyoming, we provide a unique educational approach through our blended Nature Explore and Waldorf-inspired curriculum, applicable to birth through Pre-K. The day is structured with an emphasis on schedules and routines. Play is both child-directed and teacher-led and varies in length and method of play. Teachers use picture cues to accompany the written schedule and update it throughout the day as activities unfold. The children have ample opportunities outdoors and indoors to explore science, art, music, yoga, dance, skiing, bike riding, fishing, cooking, hiking, and park play! Older children will take field trips to the library, wildlife and children’s museums, grocery stores, and other local locations like ski resorts and playgrounds, with parent permission. We get outside and DO STUFF! We invite special guests from the fire, health, and police department to guide our children through valuable safety lessons, and smart decision making. Throughout the year, our children enjoy birthday celebrations and festive gatherings to bring everyone together and build a community around different cultures and experiences. Sweet Spirits creates memorable experiences in a positive and nurturing environment.
