Birthdays are celebrated in a unique way at Sprouts. The names of the 12 months are kept around the cake and the child holds a globe and walks around stopping at every month to share an anecdote. This process helps the child understand that he is now a year older just like the earth which revolves around the sun. It is also a beautiful time to cherish all the milestones that the child has accomplished in the past year. The child then cuts the cake with his parents and shares it with his friends and teachers at school.
In the Elementary environment the child not only tells us what he has been up to for the past year, but actually makes a timeline chart where he tells his friends his story from the time he was born. History is also woven into Birthday celebrations!
