"Initial String Sprouts research results show great promise. The program builds connections between children and parents; motor skills; receptive vocabulary; and the executive function skills of initiative, flexibility, and attention. All of these skills will provide an advantage to young children in school and beyond."
– Jovanna Rohs, Director of
Early Learning and Head Start , MARC
