MEDIA ALERT: Kosair Charities to grant $1,000,000 to Sproutlings Pediatric Day Care and Preschool

WHAT: Kosair Charities helps enhance the health and wellbeing of children by delivering financial support for healthcare, research, education, social services, and child advocacy. Helping all children realize their potential while overcoming obstacles is part of their core values. Sproutlings Pediatric Day Care & Preschool at the Kosair Charities Center is dedicated to the integration of children of all abilities in an environment that fosters learning, play and growth. Made possible by a multi-year grant totaling $1,000,000, Sproutlings recently opened four new preschool and pre-K classrooms and a multipurpose room, allowing 26 additional students to be served. Renovation recently began on the existing area to increase services and capacity for 50 additional students, also possible thanks to this grant.

WHY: Sproutlings Pediatric Day Care & Preschool was created in 2010 as a one-of-a-kind center in the Louisville area that offers an integrated program for both special needs and typical children. It is the only Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) center in the region, providing on-site nursing care and therapy services. Since opening, the program witnessed a 360 percent increase in the number of medically fragile children served prompting the need to expand and grow to continue to meet the needs of students.
