Ali Maanum & Matt Bottkol - Owners & Lead Teachers
Welcome! I am Ali Maanum and I opened Little Sprouts in May of 2013. My husband Matt and I are both teachers at Little Sprouts and absolutely love what we do. We are passionate about teaching, and making a difference in every family that we meet. My past experience working with children includes teaching in a licensed accredited daycare program, assisting & teaching children on the autism spectrum, and leading small preschool classrooms. I received my Early Childhood Administrative Credential in 2016, and we continue working towards bettering our program. Matt quickly became a favorite teacher amongst the children at Little Sprouts due to his energy and charisma! He continues to bring education and fun to a new level.
When I'm not teaching, I'm learning new cooking techniques/recipes and stretching my skills in graphic design & illustration. Matt and I both love to travel and have spent a lot of time in Central America, Europe, and Vietnam. We love to camp, and stay active, Matt is a strong long distance runner and is working up to running a 100 mile race!
We welcomed our first child Theo into the world in August 2017!
