Susan Leger Ferraro is a self-made success story. After starting her career as an early childhood care provider at age 17 in her parent's house, she has built a network of successful childcare centers that provide high quality education and care for children and their families. Susan founded Little Sprouts, Inc. in 1982 to provide education for young children that revolves around literacy and attends to children's physical, cognitive and social-emotional development. Since that time Susan has started three other companies including Imajine That which offers educational play and developmentally appropriate activities for children and their families, and partners with communities of high need of services to provide extended day education programs for pre-K-first grade-aged children. Susan is the Founder of Little Sprouts Inc., CEO of Imajine That, Inspirational Ones, and Peace Love and Happiness, LLC. Under Susan's leadership Little Sprouts Inc. received $10 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Education Early Reading First Preschool Center of Excellence Award three times.
