Application Process

STEP 1: Watch the virtual tour and review our website.

STEP 2: Find our tuition page and schedule options. If you plan to use Crystal Stairs, apply with them directly, as soon as possible. Their wait list can be long.

STEP 3: Fill out the application. Application fees aren't due until 2/1, after our open houses.

STEP 4: RSVP for an open house. Adult only open houses include a tour of the classrooms and are a great way to ask questions you couldn't find answers to on the website. Family play open houses are outside only and a terrific way to invision your child in our space. You are welcome to both. Our open houses are informal. We have shared our formal "tour" information on the website. The open houses help you connect and get a feel for who we are.

STEP 5: Pay your application fee by Feb 1

Enrollment offers go out beginning March 1st.

VIRTUAL TOUR:

Bloom is a constructivist school inspired by Reggio Emilia with a strong mission to return nature back to childhood. We are grounded in social-emotional learning and conscious parenting philosophies.

In our rich environment you can expect to see giggles and messy play, curiosity and problem solving, comfortable routine and novel explorations. Children spend most of their time outdoors interacting freely with each other and pursuing cognitive curiosity.

Teachers support children by creating engaging and varied enviroments that engage the whole child. We observe children's play and look for opportunities to deepen their understanding and develop curiosity, creativity, problem solving, persistence and communication. Our ratio of 8:1 allows children to be meaningfully supported.

Children's pursuits lead to collaboration in projects between children, teachers and our larger community.

We believe that today's learning needs to focus on how to think, not what to think. As we allow time for children to develop these skills, we see the process unfold.
