Welcome to Bloom From The Heart's 2023-2024 Program!

New program starts September 5, 2023 and ends June 7, 2024.  Click HERE to register.

Bloom From The Heart is Bloom's Montessori and Waldorf inspired play-based educational program for preschool aged children* where the focus is on learning through PLAY! 

*Minimum age accepted is age 3 and must be fully potty trained. 

Bloom From The Heart utilizes a Montessori and Waldorf inspired curriculum that takes additional inspiration from traditional methodologies to offer a one-of-a-kind curriculum that embraces the best of all three worlds. Curated by Bloom’s owner, a Montessori trained educator in early elementary, the curriculum covers the five key areas of a typical Montessori preschool in the areas of Practical Life, Sensory, Mathematics, Literacy, and Culture, and the key areas of a Waldorf preschool in the areas of Exploring Nature, Celebrating the Seasons, and embracing Imagination and Fantasy through creative play and storytelling. 

What is the difference between Montessori and Waldorf?

While both are very similar in many ways, especially in the importance of a multi sensory approach to learning, being play based, and integrating practical life skills into daily rhythm, one key difference is that Montessori embraces real life experiences whereas Waldorf embraces imagination and fantasy. We believe that both are equally important in developing the whole child and so integrate aspects of both into our curriculum and our play environment (i.e. the mini kitchen and washer set are more “Montessori”, whereas the fairy wings and play silks are more “Waldorf”). 

What is the typical day like?

Our daily rhythm is developed to keep the children engaged and moving throughout the day to different areas of the classroom and play space, including outdoors, to maximize movement and socialization opportunities while allowing them safe independence choices and a range of topics and disciplines to pique their interests and nurture their curiosities. We have daily specials in art, music, movement, sensory, and dance, opening and closing circles where we review the calendar, weather, celebrate seasons, holidays, and birthdays, group unit study, individualized 1:1 lessons and independent work time, snack, lunch, and indoor and outdoor play. We also enjoy several parent-participation field trips and holiday performances throughout the year that align with the season or monthly unit study topic that allows for lots of community building and bonding opportunities for the families. 

What are we not?

Although our program offers a wealth of educational opportunities and guides your child towards a successful transition into a formal preschool or kindergarten program, prospective families should be reminded that we are not an accredited preschool or daycare, and are not seeking to be such. We are happily offering an alternative to traditional daycare and preschool environments where your child's unique self can be nurtured and grow while "being a kid". Learning through play allows us to foster a natural love for learning through the child's curiosity, creativity, independence, and building trusting and loving human relationships.

BFTH runs on an annual schedule, starting on September 5, 2023 and ending on June 7, 2024. 

There are scheduled holiday breaks during the year (exact calendar to be provided). 


While our Montessori approach offers us the opportunity to meet your child where they are developmentally and provide a personalized approach to their experience, given our limited resources as a private non-accredited program, please understand we are not equipped to support children who may not yet be ready for this program. Some of the key milestones we would need for your child to have met in order to have their best experience in our program are: ability to follow the routine of the day with focus; ability to understand keeping hands to oneself/gentle interaction with peers; ability to work with materials as they are meant to be used; basic understanding of shapes and colors; readiness to learn; ability to be separated from caregivers (while understanding all children have days where they struggle and need extra comforting)

Your child must be fully potty trained to attend BFTH.  What does it mean to be FULLY potty trained? Children must be capable of completing ALL bathroom steps with little to no assistance, and are able to remain dry throughout the day. We realize occasional accidents happen even for fully potty-trained children, but the key word is “occasional”. If we find we are continuously having to assist your child with the bathroom usage or they are having frequent accidents, we will require them to pause attendance until they are a bit more ready.


Regular Day Program: 9am-1pm

Extended Day Program: 9am-3pm

Before care from 8am and after care until 6pm is available.

As we follow a progressive curriculum and robust unit study, please note your child's progress and benefit will be greater the more days they attend the program. We recommend at least the 3 days a week program but realize not everyone's ready or able to commit, so the 2 days a week option is also available. 5 days a week is ideal for maximum benefit from the program.

* 2 DAYS A WEEK (T, Th)

* 3 DAYS A WEEK (M, W, F)


Please note due to ensuring a balanced headcount and for planning and scheduling purposes, the two and three day program dates are not adjustable.  If you wish to switch to a different schedule or need to unenroll for any reason, please provide at least a 2 week notice, and any unpaid future invoices will be cancelled (or refunded for any pre-payments made).

All scheduled holidays and up to 5 snow days are accounted for in the annual tuition rate. That means payments are due in full regardless of holidays and up to 5 snow days. Should we have over 5 closures due to weather, credits will be applied for days missed due to Bloom weather closures.

Credit is available for up to two vacation weeks (10 days) or other scheduled absences with a two week minimum notice provided of the expected days out.

Unplanned absences and sick days are not refundable or credited. Make up days are not available for any missed days.


Payment plans are available as a courtesy (payable weekly or monthly). By registering for this program, you have an annual tuition that is expected to be payable in full by the end of the program (prorated for late registrations). Payment plans simply provide the convenience of weekly or monthly billing for you to incrementally pay down your tuition balance if you desire which means you are invoiced on a regular schedule regardless of holidays or sick days, with the exception of planned vacations, as outlined in detail above. 


Registration Fee: $50 registration fee is non-refundable for any cancellations made after submission of the registration fee and your child's participation in the program is confirmed. 

Cancellations: Any cancellations that are made within 1 week of program start or any no-shows are non-refundable except for extenuating circumstances (i.e. unforeseen illness). Once the program is in session, if you need to unenroll for any reason, please provide at least a 2 week notice, and any unpaid future invoices will be cancelled (or refunded for any pre-payments made).
