An Exceptional Preschool
Blossom Heights offers a play based, Reggio Emilia inspired curriculum for children ages 12 months through Kindergarten, providing quality child care before and after the school day program. What makes us exceptional is the creativity that comes from learning what the children are interested in, the amount of time that children are encouraged to spend outdoors, the plethora of materials that children have access to and the self-guided discovery. All of these things separate Blossom Heights from most preschools. It’s what makes our curriculum exceptional.
Learning Through Play
Children learn naturally through play experiences — either self directed, peer directed or adult guided — but children who are provided extended time for exploration and play will gain critical thinking necessary to meet and surpass developmental milestones.
A play-based model is a thoughtfully planned environment that allows for the teachers to seek out and find what interests the children and what strengths the children are showing, then building on these interests and strengths to assist children in making the best possible choices each day.
Children who are given more opportunities to learn through play in the early years are better able to navigate social and emotional issues that arise later in elementary school and hence, are better able to learn and concentrate. Self-directed play leads to self-harmony which leads to a higher ability to learn and retain knowledge.
