At Blossom Heights we believe children learn naturally through play experiences — either self directed, peer directed or adult guided — children who are provided extended time for exploration and play will gain critical thinking necessary to meet and surpass developmental milestones.
Our play-based model provides thoughtfully planned indoor and outdoor environments that allows teachers to seek out what interests the children. Building on their strengths and curiosities they 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 giving them more opportunity to learn and concentrate. Self-directed play leads to self-harmony which leads to a higher ability to learn and retain knowledge.
Blossom Heights Child Development Center was founded in 2010 and continues to be owned and operated by Linda Draper along with her passionate staff.
