Parents

Bloom offers parents a stress free, eco-conscious child care option. From our nurturing infant room, that boasts a peaceful, safe environment, to our rigorous and welcoming preschool classes, Bloom provides the very best place for children to learn and grow. Parents can rest assured that while in care at Bloom, their child is receiving unconditional love and guidance from our team of passionate teachers. Our number one goal at Bloom is to maintain happy and healthy children and to remain a home away from home.

Communication

Bloom staff and parents maintain constant communication each day. Parents are provided with a LifeCubby account, providing instant access to each child’s daily activities and photos right from their phone! For more information about LifeCubby, please visit www.lifecubby.me.  At the end of the week, each child has a Friday Folder that is sent home with any artwork or additional paperwork. The folders are then returned each Monday. In addition, the director sends out an email every Friday, through LifeCubby summarizing the week and also sharing information about the week to come.  Parents and teachers are encouraged to keep constant communication about the children in care through their live chat within their LifeCubby application. They are also available by phone, email, conferences or just a simple chat. The directors are also available via phone, text, email or in person. Bloom keeps the parents abreast of all pertinent information and happenings.

Open Door Policy

Bloom maintains an open door policy for all parents. The staff at Bloom encourages and appreciates parent visits. Many parents enjoy being a part of our “Busy Ladybugs” volunteer program. This program allows parents to volunteer in their child’s class or other classrooms or simply help the teachers. Parents at Bloom should always feel warm and welcome when visiting our school.

Video Monitoring

Each and every classroom at Bloom is under video monitoring 24/7.

Monthly Family Night

Each month, Bloom hosts a family outing. These outings give families and children a chance to get to know each other and also help to support our local businesses. Family outings take place onsite at Bloom or at a local business. If you have any ideas for up and coming family outings, please feel free to email us at caseybloompg@gmail.com.
