About Bloom

Bloom Academy is a pre-kindergarten school located in Charlotte County Florida. We currently have two locations Punta Gorda and our newest location in Founders Square Babcock Ranch. Our schools are lead by former teachers and those with extensive childhood experience. We invite you to come by our main location in Punta Gorda and take a look around. The school was build specifically for our use. This allowed us to make the outdoor play areas as safe as the classrooms. The schools are cleaned every night without harsh chemicals. In fact we only use earth friendly and kid friendly cleaning products. Meals your children received here at our schools are well thought out, healthy and prepared on site. We even try to locally source as much as possible.

Each child we take care of is an individual. From understanding their personality to knowing what foods they enjoy. We also tailor the learning curriculum for each child, making sure they are developing good skills in an enjoyable environment. We want you to feel comfortable knowing your child is loved, and carefully looked after each day. Parents are encouraged to get involved with their children, asking questions and helping them to grow with basic knowledge and social skills before entering school.

I would rate Bloom more than 5 stars if I could!

I have two daughters that attend Bloom Academy Founder’s Square. My oldest is 6 and in Elementary School at BNS now. She has attended Bloom locations since she was 6 months old and the overall quality is outstanding at all locations. She still attends Bloom on school closures and camp days. She usually has Miss Marcy and Miss Jessica and they are loving, professional, and fun! My daughter raves about the activities and events planned and truly enjoys being at Bloom. My youngest is currently a year old, in the Yellow Canaries classroom. Miss Shannon and Miss Amanda are AMAZING! They are diligent, supportive, and super at multi-tasking! They have helped with every milestone my baby has had and supported her growth tremendously! Every classroom at Bloom uses a tablet with interactive apps that allow you to stay updated on your child’s day – including pictures and videos. The teachers are very quick and responsive when you need to speak with them. The staff in general is friendly, respectful, and present their team as a well-oiled machine. The classrooms and building in general is clean, organized, warm, and welcoming. The curriculum is engaging and fun for all ages, including the school-aged children. The office staff, Leigh Ann (FS director), and Casey (founder/owner), are professional, loving, and truly strive to meet the needs of my family’s needs. I would rate Bloom more than 5 stars if I could and I would choose them over and over again for my children’s learning facility!

We get updates on our children throughout the day

There aren’t enough words to say how much I love my kids going to Bloom. My kids never went to daycare and have always been with me as I have been blessed to be able to work from home. With that being said, PreK quickly approached and this mama was sad and afraid to see my oldest going to PreK already. As much as I wasn’t ready for him to go to school, there was nothing better than to see the look on his face when I picked him up from Bloom on his first day. He just started at the end of August and already he is more confident and outgoing. He loves school and he loves his teachers. Every day he lets me know how his day goes. He loved it so much we decided to bring our 4 year old there too. All of the staff are super friendly, welcoming and loving. The children there learn so much through song, play and interaction with their fellow classmates. I never have to worry while my kids are in the hands of the wonderful staff here. Another thing I absolutely love about Bloom is the app they use where we get updates on our children throughout the day. Messages, pictures, any kind of update comes straight to you. You even get updates for clocking them in and out. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. They are the absolute best and I know my kids are in the perfect hands for their mind and hearts there.

My Son And My Daughters Experience Has Been Great

My son and my daughters experience has been great here so far. My son is happy and is really enjoying being at Bloom. My daughter is enrolled in the aftercare program from school. There are cameras and coded doors which make me feel good about their safety. They just had this new location built, and moved from a few blocks away where they used to be. Beautiful building, always clean and great light in there. My son ALWAYS has something interesting to say about what he is learning.

Update 7/19/18:

I am still thrilled with Bloom! They focus on children, and not on it being a “business”. Everyone is always polite, and friendly. I feel completely at ease with my two children being here. I had a few nightmare experiences with other child care facilities. I wish I had found Bloom sooner, would have saved me a lot of worry.

Bloom Academy is my home away from home!

Bloom Academy is my home away from home! When starting here at Bloom I was nervous coming into a new environment but the staff and families made the transition a breeze. Over my first week here Bloom became more than just a new job but family. It is a very welcoming and easy going work environment. The director is very flexible with your scheduling and also very easy to get along with. I do not regret my decision and highly recommend anyone who loves children to come and make the change that I did.

I don’t have to worry about him being there

We love this school! the only thing I regret is not enrolling my son in here sooner. He gets excited everyday when it’s time to go and he always asks if he can come back everyday when I pick him up. He gets upset when it’s the weekend and he can’t go to school. I’m so happy to have found a place where I don’t have to worry about him being there, and I know he is well taken care of and happy.

Best Investment For Your Child’s Education

This school has done wonders for my girls. My daughters have come leaps and bounds from where they were two months ago, when they started. I highly recommend this school. Best investment for your child’s education. I was very nervous about my child starting kindergarten, but I tested her readiness level again and she is right on track. Hands down the best school they have been too. Planning on moving, but waiting to move until they both graduate from Bloom.

Our kids Teachers…go above and beyond!

I Can’t Believe The Difference In Her Confidence

My daughter was on the wait list for almost a year, now that she has started here I can’t believe the difference in her confidence in just a few short weeks. She comes home singing her ABC’s, counting and showing me how she’s writing her name. The staff is extremely welcoming and I LOVE getting pictures of her throughout the day. She literally runs down the hall to her class. What a great school, I’m so happy to have her here.

We absolutely love love love Bloom Academy!

We absolutely love love love Bloom Academy Punta Gorda Location !!!! If we could give it over 5 stars we totally would. My three littles go there and are always eager to go to school and love there teachers and friends. My son has special needs and they go above and beyond to make sure he’s happy there and comfortable. The communication is on point and the food they cook for the littles are absolutely amazing. We couldn’t of picked a better place for our children to attend and will be sad when they have to leave. Thank you Bloom for being the best second home to our kiddos and bringing such joy to our family. Love: The Lynch Family

They are very clean and take COVID serious

We have been so impressed by Bloom FS! The VPK program is filled with hands-on projects, songs, and community and character building. The staff is friendly, family focused, and truly make the effort to know each and every student. They are very clean and take COVID serious. My child cannot wait to go to school each morning! We love Bloom FS!

Absolutely love the app with pictures and daily updates!

Bloom isn’t your average “day care”. They’re more like extended family that loves your children like thier own. We have been at bloom for over 2 years now and we couldn’t be happier with our sons development and education while here. Miss Ashlee and Miss Lysette have been nothing short of amazing this year for my 4 year old. And Miss Shannon has made the transition of bringing my three month old in and going back to work full time so smooth and easy. Miss Leigh Ann and miss Bekah keep the daily operation running smoothly. We absolutely love the app with pictures and daily updates, as well as the teachers staying in touch with us to talk about new milestones or needs for both kids. These ladies are not just our care providers, they’re our friends and we are so thankful for them! We will continue to recommend Bloom Founders Square to anyone in need of a trustworthy, clean, educational place to take your children for care.

SEE WHAT OUR TEACHERS ARE SAYING…

When you walk through the doors of Bloom you can immediately sense the welcoming feel to the building and the staff is a major aspect of this. Being a part of the Bloom Tribe is amazing and has given me the opportunity to do something that I love: teaching children in a way that they can play and learn simultaneously. This team works diligently and dutifully to ensure that all of our littles are taken care of and are receiving the best care possible. Bloom provides a great atmosphere for staff to learn and grow right alongside the children. Come Bloom with us.

It is simple really; happy teachers, happy students.

I have worked in many preschools in the past 15 years. Bloom is the first ever to make me feel valued as an employee. And even though we are all here for the children, staff is reminded in so many different ways that they are important. From kind words, small tokens of appreciation, fun treats etc…they take every opportunity to let us know we are appreciated. Over the years this piece of the puzzle was always missing for me. This makes me keep wanting to be an amazing teacher for my students and makes coming to work everyday an absolute pleasure. It is simple really; happy teachers, happy students.

Teachers Genuinely Love Your Children

When I was looking for a school for my daughter, I wanted a safe place for her to go and a place that will teach and love her. FOUND IT! My husband and I chose Bloom with out a doubt. It’s a family oriented school and the staff and the teachers genuinely love your children. The children learn there. It not chaos when you pick up your child, they are actively engaged in an activity. My husband and I love having her there. She really has Bloomed since attending Bloom!

Recommend Bloom FS to any and everyone!

Our four year old started VPK at Bloom FS last year and not only is he thriving, but he loves school and adores the staff. As parents, we love Bloom FS and all of the staff too. Everyone is so friendly, great with our son, and the communication is outstanding. I would recommend Bloom FS to any and everyone!

Bloom amazed us from the very beginning!

We absolutely love Bloom Academy FS! All of the staff are amazing, wonderful, and so caring! It is so comforting to know your little ones are in such great care when they are dropped off here. Bloom amazed us from the very beginning with how clean, safe, and engaging the learning environment is. Our little one has a severe food allergy and the staff are beyond accommodating and knowledgeable about her needs. She has grown so much with the help of her amazing teachers. We are so thankful for the open communication and quality care they provide. We love getting daily pictures and updates on what they are working on in class. It makes a parent so happy to see how excited their little one is to go to school each day!

More than ‘just a daycare’ – THIS is the place!

Where to begin. We met Casey (owner) as she was hustling to finish the last touches on her second location in Babcock Ranch. My wife and I have two toddlers and live across the street and will be opening up a grooming shop in Babcock Ranch in 2021 in the new Publix Plaza – everything fell in line. Our son has special needs (speech) and a severe allergy to fire ants – they sprayed before our kids start and that was the very beginning of a beautiful relationship. Our children have thrived at Bloom and although our daughter isn’t in daycare right now due to COVID-19 (our choice), our son has been LOVING his Pre-K class. The staff is extremely helpful, loving, and the app they use to showcase pictures all day is great. During the pandemic, Casey and her staff have done EVERYTHING in line with the safety protocols during the pandemic and they always respond quickly to my wife and I if we have a question or concern. I couldn’t rate more than 5 stars, but I definitely would. If you are looking for more than ‘just a daycare’ – THIS is the place! They structure everything to run LIKE SCHOOL, preparing the kiddos for kindergarten and beyond. The Alvarez family LOVES Bloom Academy!
