Elliott's Classes: Kids in Bloom Preschool Alternative

0

Kids in Bloom is an alternative preschool program established by Elliott's Classes. For over 20 years, Elliott's Classes has been educating children using the Elliott Method, developed by Elliott Cortez, Ph.D., which introduces children ages 18 months to 5 years to the concept of separation in a nurturing environment. The curriculum incorporates movement science with child development theory to encourage physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.

The staff at Kids in Bloom believe that a child's core skills should be nourished in a warm and fun environment. Experienced instructors are trained to look at the world from a child's perspective while facilitating a gentle separation process. Over either a 2.5- or 4-hour program, children are guided through enriching activities including circle time, music, creative play, gym, art, gardening, and story time.

Epiphany Community Nursery School

Since 1975, the core philosophy of Epiphany Community Nursery School (ECNS) has centered on positive self-image, curiosity, a strong educational curriculum, creativity, and independence. The staff values exploration and asking questions; they want children to see learning as a process. Children are encouraged to express themselves in a variety of ways, through different media, movement, and language skills. There is a regular, constant sequence of daily activities and a clear order in the arrangement of materials and equipment to help foster children’s independence. The environment and program at ECNS are carefully planned to meet the needs of the young child for play, socialization, and individual attention. The curriculum is flexible and recognizes the importance of each child as a distinct personality, each developing at his/her own pace. ECNS is an interdenominational, melting pot school for all children ages 2 to 5 years old, regardless of race or religion.
