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.
