The Lowell Afterschool Program is very happy with the classes offered through the MIndBloom program. The children look forward to their “Spanish Clubhouse” minicourse day.

My son was going to a day care and when he was 2 and half years old, I started looking for a better learning experience for him. I occasionally drove by Mind Bloom Pre-School and noticed their billboard so I figured, I should give them a call. When I called to ask if they had space, I was only think... See More
My twin boys were with Mindbloom for nine months in the Mandarin-track program. I was impressed by the teachers who were native speakers from mainland China, and also by the curriculum which integrated science, arts, and even music into their language and intellectual development. The school was l... See More

My daughter receives Mindbloom Spanish services as an aftercare program at her school twice a week and we've been beyond pleased.

Before MindBloom, I tried to teach my daughter basics in mandarin and have brought her mandarin language programs in the area with little success. She did not want to learn from me and was bored in other classes. Since starting MindBloom, her mandarin language skills has exploded exponentially ... See More
As the European-decent parent of Chinese-American children, it means so much to us to have MindBloom available to our three-year-old through Amedon-Bowen. The curriculum is practical and the projects are fun for the kids. The practice words and pronunciations shared with parents helps us all engage ... See More
We really wanted to reinforce what our son had learned in Spanish class at school last year, especially because his class will only take Spanish in the spring this year. So we signed him up for the aftercare program to have some continuity and he says he likes it and is always eager to show us his ... See More

My 5-year old daughter had a wonderful experience at Mindbloom! She was initially shy & nervous about being in an unfamiliar camp, but she had a great day making new friends, speaking new languages and especially making piragua! She told me that she loved taking a nature walk and felt better when a ... See More

We have been the benefactors of our granddaughter's education through Mindbloom Preschool. We were happy to find a school with all the educational perks that is usually offered in a “a la cart” forum. The Spanish and Mandarin languages were more reason to opt-in on an educational journey desi... See More
"When I looked around at child care options, none of them compared to MindBloom. Now that my daughter has been through a full year, I can say firsthand that my expectations were far exceeded.

Wonderful school. Great staff and director. I wish every little one could start off with this type of language experience!
Share your review in TWO easy steps! Step 1: Copy Review Text My son was going to a day care and when he was 2 and half years old, I started looking for a better learning experience for him. I occasionally drove by Mind Bloom Pre-School and noticed their billboard so I figured, I should give them a call. When I called to ask if they had space, I was only thinking I will probably get a place next year. I was lucky to have found one spot in the middle of the year. I enrolled my son at Mind Bloom immediately, hopeful that they offer an engaging early education experience. My son and I were not disappointed. My son joined the Spanish immersive program. On top of his exposure to learning a new language, activities like music class, visits to the museums, the market and other field trips enriched his experience.The after care was also affordable and engaging. In fact, the aftercare gave opportunity to my son to pick up on more languages (Mandarin and Arabic). Him coming back excited singing and counting in Mandarin was a pleasant surprise. More importantly, I liked how much personal attention MindBloom staff gave to the kids. They were also open to inform me in detail about how my son did which was a huge plus compared to my previous experience of generic answers. I have great admiration and appreciation for the director Ms. Susan. Ms. Susan is a passionate and hardworking person who loves what she does and always tries to do right. Ms. Susan is responsive and always informed. I have always felt assured that my son was in good care. My son left Mind Bloom to benefit from public school. I hope he can come back in the summer breaks. -- Ketsela T
Mandarin, Spanish and Arabic 90%+ immersion, mixed age, full day preschool programs. Classrooms are very spacious, ratios very small (currently 4:1 in my son's Mandarin class). The Mandarin teachers are excellent, several students are native speakers as well. For small child to truly learn chinese, this is the next best thing to being homeschooled in a chinese family. I researched MANY mandarin immersion preschools before picking this one, the only negative is no meals provided. Also, aftercare is usually in Mandarin, bur sometimes Arabic, or Spanish.
Had our daughter here where she made a number of friends. Staff cared well for her. Building is not as secure as I would prefer but not a serious issue (yet).
