*****FIVE STARS***** I had been driving by the MindBloom School on Rhode Island Ave. for two years waiting for my daughter to be old enough to go to this school. I imagined my baby learning Mandarin and coming home and painting Chinese Calligraphy but when she was old enough to attend Summer Camp ... See More
My daughter receives Mindbloom Spanish services as an aftercare program at her school twice a week and we've been beyond pleased. She has articulated that she loves the class saying things like "Spanish is my favorite", "Do I have Spanish today?" and "Look what I made today!". We have also overhea... See More
I have been very happy with the immersion program that Mindbloom is offering at my daughter's school - I even have started encouraging other parents to join the program!
It had been three years since my kid was in a bilingual daycare, so I was not sure whether she would be able to pick it up aga... See More
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
Really happy with Mindbloom summer camp. We enrolled our 5 year old and 3 year old for the summer spanish immersion program. Not only did they gain in their spanish language ability but also learned some arabic and chinese. In addition, our 5 year old actually learned a surprising amount of math... 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
My husband and I were looking for a program so that our 2-year-old son could start socializing and make some friends. A family friend of ours has a 3-year-old daughter who attends MindBloom Preschool, and highly recommended it for our son. After taking a tour of the school, we enrolled our son part-... See More
My daughter was a scholar at Mindblooms for PreK-3 and she has truly blossomed into a critical thinker that is caring, self-driven and has a zeal for learning. I was beyond satisfied with the quality of education that she received at Mindblooms. The school leadership is great and the teachers are ... 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. The staff is one of a kind! They are caring individuals who are extremely passionate about their work. The d... See More
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).
Before reading, please keep in mind that I am extremely picky about language immersion education. My longterm scholastic goal for my child, is fluency and... more
