About Our School

At Blooming Garden Preschool:
Our experienced and loving teachers create a welcoming environment filled with enriching activities to engage a child's curiosities. With low student-to-teacher ratios, we provide a close-knit atmosphere, encouraging friendships and growth.

 

Our classes follow the Portland Public School calendar, beginning in September and ending in June. Our daily routine includes structured activities and open-ended opportunities for creative play. We also offer a fun variety of summer camps available to our registered students.

  • Morning Meeting: Thematic lessons, songs & stories
