Enrichment enhances the Blossom Station experience for parents and children alike! Throughout the year there are exciting events, regular programs, community outreach, and more.
Back to School Night
Art in Bloom
A variety of enrichment specialists enhance our curriculum with music, storytelling and puppetry, science, and movement on a regular basis.
Science teacher, Steve Lechner, creates a hands-on science program for the Preschool Division. Sessions are designed to instill a sense of wonder and excitement about the scientific and natural world. His experiments, projects, collections, literature, puppets, a little bit of imagination, and a lot of humor bring many “Oohs” and “Aahs” from the children and teachers.
Exercise and Movement
Fitness is key to wellness in children and adults. Through a variety of activities and games, Be Ahead of the Game and their coaches teach the Preschool and Toddler Divisions gross motor skills, teamwork, social skills, hand-eye coordination, and so much fun.
Musician, Hugh Hanley, thrills the Toddler and Preschool Divisions with music, instruments, puppets, and more on a regular basis.
Lorraine Shedoudi comes to the center once a month to share yoga with the Toddler and Preschool Divisions.
We also have an assortment of “music entertainers” visit to help us celebrate holidays and the children enjoy singing and dancing with these various musicians.
Children learn by doing. Community Outreach provides each child with an opportunity to learn how to care for others in need of food, clothing, and comfort.
In November, we provide children and their families the opportunity to donate non-perishable items to Open Table, a food pantry in Maynard. The children decorate bags and boxes for these non-perishable items.
In December, we participate in the Wish Project by collecting hats, mittens and scarves for underserved children. The children decorate boxes for these donations to be collected in.
Just a quick note to thank you for all that you and your staff do to educate and enrich my child and his peers. Blossom feels safe and inviting, starting with Teri’s welcoming presence, the cheerful seasonal decorations, and the cute slideshow and photos of the children. The interactive learning spaces, indoors and out, are fun to step into and observe from during drop off and pick up. The teachers we’ve had since Wylie have all been fantastic and dedicated to their efforts, and the enrichment activities and additional support staff have been much appreciated.
We are very happy to have Blossom Station as part of our village :).”
