Early childhood education is vital in the preparation for elementary school. At this stage in their development it is critical to provide children with teachers and educators who are dedicated to their safety and well-being. This, coupled with the best teaching practices, will prepare the ground for your child to grow into a well-adjusted individual ready for a lifetime of learning and personal growth.
Here at the Bloom Learning Centre, we promote constructive, activity-based learning with the focus on a developmentally appropriate academic curriculum. Our emphasis is on providing a solid educational foundation through fun activities with an emphasis on cognitive development that enhances language and literacy, social skills and creativity.
Health, safety and security of the children in our care is of paramount importance. To this end, we have comprehensive policies to ensure the protection and welfare of everyone using the Centre.
Bloom Learning Centre has invested heavily in new equipment of a high international standard to develop the premier playschool in the Seven Mile Beach area. We enjoy one of the best indoor activities areas of any preschool in the Cayman Islands, with a large play area equipped with slides, toys and activities, as well as a secure and sheltered outdoor area where children can enjoy being outdoors in complete safety.
Our facility is designed and functions around the needs of children to be children. Your child will thrive in this child-centered environment, surrounded by other children in a learning atmosphere of socialization and play. At Bloom Learning Centre they will learn the fundamentals that will prepare them for elementary school, all the while supported by caring, nurturing teachers and educators whose primary goal is to see your child grow and succeed.
Standards at Bloom Learning Centre are the very highest. All our dedicated teachers are professionally qualified and are supported by teaching assistants that are experienced, highly trained, enthusiastic about teaching and provide a rich and highly interactive learning environment.

Our mission is to provide all children in our care with a safe, friendly, home-like atmosphere, where they feel relaxed and at ease, where they can discover and develop their social and learning skills with their peers, their parents and their teachers. Each child is a unique individual that deserves the best learning experience, one that encompasses a supportive, caring, home-like environment under the guidance of professionally trained and nurturing adults.
We aim to ensure that children enrolled at Bloom Learning Centre learn and grow in a nurturing and fun environment, setting the foundation for a lifelong love of education and success in school and life.
We believe that children acquire knowledge about the physical and social world through playful interaction with objects and people, learning through hands-on experiences. We believe that an activity-based curriculum is the best way to accommodate differences in development and learning styles, where teachers are facilitators in the learning process and are responsive to the individual needs of each child.
We are strong believers in themes as a way for young children to integrate formal concepts.
We also strongly believe that children should be treated with respect and dignity and that parent involvement is vital as part of an educational partnership between child, parent and school.
Bloom Learning Centre’s classrooms operate in an atmosphere designed to encourage every child's inquisitiveness in a healthy learning environment. Classrooms are brightly decorated, spacious and well equipped, with multiple unique learning stations that encourage development, social interaction, individual exploration and creative skills. Our high ratio of teachers to students and unique classroom setup offers a stimulating, secure, and intimate environment for children to learn.
Cleanliness is taken very seriously at Bloom Learning Centre and we take every precaution to ensure a clean and healthy environment for children. Classrooms are sanitized to a higher standard than licensing requirements, further reducing the risk of infection and spreading of germs. Children are encouraged to wash their hands throughout the day by singing songs and being taught about health and hygiene, including respiratory etiquette. All spaces in the Centre and the objects that children come in contact with are regularly disinfected.
We take every effort to ensure the safety of your child. Safety and security policy is stringent and procedures are strictly enforced. Some highlights include:
Security: While we promote an ‘open door’ policy, our main doors are locked for security once class begins and are reopened fifteen minutes prior to pick up. We welcome visitors to visit the school during class time, but you must use the doorbell to gain entrance.
Visitor Precautions: Only authorized persons may pick up a child; anyone unfamiliar to our staff will be asked to provide identification. See our Parent Handbook for more details.
Emergencies: We adhere to all Health Department, Fire Marshall, and education regulations. We hold regular fire drills and, working closely with local safety agencies, have devised emergency plans that cover all major contingencies.
Qualifications: Our teachers and assistants have extensive experience in the field of early childhood development. They are also trained in first aid / CPR. In addition, we conduct stringent background checks to ensure the high quality of our teachers, assistants and volunteers.
