Blossoms Early Learning Center is the spinoff of Homespun Daycare in New Boston, New Hampshire founded by Heidi Risman-Jones in 1995. Since 2010 Heidi has dedicated herself to opening a small commercial center, which is now coming to life as the Blossoms Early Learning Center in Antrim. Heidi’s fifteen years of offering nurturing creative curriculum to children at Homespun is the basis for Blossom’s curriculum.
Blossoms curriculum is rich with creative movement, art, literature, sports, math manipulative, tactile and social pretend play. Children are given choices in a variety of learning centers to encourage each child to develop at their own personal pace. This teaching philosophy is derived from theorists including Piaget and Montessori enriched with Heidi’s creative flair. Blossoms’ curriculum encourages development of cognitive, physical, emotional, and social growth encouraging self- esteem, the love of learning and an “I can try” attitude needed for success throughout life. Your child’s first six years is the foundation for their success in life. Giving your child what he/she needs for future success is our mission!
