We had such high hopes for this school and our son's experience there. It was his first time attending a preschool and after crying every day that he was left there, for 2 months, I started questioning why. I feel now that it is the lack of teacher guidance and interaction that leaves the children feeling neglected. The parents also feel excluded from the daily school life. There is very little communication to tell the parents what activities are being done and how their child is doing. I hated that there was never an art activity or any organized activity going on - children are expected to guide themselves, which left them everyday to the sandbox. That can only go so far. The lack of teacher supervision is also very concerning. People that are won over by wooden toys, natural setting and home made bread (like me) - be careful! I think this school can be quite detrimental to normal happy children.
We feel so lucky to have our daughter at Blue Sky. Beginning with our first visit to the school, we feel inspired, relaxed and confident in our school choice each and every time we visit the school, whether it's for morning drop-off or one of the thoughtfully planned, lovely class events. I've been an educator for over ten years and I have rarely encountered the kind of grace and wisdom embodied by all of the Blue Sky staff. Their gentle, kind and intentional ways are priceless, and we feel so fortunate to have our daughter in their care several mornings a week. The environment is beautiful and both the enormous care and effort of the staff are evident in the gardens, the materials, the rooms, the food and the playground equipment. Our daughter feels at home at school and it's obvious that each child feels a sense of belonging and comfort in this little treasure of a school. It's truly a joy-filled, serene little school and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Our daughter has attended Blue Sky for the past 2 years and we can only say positive things about our experience as a family! We were introduced to this school in their Morning Glory program on Friday mornings and then easily transitioned into the preschool the following year. When we first walked into Mindy's classroom, we were inspired as parents. All of the teachers are very loving, teach with intention, and are knowledgable early educators. When you are a part of this school, you are truly part of a loving community. My daughter comes home after a day at school happy as can be singing songs, doing finger plays, and telling happy stories. We highly recommend this beautiful neighborhood school!
This school is a calming presence in a hurried world! Blue Sky Kindergarten has served children and their families in the community for over 20 years, and that says alot. My daughter thrived at BSK and so did my husband and I. We were looking for a child friendly, play oriented and imaginative environment which also provided parent education and we found it at Blue Sky. We loved the way in which its rich philosophy preserved and protected early childhood. There is an art in working with young children and it is found at BSK by providing an environment to gradually develop in such outstanding creative ways. Whether it be water color painting, puppetry, morning walks (in all kinds of weather) baking, or building (to name a few) all children are included and encouraged to explore and thrive! The seasoned teachers at BSK really are a voice for advocating the wonder of childhood and the inner life of the child. This jewel of a school in our community provides a solid foundation for future growth in taking on the more demanding school years down the road. Our family has benefited greatly from its example. We are grateful as parents for our childs long lasting experience at Blue Sky.
