Infant Staff (6-12 months old) [Please excuse our mess -- Site Under Construction!]
Sara has been with Bloom for several years assisting in our Primary and Early Childhood environments. Since summer 2018 Sara has been running our Infant program, helping to get it up and off the ground. She has done training in Montessori Infant care and environments through the Center for Guided Montessori Studies.
In addition to her work with us here at Bloom, she has two lovely children who keep her busy outside of work! Her youngest child also has attended Bloom for the last several years. Through her work both here at Bloom and from her perspective as a Bloom parent as well, she has developed a replete understanding of Bloom Montessori practices and Montessori pedagogy in regards to infant care and development.
