I have been sending my 1 year-old son to Apple Blossom Beginnings since September, and I love the care that he gets there. Being a teacher myself, I know that how a school presents itself to the public - its mission and vision - can often be aspirational and not reflect the day-to-day reality of the program. I??ve been impressed with how ABB truly does all the things it claims on the website: art, singing, and time spent outdoors (even in the rain) are daily activities. These folks walk their Waldorf talk.

I have been consistently impressed with the professionalism of the Aunties (as the caregivers are called). When our son had an allergic reaction to something he ate, the Director responded promptly but calmly to the situation, texted me a photo of the rash, and sent someone over to the pharmacy to get an antihistamine, and documented everything. Daily, the Aunties write a long narrative with specifics of child??s day, which goes far beyond the basics of eating, napping and diaper changes. Not only do we learn about the activities our son did, liked, and disliked during the day, but we get a sense of the attention and regard our child??s Auntie gives him.

ABB is run out of a home near the Belmont Library (a new location). The Director lives on site upstairs and is always easy to reach, even after hours. The space - which is uncluttered and free of plastic blinky toys - feels calm, warm and, well ...homey. And we know our son naps well there, which lets us rest easy too. We couldn??t recommend ABB more highly.

Apple Blossom is such a lovely space, full of light, soft colors, songs and smiling Aunties! I always know my daughter is safe and well cared for with love and respect, and she always comes home in good spirits. Morning walks to beautiful Laurelhurst Park, circle time with songs and motions, and thoughtful observance of the children's need for daily rhythm and celebration of the seasons are the highlights for us.

Our daughter has attended Apple Blossom Beginnings for a year now from when it first opened in August 2007. She feels completely at home, due to the warm atmosphere and the very caring staff (called "aunties" and "uncles" by the children). Since this program is so new, it is still a work in progress, but that also means that we as parents have been able to help shape it into what we want it to be for our kids. The children spend a lot of time outside and being engaged in imaginative play. The space is lovely, cozy and clean.
