启萌 | 幼儿教育中心
At Buds & Blossoms Child Care and Early Education Center (启萌幼儿教育中心), children learn Mandarin while developing all their natural gifts and talents. Located in the Chinatown Boston, just minutes from the train station; our child-centered philosophy, native Chinese-speaking educators, and beautifully appointed classrooms enable children to grow and thrive as individuals, while learning the importance of being a caring member of a community.
We offer full day, 5 days a week, Mandarin Immersion/Reggio Emilia Inspired child care services at an affordable, competitive price. Many Reggio Emilia centers are only half day programs, but here at Buds and Blossoms, we offer full day child care with Mandarin Immersion!
Reggio Emilia Philosophy
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia schools in Italy, we embody a student-directed educational philosophy. Our childcare curriculum builds organically on the children’s curiosity and imagination. Respecting each child’s interests and individuality, we encourage children to explore their environment and themselves.
Children learn through hands-on experience and play.
Reggio Emilia inspired, play-based curriculum.
Parents and teachers are learning partners.

In addition to using both sides of your temporal lobe. Bilingual skills enhance brain development and prepare children for our increasing global society. Start your child today to learn Mandarin!
