About Us

Welcome to Bloomington Early Learning Services, a four-star Parent-Aware rated program encompassing early childhood family education (ECFE), early childhood screening and preschool programming for three-year-olds and four-year-olds. Through these programs, we aim to ensure our youngest learners  have a strong foundation for lifelong learning. 

ECFE programming is offered at Pond Center and Southwood Center, with preschool classes offered at Pond, Southwood and eight Bloomington elementary schools: Hillcrest Community School, Indian Mounds, Normandale Hills, Oak Grove, Poplar Bridge, Valley View, Washburn, and Westwood. Early Childhood Screening takes place at Pond Center and is recommended to take place at age 3. 

Early Success Videos

Bloomington Kindergarten teachers created a set of learning videos in order to meet the needs of our youngest learners. Each video highlights letters, sounds, numbers, or words that we want children to know by the end of their kindergarten experience.

View the clips on our Early Success YouTube playlist and repeat the chants together for a fun and interactive learning experience.
