Bubbles Academy is wonderful! We have attended many classes as well as two years of preschool/pre-kindergarten. It is such a warm and welcoming school to be a part of. We love all the teachers and staff and would highly recommend sending your children here too.
We love Bubbles Academy! I am an educator myself and highly recommend sending your child to Bubbles. My oldest child struggled with separation especially being a pandemic child. Bubbles supported my child and our whole family with the transition. My son is thriving and loves school. His teachers have all be incredible and the administration is knowledgeable and great at communicating. We feel at home at Bubbles and never want to leave.
Our daughter absolutely loves her pre-school room at Bubbles! They have great teachers who care for each student and curate lessons that are relevant and meaningful. Highly recommend based on our experience.
I cannot say enough about how much I love Bubbles Preschool. Our daughter has been so welcomed by the community and embraced 100% for WHO SHE IS. Shortly after they started last year they did a big Pride celebration and I loved that they used this opportunity to talk about all family structures. As we are part of a blended family I know my older girls often grew up feeling like outsiders because they weren't 'normal'. Bubbles is proactive in enforcing that all families are valid. All PEOPLE are valid. The use of the arts and play along with mindfulness, social skills, and academics is awesome - each kid gets the personalized care they need. My child comes home excited each day to discuss what she has learned. We love it and are so grateful!
Bubbles Academy is truly a magical place. The preschool program in Bucktown is amazing, as are all the teachers and staff. My child has grown and learned so much during her two years at Bubbles. From yoga to drama classes to music, she's cultivated a love of the arts thanks to the arts-integrated programming. The classrooms, indoor play spaces, and the outdoor attached nature playground are wonderful, but what makes Bubbles so special is for sure the people. Her teachers are all so accomplished and caring. Bubbles is like a second home for our child and we'll be so sad to say goodbye as she moves on to kindergarten. I highly recommend the preschool program, or any of their fun classes and drop in programs at their multiple locations.
We absolutely LOVE the older twos program at Bubbles. It has been amazing to see the positive skills our daughter is learning there, everything from social skills, language, empathy, imagination and confidence, but what I love most about the program is how they foster these skills through play and exploration. They cater to the whole child in such a positive and encouraging environment and your child’s personality and opinions are so clearly considered and valued. I cannot emphasize enough how amazing Miss Brittny is. She is so cheerful, fun, and thoughtful in her approach with kids, often tailoring the class around what the kids are interested in that day/week. It is so clear that she just “gets” children — whatever that innate feel good quality is in amazing teachers you’ve had in your life, she has it tenfold. When we have discussed my daughter I am always blown away by how well Miss Brittny knows and understands her. I am so thankful that my daughter’s first school experience was with her, she adores her and loves school - she runs into the class most mornings. Everything about Bubbles, from their respect for small children as whole humans, their teaching philosophy, the curriculum, the teachers, the communication and the front desk staff has been wonderful and I could not have asked for a more perfect intro into the preschool world.
These guys were excellent. Preparation was organized, communication was great and overall experience was amazing from the beginning planning stages through my 5 year old's actual bday party. They helped clean up and the space was perfect. All the kids had a great time running around, climbing the playground equipment, tossing logs around and chasing each other, and the grownups had fun talking and enjoying refreshments. 1.5 hours was just the right duration for a 5 year old's bday party. They helped set up and clean up and Julissa and O were simply wonderful.
I took my daughter to the location at the mall for the musics and me class with both Nathan and Melanie. Lucy and I were both pleased with the 30 minute class. Both instructors were very ingaged with the children as Melanie read to the children and both instructors sang to the children and played peak a poo with the children, woke up the animals with musical sounds, etc. When Lucy and I come back to Chicago again I will definitely sign Lucy up for another class.
We have been sending our daughter here for two years and have nothing but good things to say. My daughter loves the school and we are so happy with the all of her teachers and staff. They have been great and always very accommodating. Highly recommend!
