After the pandemic put a pause on our work with children and families, we couldn't be more excited to be back at it! We will be kicking off this winter with some new & improved In-Class Programs for parents and children in addition to revamped Programs to support local preschools and early childhood educators in our community.
We are excited to continue to grow and Bloom in the new year!

We are a dynamic team of highly trained and state licensed educators in the area of Early Childhood Special Education who bring more than 40 years of experience working with early learners and their families in the areas of communication, social skills, behavior, cognition, gross motor, fine motor and adaptive skills.
Kids In Full Bloom was born after years of ideas and dreams shared between two public school teachers who knew they had the potential to do more, teach more, reach more and impact more. We recognize the need for those children who don't meet the qualifications for a diagnosis, who don't qualify for special education services, and those who need more than what is being provided through their current programs. We serve all children from typically developing and beyond. We serve the whole family in the environments where they face challenges.
What do we do?
Here at Kids In Full Bloom, LLC we use a trans-disciplinary approach to support families, caregivers and educators struggling with young children facing challenges in behavior, social and communication skills. Using straightforward methods and techniques, we help the child in your life blossom in all areas of development.
Our approach is unique! What sets us apart is our coaching method; Working together as a team, we coach you, to give you the tools to help teach your child how to communicate, interact and develop functional skills as they grow into a confident learner. We offer parent coaching through Parent-Child Programs both in a classroom setting and in the home. We will provide the necessary supports to ensure long-term success for you and your child across all environments.
We design programs for each individual. Programs may combine home visits, preschool/daycare visits and/or social skills groups. We make recommendations as skills are gained, interfering behaviors are reduced, and progress is made.
We serve the early childhood population between ages 2 & 6 in the Northern Virginia area. From typically developing and beyond.

"Our family was so blessed to work with the educator. She always engaged my son with her games and books and patient teaching style, so he looked forward to her visits and truly bonded with her. I'm so grateful he had her early intervention before public school."

"Miss Rene' and Miss Kat, Kids In Full Bloom, changed our lives. Their experience with special kids taught us as parents how to effectively reach our son when it comes to learning and discipline. the social group has helped my son learn to take turns, communicate, and play with other children. the private lessons for my son have been amazing. It was a challenge in the beginning but now he waits at the door for Miss Rene'. Miss Rene' has taken time to help me communicate with my sons school, his teacher, and observed him in class so we could decide what the best fit is for him. I don't think we would have made the progress that we have in the last 6 months without Kids In Full Bloom. We would be lost without them. Looking forward to enrolling my daughter when she is ready. Miss Rene' even gives us little hints to when it comes to my daughter. She is a thoughtful and selfless teacher. If all teachers were like her every kid in the world would be great successes."
