Located in Plymouth. Established in 2000, Bloom Early Learning & Child Care (formerly Kids’ Care Connection) is a NAEYC accredited, award-winning, 4-Star Parent Aware rated, non-profit early learning center. Bloom consists of a blend of private-pay and scholarship families, with up to 50% of capacity dedicated to families needing financial assistance.
Grant supports acquisition of Creative Curriculum for Bloom’s soon-to-open second location, which will be at Plymouth Presbyterian. Funding will also support hiring a center director. Bloom is the only local option that provides full-time high-quality care for families in need, an essential service to address hidden and growing pockets of suburban poverty.
